You can run Android on Chromebooks via the Steam Client into CrossOver for Android

If you’re the proud owner of a Chromebook Pixel 2, or Acer R11, head on over to Settings > About Chrome OS > Check for and apply updates.

Google released Android for Intel based ChromeBooks. AND CrossOver for Android installed and ran on a Google ChromeBook. More importantly, we were able to install the Steam Client into CrossOver for Android and run LIMBO and other games. MORE IMPORTANTLY, we have DirectX 9 support, keyboard support, mouse support, and sound support today.

You can run CrossOver through Android on a ChromeBook running a Windows based game launched from the Steam client.

In May, 2016, Google announced they were bringing Google Play (the most popular app store in the world) to Chromebooks. This meant you could download and use Android apps, so you can make a Skype call, work with Office files and be productive offline -- or take a break with games like Minecraft, Hearthstone or Clash of Clans. The same apps that run on phones and tablets can now run on Chromebooks without compromising their speed, simplicity or security. This is good for users and great for developers - in addition to phones and tablets, they will be able to easily bring their apps to laptops. And all this is built on top of Chrome OS, so users will continue to have everything they love in their Chromebooks.
