My acer chromebook spin 713 does not seem to support android apps, but all reviews i've seen states that it does support android apps - can anybody clarify
There is no option to "turn on" next to "Install apps and games from Google Play on your Chromebook"

    im a bit confused on this one as the offical list has the older model of it ( CP713-1W ) but not the newer one ( CP713-2W )  ( https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/dev/chromium-os/chrome-os-systems-supporting-android-apps ). Hopefully this isnt a silly oversight on behalf of google!

    One of the suugest things is swapping between the Beta and Stable channels so you could give that a go!

    Whats the version of chrome OS you are running at the moment?

    Is Google Play installed? It's possible some Android apps won't work on the big screen, a bunch of them are designed on only work with the screen width to height ratios that match phone screens.
