Android apps on Chromebook now – 2016

The most exciting news of the year for me is ” Play Store and Android applications going to be launched on Chromebook”. As a huge Chromebook OS believer, it was a great news for me. Now we will be having new online and offline apps on Chromebook.

chromebook

Though, there is still time left for Play store to release on Chromebook officially, you all can experience them on your Chromebook easily. So, if you download Chrome developer channel on your ASUS Chromebook flip you surely can experience Play store right away. When we were going through the app on Chromebook, it was noticeable that few applications were not compatible with the web version as such. Most of the applications like Google Hangout, Keep, Twitter, Microsoft word, Excel and games like Badland, Pac – man, Ramayana adventures and many more are working well on the Chrome OS web. There experience were as good as the Android phone.

For instance, Google Docs being an Android app was working very well for web users. On Chromebook Google Docs you can experience Google docs extra features that are not available for Android mobile users, due to the small screen. If we talk about Google Play movies and songs, then let met tell you that, be it Android phone or Tablet, Google play movies and songs use to work perfectly well. Indeed, now when it is running for Chromebook we can experience the same performance.

In fact, we can say that Google play store and applications are doing a good job for Chromebook OS as they do for Android devices by default. Most of the apps are not developed for Tablets and Chromebook. This is the basic problem with the developers, they launch the app for the Android phone but not the tablet. For that matter, it is an afterthought for them. We are expecting to see the official play store for Chromebook to recognizes the issue with the apps and launch it with a bang.

Indeed, there would be people who love to use Chromebook despite having few things or apps in it. We can say that soon Play store will fill in the gaps. Well, we can just expect Google play store and app developers to work hard on their Chrome OS version for now. Ultimately, Google apps like games, folders, entertainment are working well on Chromebook but not all.

SnapTube for Windows

SnapTube is this amazing app that can be a big asset for internet savvy folks.; This simple app can help you download any video you lay your hand on. Free movies, YouTube videos and TV shows are all available for download using SnapTube. SnapTube for Windows is also a recent popular query. Let’s see what we can do for this app.

SnapTube for Windows PC

SnapTube is an Android app. The app comes from outside the play store, as an APK file. Unfortunately, SnapTube APK cannot be processed by Windows. Windows PC requires your file to be an exe file only, or it will not recognise the data inside it as an application. And as luck would have it, the developers have no SnapTube exe file available to the public.

All this would normally indicate that we cannot have SnapTube on our Windows PC. But thankfully for Android Emulators, we can. What is an Android Emulator, you ask? Well, it is an app that runs Android OS in a window in your PC. This makes a secondary platform on your PC on which your Android app is hosted.

The Android Emulator we recommend is BlueStacks, which is available on their official site (bluestacks.com). Another Emulator you could try out is Andy (andyroid.net). And if you’re willing to pay some bucks, we could suggest ManyMo, which is exclusively online and has a lot many features, most often appreciated by developers.

SnapTube for Windows PC; Procedure

SnapTube for Windows can be effectively used using an Android Emulator. Here are the steps you need to follow to get the app up and running…

  1. On your PC, download SnapTube APK. The apk file can be found on several third party websites. Google Search “SnapTube APK”.

Let’s try out SHAREit live

We decided since we’re all so swamped by instructions in text on how to use and manage Android apps but there’s so little demos available with visual instructions, we should include a video post as well.

The following post is from the YouTube channel SlashGear. Let’s try to see how we can use SHAREit to send and receive files.

We hope this helps you get more info on how to use this awesome app. Do write to us if you have any queries.

3 Reasons Why SHAREit App Is Faster Than Bluetooth

In any smart device, the most important thing is the data. People have tons and tons of data in various formats like images, videos, songs or documents. Trust me, people have nothing to do with smart devices if they are without data.

circle-graphic

Storing a data is not an issue. You can bigger SD cards of flash drives for storing an immense amount of data. But what if you have to transfer this data on another device! Yeah, this is the main problem. People even get goose bumps just by thinking about the data transfer. So how will you do this! I am asking this question. Tell me about the fastest method you will use for transferring data between two devices.

devices

Bluetooth! This is the most obvious answer you will know. Yeah, Bluetooth is still part of all smart people. People use this technology to send data from one device to another. You can instantly send an image to another. Well, that was easy. But let’s talk complicated! You have to send a whole playlist of songs or HD movies! We got a problem here. Because Bluetooth is like gonna take lifetime to transfer these files.

Now you must be thinking about what are other possible alternatives? First answer why you like Android or iOS so much? Apps! That’s what interesting part of the smart operating system. Yes, apps can be used to transfer larger files instantly to between two devices.

Most popular apps include Shareit, Xender and Zapya etc. In my opinion, Shareit is on top. It has replaced the Bluetooth completely and in a better way. It is much faster than Bluetooth. Sending large files is a matter of few seconds now. Shareit made this possible.

Here are the top three reasons why Shareit App is faster than Bluetooth.

No network is required for sending files using Shareit. Shareit does not use Bluetooth technology. It uses the wifi technology for sending large files. But to be clear, Shareit only uses technology not data traffic. It means whenever you will send the file through Shareit, you internet is not gonna charge anything.

In this way, Shareit works 40% faster than Bluetooth. Huge songs and HD videos can be sent within minutes.

There is no compulsion of data transfer. You can send any type of data to any one.

Another best feature is compatibility with all devices and operating system. Even it allows cross platform functionality.

This way, Shareit works faster than Bluetooth.

Note: It does not matter if you are using SHAREit on PC or SHAREit on android device, the speed remains lightning fast.
