noviembre 27, 2019

To execute Android applications on a desktop PCso far it has been possible through Android emulators or other methods – we have already talked about it in this article and in this second article – but nothing official so far had come from Google. A few days ago, Google has introduced a new feature called "ARC"Which stands for Android Runtime forChrome. ARC allows you to run Android apps within the Google Chrome browser. Unfortunately, Google has limitedARC Initially, Chrome OS, not only, butARC can only officially run 4 Android applications, which means users will not be able to fully enjoy this feature as long as these restrictions remain.

But when it comes to Google, you can expect more developments as an open source project. And when it comes to Android, the first thing that comes with an Android power user is to go beyond the boundaries of official apps. Since the sole purpose of ARC was that of run Android apps on the Chrome browser, some enterprising developers have already got their hands on these limitations to unleash its full potential. Developer Vladikoff has modified ARC and made it compatible with a number of Android applications, not only, ARC now works on Chrome browsers running on any system, such as PC Windows, MAC, Linux and others. The Chrome OS restriction did not exist and the modified version is calledArchon.Initially the application may contain some sketches, but certainly acceptable.
