Today, Shadow has announced that the Android Beta client now supports Chromebooks!
You will now be able to turn your Chromebook into a Windows 10 gaming rig, thanks to the power of Shadow and the cloud.
Yes, there are a few requirements. First and foremost, you will need to make sure that your Chromebook can access the Google Play Store. If your Chromebook was released after 2015, it should be sufficient for this. But, you can double-check to be sure.
The second requirement is a decent internet connection. Remember that the minimum recommended internet speed for Shadow is 15 Mbps download. I would personally recommend 25-30 Mbps to be safe.
Where can I get it?
You can head over to your accounts page and click on the "app section." Here, you will be able to download the Android Beta application for your Chromebook.
My thoughts on this release
This is a huge improvement for Shadow. Although not direct competitors, Shadow is technically going up against giants such as NVIDIA, Google, Amazon, and Microsoft. Out of these giants, Chromebook support is confirmed on at least three of them.
This puts them a step ahead for those looking to game on their Chromebook.
But now, Shadow came in like the Koolaid man. With Chromebook support from Shadow, you can now turn your Chromebook into a powerful workstation rig that you can use for either gaming, creativity, or professional work.
Although it is in beta currently, it is a significant step forward in bringing powerful computing to lower-end devices at a reasonable cost.
