Well, well well. If you are a casual gamer but stuck with your Chromebook because you cannot play games in the office environment? Well, no need to worry, because Google is working to support Steam on Chromebooks.
This is confirmed by Google itself at CES to the people at Android Police. However, there is no further information that how Google will do this or when.
If we consider that this is going to happen, then Google is going to use the underlying Linux compatibility for Steam. This can be done, and hence can be pushed to the older generation laptops. However, there is going to be a serious problem. The Chromebook comes with somewhat low-end processors, and good for nothing graphics.
But the Google Spokesperson confirmed that AMD is placing their Radeon Graphics on the table. When asked about the involvement of Nvidia, the reply was – We cannot disclose much information about that.
