Would you rather have a powerful, but heavy gaming laptop, or a lightweight & portable laptop that can only play a certain Dinosaur Game?
And if you could, would you rather have both?
A heavy laptop that can only play a Dinosaur Game aka my old and retired university laptop - may he rest in pepperoni.
A lightweight laptop that can play the latest PC releases. Something like a Chromebook with access to Shadow, for example.
And what if we told you our developers just released an update to Shadow’s backend, which enables you to use Shadow on your beloved Chromebook.
As a refresher, check out our dedicated blog article to learn more about our Alpha, Beta and Official release candidates.
If you own a Chromebook and you’d like to power it up with Shadow, please make sure that it has access to the Google Play Store. This is the norm for most Chromebooks released after 2015, so if yours is older: double check, just to be sure.
A working Internet connection (ethernet is highly recommended) is needed. :kappa:
Where to get it?
You can get your hands on this new update through the Shadow Android Beta App which you can find in the “app section” of your account page.

Oh, and just out of curiosity.
What is it that you love most about your Chromebook? Serious question from a European where pretty much no one knows what that is.
💡 When using the Shadow Beta, you can expect more crashes, errors and even data loss. So please make sure to save all your necessary data before testing Shadow Beta clients.
