ARChon is an emulator built as a browser extension to Google Chrome. Google launched a technology called App Runtime for Chrome (ARC), which allowed Android apps to run on Chrome OS. Shortly after, a developer took advantage of this technology to create ARChon, an extension for Google Chrome that allows you to run Android apps directly from the browser. ArchON is a more focused app for developers who create applications for Chrome OS. It is the best way to run Android on Chrome OS. In other words, since it is complex, its installation is not a suitable solution for everyone and we will not recommend using ArchOn for games. On the other hand, if you like to use apps to improve Chrome OS performance, ArchOn is what you need.
It is possible to install and run Android applications or games through their APK files without leaving the browser. One detail to keep in mind is that before the applications can be installed in the emulator, they must be “transformed” through a tool offered by the emulator’s creator in the project’s official repository on GitHub.
Despite what it might seem, it is not a good option for the user who wants to “go easy”: its installation requires activating Chrome’s ‘developer mode’ because it is not included in the Play Store, and any app that we want to run We must previously convert it into a Chrome extension, using the tools that ARCHon collects on its website.
