Well, this Chromebook is only for my use, I haven't tested anything of any
particular educational value.  The only Android apps I've put on it so far
is a Bridge game I really like that's only on Android, and Words with
Friends, just to test the Chromebook's ability to run Android apps.  So
far, so good.

Last I knew, you couldn't run Android apps on Chromebooks that are managed
in a GSuite domain, though, so this one intentionally hasn't been
enrolled.  THat's obviously a milestone we'll have to reach before
encouraging teachers to check out the play store as well as the chrome web
store.
