Google brings Steam to the first Chromebooks

Google brings Steam to the first Chromebooks

  • ChromeOS now has Steam as an app.
  • PC games can be used on Linux system.
  • Chromebooks are now suitable for gamers too.

The day has come when ChromeOS also wants to compete with Windows and other platforms in the gaming space. Google has now released the first early version of Steam. Chromebooks are now more than PCs with Android browsers and games. They support modern cloud gaming, the most popular Android mobile games, and now real PC games.

Steam on Chromebooks: nothing is left to chance

In short: Steam in the alpha version requires at least 8 gigabytes of RAM and also an 11th generation Core i5 or i7. So pretty up-to-date and fast hardware, which probably isn’t included in most Chromebooks sold. But it’s also not a new phenomenon that games need a little more power.

Compatible Chromebooks (03/22):

  • Acer Chromebook 514 (CB514-1W)
  • Acer Chromebook 515 (CB515-1W)
  • Acer Chromebook Spin 713 (CP713-3W)
  • ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5500)
  • ASUS Chromebook CX9 (CX9400)
  • HP Pro c640 G2 Chromebook
  • Lenovo Chromebook 5i-14

Google says more Chromebooks are likely to come as new devices with adequate performance become available. With the devices available to date, the selection of devices that support the necessary standards remains small.

Therefore, PC games can be played on Chromebooks, the first international colleagues report after their tests. The list of supported games is already very long for day one and includes titles like Fallout 4, Portal, Civilization, Left 4 Dead 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, and many more. This list will grow over time.
