Chrome and Android

Sun Aug 20, 2017 8:04 am

Folks,

Am interested in trying Android and Chrome on a Pi (probably multi boot).

As these are both screen touch operated I am assuming they work similar to connecting a mouse to an OTG adapter for phones.

Appreciate any comments as to usability.

ChromeOS has never been ported, but ChromiumOS respin may suffice:

flintOS was nice but got bored with it because no updates (because no newer chromium available via raspberry pi), but maybe they release soon V60.
