Developing For Android Is About To Get  A Lot Easier On Chrome OS

Chromebooks are slowly becoming the laptop of choice for many Android enthusiasts and I’m happy to see that. However for the ones building their own Android apps, a Chromebook might not be the best choice for their main computer. That however looks like it might change very soon.

A bug report filed a while back regarding issues with ADB has possibly revealed to us that Google may soon be adding ADB and fastboot directly into Chrome OS.

These important features of the Android SDK allow developers to perform a number of activities with their devices including transferring data and flashing recovery images.

There’s no news at the moment as to when this will be coming to Chrome OS, but let’s hope it’s not far off. This addition would not only help those developing apps for Android, but those who love to flash a ROM here and there. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments!
