The popularity of Kodi is just growing as more people demand reliable entertainment media center software for home users. And Kodi, supported by the open-source community seems never stops working on improving the software along with further compatibility with other operating systems.

On their download page, Kodi has its stable versions on Windows, Linux, Android, macOS, iOS, tvOS, and even DIY-project PC like Raspberry Pi. It seems there is one major operating system missing; Chrome OS.

That’s actually not entirely true. Chrome OS does not require another porting to its platform. Chrome OS lives under the same environment as Android. It means Kodi can be installed on a Chromebook the same way it is installed on a regular Android phone/tablet.

Just like the Android version, Kodi on Chromebook will receive automatic updates through Play Store.

Although you may get Kodi on a Chromebook via a Linux development environment tool, the process isn’t exactly easy for non-developer. Not to mention you won’t get the same level of protection. In the end, Google Play Store is undoubtedly the best way to get apps to your Chrome OS device.
