Install and Run Android 12L on Chromebook

To run Android 12L on a Chromebook, your Chrome OS device must first meet certain eligibility criteria. I have mentioned all the requirements and steps mentioned lucidly below. Follow the step-by-step instructions to run Android 12L on your Chromebook.

Requirements to use Android 12L

  • You need a powerful Chromebook to run Android 12L, preferably with an Intel or AMD processor. If an ARM-based Mediatek or Snapdragon processor is powering your Chrome OS device, you can’t test Android 12L at this time. In the future, Google may add support for these tables as well.
  • You need Linux support on your Chromebook. Therefore, most school-issued Chromebooks may not be able to take advantage of Android 12L, at least for now. Note that Google recently allowed Linux to be used even on school Chromebooks, but it will be up to the school administrator to unlock the feature. Finally, you will need nested KVM support to use the Android 12L emulator on your Chromebook.

Set up Linux on your Chromebook

  • First, you need to set up Linux on your Chromebook. You can follow our step-by-step guide to get Linux running on your Chrome OS device in no time. Make sure to allocate more than 20 GB disk space for Linux.
  • After installing Linux, open Terminal and run the following command to keep everything up to date.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get update -y

  • If you get an error such as “unavailable” or “unable to connect”, run the following command. This will change the Buster repository to oldstable. This is one of the current problems with Linux on Chromebook.
  • After running this command run the above command and this time it will work without any problem.

sudo apt-get update –allow-releaseinfo-change

  • Next, you need to install the Java Development Kit (JDK) on Linux on your Chromebook. To do this, run the following command in Terminal.

sudo apt -y install default-jdk libnss3

Install Android 12L on Chromebook

  • So go ahead and download the Android Studio Canary version from the link here. It will be downloaded in DEB file format.
  • After that, open the Files app and move the DEB file to the Linux section.
  • Now open the DEB file and install it immediately. Please note that the installation process will take some time, so please be patient.
  • Once the installation is complete, open Android Studio from the launcher. You will find it in the “Linux” folder.
  • Now follow the on-screen setup instructions and keep everything default. Click “Next” and complete the setup. The installer will download some packages from the internet.
  • Once the installation is complete, navigate to the Windows/Mac section above and follow the instructions in Step 4. From there, the steps for Windows, Macs, and Chromebooks are the same.
