Google announces Steam alpha for Chrome OS

According to some leaks by Android Police, Google has been working for many years to bring Steam to Chrome OS. Steam alpha can change the entire Chrome OS into a real gaming platform.

Google and Steam have been working for more than 2 years, according to some leaks provided by Android Police. After it was revealed that Google has been working with Steam, Google made another big announcement. Google announced its partnership with Valve. It is an American Game Developer and digital distribution company. In addition to Steam, Valve owns the franchises of Half-life, Counter-Strike, Left 4 Dead, Dota, and many more. It was founded in 1996 by some former employees of  Microsoft, Gabbe Newell, and Mike Harrington.

Ron Amadeo is a specialist in Android OS and Google products. Here is his tweet that Google announces Steam alpha for Chrome OS to make it a real gaming platform:

The Google for Games Developer Summit

“The Google For Games Developer Summit” is a program by Google in which it discusses about the upcoming plans and projects of the company related to gaming. It also offers some programs to help Game Developers. In the Google For Games Developer Summit 2022, one presenter thoughtlessly revealed the Steam for Chrome OS alpha program, saying it has launched but is not available yet.

So it’s a piece of bad news for those who thought that It had launched. But we have some other information that might help you. Here’s the list of supported models provided by Android Police:

  • Volta – Acer Chromebook 514
  • Volet – Acer Chromebook 515
  • Voxel – Acer Chromebook Spin 713
  • Delbin – ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5
  • Drobit – ASUS Chromebook CX9
  • Elemi – HP Pro c640 G2 Chromebook
  • Lindar – Lenovo’s mystery Chromebook

You can also use Steam on some other Chromebooks, but the above list shows the models running Steam without modification.

When is Google officially launching Steam to Chrome OS?

There is no clue when Google is officially launching Steam to Chrome OS until now. So the fans of the Chrome OS will have to stick to the apps and games library on the Google Playstore. But it looks that these will not have to wait for too long. The only official statement by Google is that it’s “Coming Soon.”

A post on the Google Community Platform says:

As you may have already heard, our team is working with Valve to bring Steam to Chrome OS. We are very excited to share that we’ll be landing an early, alpha-quality version of Steam on Chrome OS in the Dev channel for a small set of Chromebooks coming soon. Please come back to the forum for more information!

Stay tuned for more information about Google’s announcement to make Chrome OS a real gaming platform.
