LightSail featured in Google’s Apps for Education

Google announced that Android apps will be coming to Chromebooks during Google I/O, its annual conference for developers. In a post on the official blog for Google for Education, the company notes that in 2015 US K-12 schools purchased more Chromebooks than all other devices combined and that adoption continues to increase in classrooms around the globe. Google for Education is bringing Android apps to select Chromebooks “to add even more flexibility to these fast, secure and easy-to-manage devices, offering access to more content, increased offline options and additional touch-optimized apps for touchscreen models.”

LightSail is featured among popular apps “already available today on Chromebooks through the App Runtime for Chrome program.” The article states, “since LightSail’s Android app became available, students have had another tool in their digital backpack to help them build reading comprehension skills.”
