Yes, you read it correct. The good old Google Chrome is not only just a browser. In 2014, in an attempt to unify Chrome OS and Android, Google announced the move to bring android apps on Chrome platform. Though Chrome enjoys a huge user base today, very few of them actually know that android apps can be used with Google Chrome.
