Steam games are at the top of the list for online gamers. With various genres and themes available on the service, there is always something to look forward to and get addicted to when playing online. Steam is a popular platform for gaming, which is available on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
Chromebook users are still waiting for Google to launch support for a dedicated Steam app. While many workarounds on how to install Steam games on Chromebooks become useful for online players, quick, easy, and official access to Steam is more ideal.
Now, there is news that Steam for Chrome OS will soon set its foot in public view, as Google is adding more Chromebook models to support the platform. Steam for ChromeOS or Borealis first gave the online world a glimpse two years ago during a Google reveal of the project. But, while Google is yet to announce when the big launch is, more Chromebook laptops will be able to support the gaming platform at launch.
