There are times when you need to run the Windows version of an app instead of its Chrome app on your Samsung Galaxy Chromebook. Until now, the partnership between Google and Parallels allowed enterprise users to run Windows and its apps on Chrome OS. However, the Chromebook specs required to run Parallels Desktop were an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor with 16GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Well, that’s about to change, as Parallels has announced that it’s extending support to more Chromebooks, especially lower-powered Chromebooks. Parallels Desktop can now be run on your Samsung Galaxy Chromebook and Galaxy Chromebook 2 running Chrome OS equipped with an 11th Gen Intel Core i3 processor and the new AMD Ryzen 3 5000 series. Notably, RAM and storage requirements remain unchanged .

Users will be able to run full Windows apps online and offline on less powerful Chrome OS Chromebooks. Additionally, Parallels has partnered with HP to offer a one-year free license on select HP Chrome OS Enterprise devices. You can view the full list here. Interested parties can purchase Parallels for $69.99 per year per enterprise user, or $39.99 for education use.
