Google acquires Cameyo to bring vistualised Windows apps on ChromeOS
Last year, Google and Cameyo collaborated to introduce a ChromeOS-integrated virtual application delivery system. Currently, the software behemoth purchased it for an unknown sum.

Google has successfully acquired Cameyo, a software virtualization startup with which it entered into a partnership in 2023 to enable Windows apps to run on ChromeOS. “By bringing the Cameyo team’s expertise in-house, we are doubling down on our commitment to delivering a streamlined experience for virtualized applications,” Google stated in a news release issued by the firm.

Google and Cameyo teamed in 2023 to provide local file system functionality for virtual applications running on ChromeOS. Google improved the clipboard support for these virtual apps with Cameyo’s assistance. Since the American software behemoth purchased Cameyo, users of Chromebooks now have simpler access to Windows apps that have been virtualized on their devices.

How to Access Windows Apps on ChromeOS with Cameyo
For a long time, companies have operated virtual apps or old versions of apps (legacy apps) on their systems without installing them by using virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) technologies. But this procedure necessitates specialization and presents management and security challenges for the businesses.

Cameyo employs Virtual Application Delivery (VAD) technology in place of VDI. With this method, virtual apps can operate on ChromeOS without requiring a Windows desktop emulator or difficult installation processes. These programs show up as progressive web apps (PWA) on ChromeOS, which facilitates simple file system integration.

From a customer perspective, the VAD model streamlines app administration and enables enterprises to maintain software updates with enhanced security. With virtual apps running as PWAs, ChromeOS allows such apps to function like a native app and the user is not required to sign-in to a separate virtual desktop environment first to access the virtual app.

What does Google’s purchase of Cameyo signify for owners of Chromebooks?
According to Google’s news release, ChromeOS users will have simpler access to legacy apps that don’t require complicated installations or updates. Furthermore, by making app deployment on systems easier regardless of the device’s location, Cameyo’s technological integration with ChromeOS will assist enterprises in adopting web-based technology. Better data privacy and lower virtual app operation costs are two further benefits.
