What this Google App Runtime helps to? With this new feature you can install your Android apps & Android Games in your PC by using Google Chrome. So at this time, you won’t be in need of any third party emulators such as Bluestack and other tools. Isn’t cool?
So while developing the Android apps, most the developers use Android Virtual Device (AVD) to test their apps. In order to do so, they need sometimes and good RAM memory. So with this App Runtime feature, they can test their new apps easily and effectively. These things can be done with simple Chrome Extension named as ARC Welder.

ARC Welder extension got simple base operation. This extension uses Google App Runtime for Google Chrome. So this thing is used to show Chrome apps like Evernote, Vine and other which employs like a Chrome OS. ARC Welder works similar to that, but in this feature every single operation can be done within the Chrome Browser.
