Steam for ChromeOS enters beta stage, support expands to more devices

07 November 2022 3

Steam for ChromeOS debuted earlier this year and has been in the alpha testing stage. This changes with ChromeOS 108 release as Steam for ChromeOS finally enters the beta stage. Zach Alcorn, Product Manager for ChromeOS (Google), made the announcement via an official blog post.

Chromebook users can now try out Steam games on a compatible machine as long as they are running ChromeOS Beta 108.0.5359.24 or higher. The alpha build of Steam for Chrome OS had pretty high requirements which means only a few devices were eligible to run the software. The support has now been expanded by making changes to the required specifications.

The team has now added support for 12th Gen Intel Core CPUs and AMD Ryzen 5000 C-Series processors. The requirement has also been lowered to work with Intel Core i3 and Ryzen 3 processors. Alcorn says these changes mean Steam for ChromeOS now supports three times more devices than before. There are now some new devices from Lenovo, Acer, and Asus.

It should be noted the newly added specifications are minimum requirements. It means while these will allow you to run Steam games on your Chromebook, you might still not get the best performance. The team still recommends at least 16GB of RAM and a Core i5/Ryzen 5 processor for the best experience.

These are the newly supported devices:

  • Acer Chromebook 514 (CB514-1W)
  • Acer Chromebook 515 (CB515-1W)
  • Acer Chromebook 516 GE
  • Acer Chromebook Spin 514 (CP514-3H, CP514-3HH, CP514-3WH)
  • Acer Chromebook Spin 713 (CP713-3W)
  • Acer Chromebook Spin 714 (CP714-1WN)
  • Acer Chromebook Vero 514
  • ASUS Chromebook CX9 (CX9400)
  • ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5500)
  • ASUS Chromebook Flip CX5 (CX5601)
  • ASUS Chromebook Vibe CX55 Flip
  • Framework Laptop Chromebook Edition
  • Elite c640 14 inch G3 Chromebook
  • HP Elite c645 G2 Chromebook
  • HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook
  • HP Pro c640 G2 Chromebook
  • Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming Chromebook 16\
  • Lenovo 5i-14 Chromebook
  • Lenovo Flex 5i Chromebook 14
