the Chrome team is working—very possibly in cooperation with Valve—to bring Steam to Chromebooks.

Without adding more Liu simply hinted that there will be a Steam support on Google Chrome that will unlock more possibilities in for the thin notebooks in future. During CES 2020 Intel revealed Intel’s Tiger Lake Micro-Architecture which will empower portable laptops to run high-end games like Destiny 2. Tiger Lake Micro-Architecture also features DG1 Discreet Graphic support that will definitely power ultra-think notebooks to run high-end games but at what cost?

There is no confirmed timeline when Chrome OS will get support for Steam, but it is a good news coming up for those who are looking for gaming support on portable notebooks especially that is powered by Chrome OS. This is more like porting games directly to Linux if there is a kind of Steam OS support, but yet nothing enough is revealed.
