Steam for Chromebooks is here. Well, sort of, anyway. Launched in an official Alpha capacity back in late March, the long awaited 'Borealis' project has finally arrived and is quite impressive for an Alpha build. Games run pretty smoothly for devices utilizing non-dedicated graphics cards and after a few technical setup steps, the whole thing feels very thought-out and thorough. Sure, there are bugs that still need a bit of squashing, but we've been able to play some games in our Steam library with better results than we've ever seen on a Chromebook, and that's exciting.

We realized, however, that we'd yet to make a simple, straightforward guide on how to get this up and running on supported devices, so we wanted to put that out there for anyone looking. Now, you can watch through the video, follow the steps, and get Steam games running on your supported Chromebook with relative ease.
