Chrome OS does allow for running Android assets, but:

* They run in an Android container, and do not have access to Chrome
  OS configuration and user files.

* This feature was added relatively recently, and enabling it requires
  specific support code to be written (and released) for each particular
  platform.  It hasn't been done for the platform I'm using.
