About a year ago, we put together a list of thirty apps featuring a dark, but given Android Q will natively support that feature, we wanted to share some more apps that match its dim style. Don't worry though, most of them work with Oreo and Pie too, so you'll still get to join the dark side even if your phone doesn't get updated to Q soon.

20 of the best keyboard compatible Android games for Chrome OS

In light of the recent sale for the Google Pixelbook (that ends today, so make sure to grab one while you can), I thought it might be helpful to roundup some of the better Android games that are compatible with Chrome OS and work well with the keyboard.

This means the titles listed below will mostly retain their original look, and are only slightly updated for use with touchscreen controls and modern hardware.
