6 Currently this feature has not been activated for Acer Chromebook 516 GE. A prerelease version of Steam on ChromeOS Alpha is expected to become available for this Chromebook in the future through the ChromeOS Dev channel. Alpha means anything can break. Due to the inherent instability of the Dev channel and the in-progress nature of this feature, we don’t recommend trying this on a Chromebook that you rely on for work, school, or other daily activities. You will encounter crashes, performance regressions, and never-before-seen bugs - that’s part of the fun! Check for the latest updates here: https://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/steam-on-chromeos/
