Looks like Chrombook uses Chrome OS = Linux. Now I know why they are so inexpensive.
There are plenty of entry level sub 200 buck brand new laptops that run on Android OS instead of Chrome OS. The problem with running Blink on one of these laptops is…the app display does not rotate for horizontal displays. Blink mobile app is meant for phones and tablets - vertical display. Granted when viewing a video clip you can rotate the display to horizontal to make it bigger. However, much of the Blink app does not work when display is rotated.
Been 3 years now and Blink app does not support being used on desktop or laptop computers. Also does not support being used on smart televisions. Blink app is a mobile app only. Putting the Blink app on a Chromebook will be a waste of your time. .
