Any Android app in desktop Chrome?

I know you can get Angry Birds in the desktop Chrome browser.

Does that work with any app in the Google Playstore?  Running it in desktop Chrome?

And I see you can you can transfer apps from one Android device to another.  At least I found apps that say they do that (vs. downloading them new from the Playstore).  Can you take an app from a smartphone/tablet and transfer it to desktop Chrome?  It's an app not listed in the Playstore anymore so downloading it isn't an option.

Hm.   That was psychic...

Looks fairly complicated though.  I tried Angry Birds a year or two ago and it was something like signing into Chrome and then downloading it.

You can't without doing some configuration to your system because Android and Apple devices use different programming languages that are not compatible with each other.

So unless you wanna mess 'round them device, no yo can't.
