Sideloading Android apps on Chromebooks (very) tentatively planned for Chrome OS 74 or 75

Over the weekend, I was asked on Twitter if the recently released Chrome OS 72 Stable Channel added the ability to sideload Android apps on a Chromebook. Sideloading is manually installing an Android .apk file — the package that makes up a specific app — instead of using the Google Play Store. It comes in handy when, for example, an Android app is available for phones but not tablets, or at least Chromebooks that act like tablets (I’m looking at you Apple Music since you don’t appear in the Play Store on my Pixel Slate!).
