I believe all the Chromebooks have Intel chips. This includes the 2016+ 
models with Android app compatibility. The rollout of the compatibility 
layer to Chromebooks is slow but there's an impressive list of planned 
(as in don't hold your breath) hardware here:

...and as noted here,

"Also, some apps don’t work with Chromebooks, so you won’t be able to 
download them."
