For anybody reading this in 2021, Termux has deprecated the Play Store version of the app, and now they say to install from the F-Droid app store. Unfortunately, on ChromeOS in order to sideload F-Droid you need to enable dev mode, defeating the benefit of Termux.

You can keep using the old version of Termux from the Play Store, but it won't get updates; you'll get messages about the pkg download mirrors being offline (which is easy to workaround). But who knows what breaks next?
