Minecraft is undoubtedly one of the most popular games in the world. After its release, Minecraft created a new kind of gaming genre called sandbox games where players could create, modify, or destroy their environment, and now there are a ton of sandbox games like Minecraft out there. Eventually, the game got developed for a multitude of platforms including Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, and more. However, even after these many years, the game has not been developed for Chrome OS. But there is nothing to worry as Chrome OS has now support for both Android and Linux. Now you can install and play Minecraft on your Chromebook without much friction. So, let’s go ahead and find out the steps for Minecraft installation on Chromebook.

Install and Play Minecraft on Chromebook

Before we begin, there are a few things that I want to clarify. You can run Minecraft on Chromebook without enabling Developer Mode in ChromeOS and installing Crouton. Also, you can get it running on the Stable channel. The only thing you should keep in mind is that you need Android or Linux support on your Chromebook.

As a result, school-issued Chromebooks will not able to run Minecraft unless your administrator has enabled Android or Linux support for your system. Keep in mind, recently Google brought the ability to use Linux apps even for school Chromebooks, but again, it will depend on your school administrator.

Install Minecraft: Education Edition in Chromebook

Minecraft has introduced an Education Edition for Chromebook users to promote creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving skills. The game is mainly aimed at students who want to play Minecraft on their Chromebooks. However, the game is available on the Play Store as an Android app which means you still have to contact your school administrator to enable Google Play from their side. With all that said, here is how to begin.

1. First off, open the Settings page and turn on Google Play Store. It will allow you to use the Play Store on your Chromebook and install Android apps.

2. Open the Play Store and search for Minecraft: Education Edition (Free) and install the game. That’s it.

3. Keep in mind, students have 10 free logins. Post that, you will have to buy a subscription from here. Apart from that, you will have to use your school account to log in to Minecraft.
