The answer to the question is yes, players can play the Android version of Roblox on their Chromebooks. It is one of the most popular sandbox games globally, with billions of players visiting the platform because it provides various games.

Roblox was basically targeted at the younger generation because these players fancy video games like no one else. They have a soft spot for their gaming abilities and skills, which they are proud of.

Gamers can play these titles on either mobile, PC, Xbox, or even their Chromebook if it supports Android applications and enables the Google Play Store.

Chromebooks that support Android apps

To play Roblox on a Chromebook, users must first install the Android version of the app via the Google Play Store. Before downloading, they must ensure their Chromebook runs the Android app and enables the Google Play Store.

This is because not all Chromebooks support Android apps, i.e., mostly the old ones. New Chromebooks have the features to download Android apps, but it will be better to check.


Since most gamers are young and still in schools and colleges, they might have the Chromebooks issued by their schools. Such devices are managed by the school management and usually block access to the Google Play Store.

As the access is denied and players can’t open Google Play Store through their school Chromebook, unfortunately, they can’t play any Roblox games on the Chromebook.

Those who have the Chromebook version released in or after 2017 have the feature to run Android apps.
