Users who move from a Windows PC to a Chromebook find it harder to accept that they can no longer play their favorite games on this new platform. However, things have changed dramatically in the past few years and now you can play the majority of Windows games either through Steam or Play Store. Recently, we covered how to play Minecraft on Chromebook and this time we bring you how to run Roblox on your machine. You can easily install and play Roblox on Chromebook and without any hacks and tweaks. So without further delay, let’s jump to the steps.

4. In my testing, there were some graphics issues having black patches at intermittent intervals. However, after enabling GPU acceleration from Chrome Flags, the effect was minimized. You can also try the same method on your Chromebook. Other than that, if your Chromebook has an ARM-based processor then Roblox would perform pretty well since you are running an Android app.

5. In case, your Chromebook does not have Play Store support, you can use an app called ARC Welder to install Android APKs directly. For example, we have written a guide to run Kodi on unsupported Chromebooks, so follow that guide on similar lines and you will be able to play Roblox on your Chromebook as well. You can find the Android APK for Roblox from here.

  1. The app way works I don’t have a problem don’t do the apk way you might be installing a virus I just deal with this.

  2. I have been playing roblox on a chromebook for some time now. I am a developer who generally uses a PC and have found it very hard to adapt onto chromebook. You have to use ‘The Play Store’ which generally is used on mobile apps. Due to this, Roblox shows the mobile version which can get very annoying. The first person view is also very messed up and, when looking down, you will eventually reach the bottom where the apps come up. This makes games like asenal and other games that use first person to be unplayable. There is another mouse glitch which makes it so the cursor is frozen or almost frozen. The graphics are also very low. When playing games such as murder mystery, a pop up comes up saying whether your on tablet or phone, neither which I am on. Lag is also a big problem and makes it so that bigger games may not work as intended. As a developer, I need to use Roblox Studio for my work which I can not access due to it being only available on things like the windows store. I would like to know if these things have happened to other people and if anybdy else has a solution!
