Roblox is one of the most popular games in the world, but it’s currently limited to a handful of platforms. Chrome OS isn’t on the “supported” list, but thanks to the Google Play Store, Roblox is a few clicks away.
What Is Roblox?
Roblox is a massively multiplayer online (MMO) game creation platform where you can design, share, and play games with other players. The platform—which initially released in 2006—hosts games and virtual worlds in a variety of genres, such as simulations, puzzles, role-playing games, and racing games, to name a few. Each game in Roblox is called an “Obby,” short for an obstacle course.
With 90+ million active users per month and over 15 million games created, Roblox is quite possibly the most popular game you’ve never played. Roblox is available for Android, Windows, macOS, iOS, and Xbox.
Unfortunately, if you want to create your own Roblox Obby, Roblox Developer software is only available on Windows and Mac operating systems. You can, however, play it on your Chromebook—assuming it has access to the Android apps in the Google Play Store.
How to Play Roblox on a Chromebook
