How to Play Roblox on a Chromebook

Roblox is one of the most popular games in the last decade. It is an online gaming platform full of hundreds of different games, character customization, and more. The game is free to play but there are some in-game purchases like Robux, the game’s currency. But not everyone has a Windows PC. Here is how you can play Roblox on your Chromebook.

Roblox gameplay

Google Play Store

If your Chromebook has the Google Play Store, you can install Roblox from there.

  1. Open the Google Play Store.
  2. Locate the Roblox page. You can do this by either finding it on the main games page or by clicking on the search icon and typing it in.
  3. Click the Install button.
  4. Once the installation is complete, select Open.


For players who cannot run the Google Play Store on their Chromebook, you can run Roblox on Now.gg. Unlike most ways to play Roblox, this one requires you to play in the internet browser. To use this method you may have to watch a few ads before the game starts.

  1. Go to Now.gg
  2. Search for Roblox
  3. Log in or create an account
  4. Start playing

Roblox FAQ

What if I can’t find the Google Play Store?

If you can’t find it, not all hope is lost. Go in to your Settings and make sure Google Play Store is enabled under the Apps section. You will need to accept the terms of service. If you don’t see the option to turn it on, try updating your Chromebook and then trying again. If that still doesn’t work, unfortunately not all Chromebooks have access to the Google Play Store. It is more likely to be on Chromebooks released in the last few years.

Why can’t I play Roblox on a school or public computer?

School networks often block access to games, sites, and apps that may distract students from their studies. Some examples of commonly blocked sites are YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, and Roblox.

How can I earn Robux?

Robux can be bought with real-life money but not everyone can afford to keep up with the virtual trends. Some ways to earn Robux can include selling items, playing games, and creating your own games.
