Roblox is an incredibly popular game, but can you play it on Chromebook as well? In this article, I’ll share exactly what the possibilities are for playing Roblox on Chromebook. Step by step, I’ll explain how to install the game and get it running. All this and much more, you can read in this Roblox Chromebook guide.

Roblox: incredibly popular game

Roblox, officially launched in 2006, is an extremely popular game, especially among youthful players. It is a so-called MMO or a Massively Multiplayer Online. It allows thousands of players (and often many more) from all over the world to play together in an online world.

That’s exactly what Roblox is: a game where you can play in virtual worlds or create them yourself. In these worlds, you can do many things: whether it’s decorating your house, competing with other players or competing against other players.

Basically Roblox can be played for free, but it’s also possible to buy virtual in-game currency which is called Robux. With Euros or Dollars, you are able to purchase Robux which you can use in the game to acquire new outfits, buildings, cars and much more.

Let me give you an idea of the popularity of Roblox; by 2022, just under 45 million people will be playing the game every day. Those are some significant numbers. Therefore, it’s not surprising that people wish to know if Roblox also runs on a Chromebook.

Roblox extension

Besides the app that can be used on Chromebook, it’s also a possibility to use a Roblox extension in the Chrome browser. By making use of a Roblox extension, you are able to add additional options to the game.

Please note that Roblox cannot be played through the browser. So the extension provides additional features, but does not allow you to play the game in Chrome.

The Roblox extension enables you to unlock additional features, such as:

However, there are many more features available. One of the most popular extensions is Roblox+ which adds as many as 30 features.

Learn more about the Roblox+ extension here. If you are interested in seeing all the options of the game (browser), you can do so via this link, but only when you are logged in with your Roblox account.

Bear in mind that if you feel like playing Roblox on Chromebook, the extension is useless. As you could read earlier in this article, you really need the app for that.
