If your Chromebook doesn’t have Google Play Store support, then you’ll need to use another application called ARC Welder to play Roblox.

Put this in an existing folder you won’t delete so you can always play Roblox once it’s installed. After you’ve saved this APK, you can now select the Roblox APK from within it when viewing it in your folders and load Roblox on your Chromebook. This will allow you to browse games and play them as you would using any other version of the game.
