When switching to a Chromebook, it is a common thing to come to terms with the fact that you won’t be able to play every game that you want to.

  1. Head to the settings for your Chromebook and look for the Google Play Store setting. Click “Turn On” to get the store running on your Chromebook.
  2. Head to the Roblox page on the Play Store and download it.
  3. Head to App Drawer and launch the game.

  2. Download the Roblox Android APK.
  3. Open Chrome, then Chrome Apps, and launch ARC Welder.

  6. Select Roblox APK and adjust settings how you want.
