With the Playstore now available on Chromebooks does anyone know if you can play Minecraft PE on a Chromebook and how well it works?

    Or now that they have Linux apps support full Java Mincraft?

      You could always hack the Java version onto a Chromebook but most Chromebooks struggled to run it well since the Java version is much harder to run than the pocket edition. I haven't used Linux in years but will look into it.

    From my experience and what I have seen, no it doesn't work through the Play Store.

    I have an early Chromebook Flip and it has never been compatible.

    I believe you can sideload the APK if you switch to developer mode. You can also, I believe, run it through Crouton (A way to run Linux on Chromebooks). Eventually you should be able to run it through Crostini (Linux container support). However Crostini currently doesn't have audio or video acceleration and no one knows when that will come and what will work/not work.
