    This is an even bigger problem for people with whose Chromebooks are managed through Family Link. Family Link doesn't allow sideloading of Android apps (even though it works on Android devices).

    There is a tremendous influx of kids using chromebooks for school at home now, and many (like mine) are using Google's Family Link.  Unfortunately, while regular chromebook users can often just install and run the Linux version of Minecraft via the chromebook's experimental Linux support, child accounts managed by Family Link have this capability disabled. They can, however, still install approved Android apps.  However, the Minecraft Android app isn't available in the Play store for Chromebooks.  

    Allowing the existing Linux app to be published to Chromebooks would unlock a lot potential new Minecraft users, and make existing ones very happy as well.  Now is the best possible time to bring Minecraft support to Chromebooks!

    I have an HP Chromebook 11 G5. I can still play Minecraft PE on it. I just had to go into dev mode and download the apk.

     

    It's that simple.

    Same here, and I managed to sideload the apk, but with the latest release that doesn't work anymore. So no more realms :(

    Come on Mojang, by just updating the mouse controlls and clicking a box you can get a lot of sales from chromebooks and you'll also make a lot of us happy. This is an old post yet people keep voting and commenting wich shows that they still beileve that you'll flip the switch and let us play on our chromebooks again.

    Realment és una llàstima que no es pugui jugar a Minecraft amb el chromebook, les dificultats que m'estic trobant no em permeten utilitzar aquest programa a nivell educatiu perquè tots els meus alumnes disposen de Chromebook.

    L'utilització de chromebooks en el mon educatiu és una realitat amb cada cop amb més implantació.

    Siusplau, obriu aquesta possibilitat de forma amigable.

    It’s because Minecraft is owned by Microsoft and chromebooks (chrome OS) are their competition which is owned by Google. If they allowed minecraft on chromebooks it would be one more reason NOT to buy a windows laptop or computer. Especially when they’re trying to get into the chromebook space with their surface pro x.

    All you need to do to get Minecraft Bedrock Edition on Chrome OS is to make the version in the Play Store support mouse and keyboard. Shouldn't be hard since the game (which is the exact same game) supports Mouse/Keyboard, Touch, and Controller on Windows. Also, while you're at it, then people can also use mouse and keyboard on mobile too, which would be cool for things like Samsung DEX.

    I have tried everything on my specific (c330 lenovo chromebook) to try and get minecraft linux running, but I am on an arm64 mediatek proccesor so none of those things work. If you can't get minecraft bedrock, at least make a .deb for arm64

    They should also make it available for LifeBooks as well for people who can't get a professional laptop

    Okay this would do certain things to competition with Google but you want this game to be accessible right then make it.

    Chromebook Capability Should Be A Thing 2.6 Million U.S. Citizens Use Chromebook And With Minecraft Costing 30$ USD That's 78 Million Dollars For Someone To Be Earning This Could Go Up As A Missed Opportunity If You Ask Me Also I Think Chromebooks Should Be A Java And Without The F-5 Or F-3 Maybe Combining Buttons Will Give Your Cords Or Directions I Know Microsoft Made Bedrock And I Know I Cant Always Be The Same As In Terms Of Coding I Know That C++ And Java Are Different I'm Just Saying We Should Have The Chromebooks Be As Similar To Java As We Can And Or The Parity We Should Do . Thank You

    this would be a good thing considering minecraft is an educational game and a lot of schools use chromebooks which of course runs on chromeOS

    everyone we got education edition on Chromebook so it is likely to happen to bedrock as well. https://minecrafteducation.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360071271771-Minecraft-Education-Chromebook-Beta-Version-1-14-Mega-feedback-thread

    This is not competition Android is Google so Mojang have you read this because it you don't add Minecraft for chromeOS you should remove it from Android because they both are google.

    It's just a fact that most kids are using Chromebooks now. The fact that Minecraft: Education Edition is now available on the Play Store for Chromebooks shows that Microsoft acknowledges this. Unfortunately, our school doesn't have Office 365 Education accounts and that is NOT going to change because we are Google everything. Please just allow Play Store Minecraft PE on Chromebooks. I don't care if you even make it a separate app that requires a separate purchase from the regular Android version. Please just take my money!

     

    Before anyone says to buy the Java version and use Crostini, I can't do that with a Family Link managed account.

    Also make it so it can distinguish between right/left click and have the mouse move the screen without holding the left button.

    Just make the Android app available on the Google Play store with a few tweaks, or port it to Linux since Chromebooks can run Linux apps as well.

    I don't know how Mojang doesn't see a market here. Lots of kids first "laptops" are Chromebooks so there should be a huge market for a normal (non education) Chrome OS edition.

    I am disappointed that Mojang made the decision to de-list Minecraft from the Play Store for Chromebooks. I recently bought the amazing Lenovo Chromebook Duet, a detachable which beats absolutely every Android tablet at this price point. Having compatibility with Android Apps and the Google Play Store, I was disappointed to hear that Minecraft, which was compatible at one point with Chromebooks via Android functionality, has had said compatibility removed without notice, and without an explanation.

    Seriously, Minecraft education edition works on Chromebooks. Why not bedrock anymore? This is ridiculous, especially since it works on my less powerful Android phone. Come on!

    I am able to run Minecraft on my Chromebook by sideloading from my phone. That's great for me, but my daughter is logged in though a Family Link child account which doesn't allow sideloading on Chromebooks (It does allow sideloading on Android devices).
