Minecraft Education on Chromebook

Hello everyone, you can download Minecraft education edition for Chromebook and experience the future of education. As many of you have noticed some sort of trend by now, but gaming and education is and have always been tangled industries, like brother and sister, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. By the way, we now have a list of Chromebooks that support Android apps where you can double check to see if your Chromebook can run Android apps, even if you don’t find your Chromebook on that list, as long as it was released in 2017 or later, it most likely can run Android apps from the Google play store thus meaning it can run Minecraft Education edition without issues.

  3. After downloading Minecraft Education, launch it from the Launcher (app drawer) or the shelf (taskbar). Click the Minecraft Education icon to start using the app.

But as more and more of are getting used to being more indoors than outdoors, gaming has continued to boom despite everything else going on around the world and with that, education took a bit of a slip in terms of offline attendance etc because of Covid but with apps like Minecraft education, education and gaming are once again brought together to cure our boredom while at the same time, teaching us some valuable lessons in the name of education. With that said, I was able to try out Minecraft education by Microsoft on my somewhat new Lenovo C330 Chromebook that I have been using as my backup Chromebook for the past three months or so and I love it. It is touchscreen enabled which these days is very much necessary when it comes to gaming on Chromebooks. Let us know in the comments what you think about this app and if it something you think your school, university or company might find useful.

  • I do have to remind you, you will need a Microsoft 365 account eventually after the free trial period.
  • Does Minecraft Education run on Chromebook? Yes it does.
