Now you can play the education edition of Minecraft on Chromebooks. 

Just in time for many students to virtually head back to school, Microsoft is bringing the education edition of its blocky video game Minecraft to Chromebooks. Available Monday, Minecraft: Education Edition for Chromebook includes the same features as the Windows, iPad and Mac versions of the game, including multiplayer across platforms, the company said. The education-focused version of the game is meant to our editors’ picks of the most important stories of the day.

In addition to coming to Chromebooks, Microsoft said the latest update to the game includes new STEM lessons and “a special Minecraft world developed with the American Beekeeping Federation’s Kids and Bees program.”Minecraft: Education Edition for Chromebook requires a Microsoft account to log in — the game is licensed by schools through Microsoft 365 for Education — but the company said it’s working on letting users log in with a Google account as well.
