How to install Minecraft on a Chromebook in 2021 - Updated Tutorial


Today we are looking at how to install Minecraft on a Chromebook.  Please follow the video/audio guide as a tutorial where we explain the process step by step and use the commands below.

If you have any questions, please contact us via a YouTube comment and we would be happy to assist you!

This tutorial will only work on Chromebooks with an Intel or AMD CPU (with Linux Apps Support) and not those with an ARM64 architecture CPU.

To increase the performance of Minecraft you can turn on Hyper-Threading for your CPU and adjust the game's settings.  To turn 360 degrees use this guide, sadly Optifine, Forge, and Fabric don't work yet with this tutorial.

Please take note that you have to log in every time when you launch the game and skins can be glitchy.

Your .minecraft folder will be here in your Linux files .var/app/com.mojang.Minecraft/.minecraft

Please take note that only Minecraft 1.13 and newer works with this method, I hope that older versions will work again in the future.
