Chromebooks Get a Major Gaming Boost: Now You Can Play Minecraft Without Streaming

In our quest for more information, we reached out to Google for an official statement regarding the potential availability of other games natively on Chrome OS. We will update this story as soon as we receive an official response.

Some critics consider these gaming-focused Chromebooks a “scam,” while others believe they could be a promising innovation in the gaming industry. The initial disagreement stemmed from the notion that any Chromebook could be deemed a “gaming Chromebook” since gaming on Chromebooks relied on streaming services rather than native play.
