San Francisco, June 8 : Tech giant Google has announced that the 'Minecraft: Bedrock Edition' game is now officially available on Chromebooks. Users can now purchase this game from the Google Play Store on Chromebook, which includes access to Minecraft Marketplace and the ability to play on Realms, the tech giant said in a blogpost on Wednesday.

"Minecraft is now available on compatible Chromebooks, including all Chromebooks launched in the last three years."
