Levelling up gaming on Chromebooks

Gaming on Chromebooks

In the last few months, we've seen the amount of time people use gaming apps on their Chromebooks nearly triple. So, we’ve worked with our partners to expand our gaming offerings. We’re increasing the breadth of high quality games on the Google Play Store and are also enhancing Chromebooks’ gaming credentials with support for hugely popular titles on Stadia and through GeForce NOW.

A new premium gaming section on Google Play

The Google Play Store on Chromebooks now has a Premium gaming section that makes it easier for you to discover exciting games designed for Chromebook. These include favorites like Incredibox, Gamedev Tycoon and Bridge Constructor Portal.

Instantly play your favorite games with Stadia and GeForce NOW

Playing high quality video games on your Chromebook is now easier than ever. With Stadia, you can instantly stream and play games like PUBG, Destiny 2 and more on your Chromebook1 without waiting for installation, downloads or updates. Chromebook users also get three months of Stadia Pro free2,  giving you access to more than 20 popular titles to play. Visit chromebook.com/perks to redeem the offer and get playing.
