Great game, just a few bugs... I played this game throught my entire time in Middle School. I had some great times with Minecraft Edu, but sadly, in the recent updates, the app stopped running on Chromebook. I'm having the same issues as other users in the loading screen. I launch the app, the legendary Mojang logo displays. But then the screen goes dark, almost black, and the game just freezes on that screen. I've checked and, my computer meets the requirements to run Minecraft, IDK whats up.

So, I downloaded it, and opened it. It went to the "Mojang" red screen like it normally does, but then the screen goes dark, almost black. I tried opening the screen to full screen, but it didn't work. And after that, it totally glitched up, and I had to X out of it. I've tried to delete it then download it back again, but It still didn't work. Please fix this! It gets annoying! Have a good day! <3

It's a great app and all, like basically every other review said, but I encountered a problem. After building something in my world, the application closed down. I thought nothing of it, until this morning where it would not open. I tried freeing up space, uninstalling then reinstalling, but nothing would work. (EDIT) I recently found out that It would not open on SCHOOL WIFI. I just thought I needed to clear that up.
