Default So my 8 yr old son got a Chromebook

We got a chromebook for signing up with Fios. Samsung. Iím guessing a cheapie thing.

My 8 yr old wants it.

What can he do on it other than surf the net? Are there games? Can he do Roblox or Fortnite?

I do not have a Chromebook, but it is my understanding that a large percentage of android apps work on them. So games are definitely a yes, but support levels may vary.

Google says that Roblox works as long as everything is up to date and certain permissions are enabled, but that Fortnite takes some system tweaking and/or sideloading.

I don't know about Fortnite. Too old he is. If born on a federation planet he was, training started by now would be.
