The good news is that Microsoft is introducing Minecraft to Google’s Chrome OS if you’ve ever wanted to play it on a Chromebook.
According to a report from Minecraft, Microsoft’s Mojang Studios has just made Minecraft: Bedrock Edition early access, which is now accessible for Chromebooks. It has multiplayer across devices, access to the Minecraft Marketplace, and Realms play capabilities.
You’ll need to check the Google Play Store to see if Minecraft is accessible for you because it is in early access, which means that only specific Chromebook devices that fulfill the minimal requirements will receive the chance to buy Minecraft in this initial stage.
If you already buy Minecraft for Android, it costs $13.00, and a bundle that includes both the Android and Chromebook versions costs $19.99 for new buyers.
Check here to discover if your Chromebook is part of the early access launch.
The following are the prerequisites for using Minecraft on Chromebooks:
ChromeOS 111 (64-bit)
Celeron N4500, Intel i3-7130U, Mediatek MT8183, Qualcomm SC7180, or a similar processor;
4GB RAM or more
Since Microsoft gathers testing data from early access users, not all of the most recent features and add-on material are now available in Minecraft for Chromebooks; however, they will be available in the future.
According to a report from Minecraft, the complete version of the game for Chromebooks will include the update once it has been made available to more Chromebook users, expanding the number of devices on which it can be played.
OpenAI GPT is Coming to LinkedIn to Streamline Job Posting and Profile Optimization

GitHub Releases an Open Source Program (OSPO) Offices Blueprint
GitHub has published its own Guideless framework for setting up an open-source program office (OSPO).
GitHub-OSPO is for companies looking to create their first OSPO, and its repository contains everything from regulations governing contributor license agreements (CLA) to instructions on archiving repositories. The aim is to help small-scale open-source projects develop into something more significant and stay organized.
Many companies also choose to open source their own internal initiatives to promote industry support and community involvement. Yet, companies wishing to keep up with their licensing, compliance, security, and open source componentry obligations will immediately recognize the significant problems they face. And for this reason, the OSPO is becoming an essential component of the modern organization.
While most significant large corporations, such as Microsoft and Spotify, have dedicated OSPOs, there has been a recent uptick in firms of all sizes replicating them. Almost every component of the current technology stack, from servers and supercomputers to cloud computing and databases, interacts with open-source software.
Currently, 30% of Fortune 100 companies have an OSPO in place, according to the most recent Octoverse study by GitHub. And by making its own internal policies and tools available as an example for others to follow, GitHub is seeking to support this increase in OSPO interest.
Microsoft Released the Edge Web Browser with AI Chatbot
Microsoft unveiled the stable version of Edge, its web browser, along with a new Bing AI chatbot in a sidebar, concurrently with the release of OpenAI’s GPT-4.
It was initially unveiled at Microsoft’s AI press conference in February 2023 and was only initially accessible through developer versions of Edge; however, it is now becoming available through stable versions of Microsoft Edge on both Windows and macOS.
When you click on the large Bing button in the upper left corner of Edge, a new sidebar with an AI-powered chatbot will show up. The compose option lets you choose from a number of tones to generate text for blog posts, emails, bulleted lists, and more. You may use the compose option to generate and summarise articles, compare items on a webpage, and ask questions.
This new Bing sidebar in Edge offers a glimpse of the potential direction Microsoft may take its AI features for Windows, Office, and other products. Recently, Google revealed its intentions to integrate ChatGPT-like AI into Gmail and Google Documents, enabling Google Workspace users to automatically create emails, papers, and other things.
The focus of Thursday’s Microsoft event will probably be on how its ChatGPT-like AI will function in Office programs like Teams, Word, and Outlook. Last month, Microsoft introduced a comparable new generative Copilot AI experience that uses the Azure OpenAI Service to autonomously generate sales letters in Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Viva Sales.
