After a beta in March Google says playing Minecraft on Chromebooks is here. Chromebooks released since 2020 are supported but I found that older ones work too.

Code snippets suggest Microsoft is working testing Minecraft on a Chromebook for users who can’t or don’t want to use the limited Education edition.
After Minecraft disappeared for Chromebooks in the Google Play Store back in June, many wondered what happened. Now we know: Microsoft has made the Minecraft Education Edition compatible with Chromebooks, but you’ll need an Office 365 student account to play it.
