Note: this article covers an issue with using the Google Play store on some school networks. Most schools deploy the Makers Empire 3D app to their student Chromebooks via the Google Admin Console. Please see https://help.makersempire.com/en/articles/1267885-chromebook-set-up-for-makers-empire-3d for more information on the usual method.

If you have the Google Play store for Android apps enabled on your Chromebook, you can download Makers Empire 3D from the store.

Sometimes, school networks have proxy servers that interfere wth Google's app installation process. If this is affecting you, your app installations may be blocked or appear to freeze. This can be due to the proxy server blocking access to specific Google URLs.

If Google Play appears to be working but you are experiencing problems with the app download, try adding the following URLs to your proxy whitelist:

  • android.clients.google.com
  • gght.com
  • gvt1.com
  • play.google.com
  • play.googleapis.com
  • www.googleapis.com
  • googlevideo.com

Note these are not specific to Makers Empire 3D - many app installations from the Play Store would require access to these URLs.
