How do I install the regular, sans-serif version (not the monospace version) of Google's Roboto font on Ubuntu?

There's a question about Roboto Mono but my question is about Roboto, not the monospace version.

    @guiverc Roboto Mono and Roboto are different fonts with diferent installation procedures. I think fonts-roboto doesn't come with Roboto Mono, but I haven't actually checked. – Boris Sep 7 at 3:19

    @guiverc someone complained that my answer there is technically not an answer (which is true, the question asks about Mono, and apt install fonts-roboto won't install Mono, I just checked) so I wanted to move my answer to its own question to be more correct. – Boris Sep 7 at 3:22
sudo apt install fonts-roboto

There's also fonts-noto which is also from Google and has way more characters
