    Applications and Extensions for Chrome Devices and Browser

     

    Overview

    • TCS students and employees utilize a variety of Chrome web applications and extensions to provide tools and enhancements in a variety of digital learning and organizational resources. These are found in the Chrome Web Store
    • TCS has also launched Android apps found in Google’s Play Store. 
    • For all applications and extensions, TCS curates the collection available to users through whitelisting. If you would like to request that an application or extension be whitelisted, submit a tech support request that includes the name, URL, and intended use. These requests will be evaluated to check their security and appropriateness for instructional or organizational use. 
    • In the summer of 2021, Chrome OS will no longer support Chrome web applications. Extensions will not be affected and will continue to work. In advance of that deadline, TCS will migrate from Chrome web apps to Android apps. 

     

    Android Apps on Chrome Devices

    • TCS currently has a small collection of Android apps that can be found on Chrome devices by clicking the Play Store icon found at the bottom of the screen or in the app collection. 
    • From the collection that appears, select the app you want to install and click the green Install button. This adds an application to your account. Applications take up memory, and every time you log into the device it can take a minute or two for your applications to install. For these reasons, users may want to limit the number of applications they add.
