Hey guys,

Google chat just got PWA and we are trying to deploy it to Chromebooks and it's failing spectacularly.

Currently https://chat.google.com is launching in Webb with a grey box in the shelf. It's terrible.

 

Anyone got any tips?

Got feedback from Google finally:

  1. In your Google Admin console (at admin.google.com)...
  2. Go to 'Devices' > 'Chrome' 
  3. Click Apps & extensions
  4. Point to 'Add' and click on 'Add by URL' 
  5. In the URL field, enter https://mail.google.com/chat/download 
    Important: Enter the URL exactly as it appears above.

  6. From the Open website in list, select Separate window.
  7. Click Save.

@Jesse mentioned this on a separate chat: “You still have to go to chrome://apps in order to set it up.” Does that help?

If need to implement manual work arounds to deploy core Google services (Chat) on Googles (ChromeOS) devices, then the entire point of “going Google” just died in front of me.
