Chrome OS: Chromebook, Chromebit devices

As of 2018 Jan, Chrome OS devices are not considered to be fully supported by the DA WebEx team. After testing, we have found "some" Chrome OS devices that will function as "Participants" only with no administrative capabilities (e.g. Host/Presenter features are not available). Other devices have failed to fully connect to a WebEx meeting.

Note: There is a Chrome OS app available from the Chrome Store, but, we have had limited success in running it. Our recommendation, at this time, is to use an alternative device.
