Deploy Chrome Sign Builder

Chrome Sign Builder is a digital signage utility that lets you schedule and display content across your managed Chrome devices. With Chrome Sign Builder, you can use Chrome devices (such as Chromeboxes) as media players for digital signs.

Chrome Sign Builder gives you a preview of the content that will be shown on the digital signs. While you can download and install Chrome Sign Builder on one of the same Chrome devices where it will be deployed, the deployment process is simpler if you install it on another computer.

Before you begin

  • Download Chrome Sign Builder from the Chrome Web Store.

  • Configure the schedule to display your digital sign.

  • Move devices to the organizational units where you plan to configure Chrome Sign Builder to launch automatically.
