Troubleshooting
During enrollment, I can't get past the language screen
On that screen, check to see if a blue “halo” glow appears around the Language field. If not, connect a USB keyboard to your Chromebox for meetings device and press Ctrl + Alt + H. This puts the device in Chromebox for meetings mode and should let you proceed with enrollment.
My domain uses SSO. Do Chrome devices for meetings support this?
Chrome devices for meetings support SSO login during enrollment when SSO for Chrome devices is enabled. For instructions and more details, see Configure SAML Single Sign-On for Chrome devices

How do I re-pair the remote control with my Chromebox for meetings?
  1. Plug the dongle into any USB port on the Chromebox.
  2. Hold the remote control close to the dongle (ideally within 6 to 8 inches).
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Mute buttons simultaneously on the remote control for 4 to 5 seconds.
