How does your Chromebook do with the "Apreggios" experiment? I have a Toshiba Chromebook 2 2015 and the audio skips and freezes as I click around. For most of the experiments it is similarly poor. 
Music is for everyone. Play with simple experiments that let anyone, of any age, explore how music works.

Proof that #ChromeOSCanary is not without its quirks. Star this bug report if you want this bug to remain confined to Canary and not progress to any of the other channels.

Noticed after the last update in Beta 52 that my Dell 13 touch screen no longer responds. Is there a way to turn that function on/off?
Have performed the "hard reset" and powerwash with no effect.

I baby this CB so I'm not concerned with the hardware functionality, but was disconcerted to find this latest bug.
Rummaged about in ://flags but found nothing clearly indicated for Touch UI toggling. Moved back to Stable Channel... will wait.

Anybody running Smart Lock on a Toshiba CB 2 2014 Beta Channel with a Nexus 5X? Tried to set it up and the Chromebook can't find the phone.
Btw it runs perfect with the Samsung 303 and the Nexus.
I followed the support Guide step by step but doesn't work. Is Smart Lock broken in this Version of ChromeOS?

Stock Rom, unrooted, locked Bootloader. Smart Lock with my old Samsung and the Nexus worked. But no way with the Toshiba.

It's an OEM drive in some ChromeOS devices so I'm sure it will be fine

Does the Android spell checker work reliably when used in Chrome OS?

Spell check in Android proper is a mess, and I'm trying to find out if the situation is as bad when using Android apps in Chrome OS. There are two easy places to check: the body of an email when using the full-screen compose window in Inbox by Gmail (pictured here) and the new note creator in Google Keep. Can anyone confirm and post screenshots of it working/not working?

64 bit Cloudready still has graphical glitches
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYLyNmLYrPE

I got a tip that Cloudready had released a bug release for the 64bit version of the Chrome OS (Chromium) installer. I tested it and it still has the graphical glitches so I will stay with the 32bit version. #cloudready #chromeos #chromebook

Does anyone else use a Chromebook as their main/only machine, and use LastPass? I tried setting it up this morning, but the plugin doesn't work correctly and won't import from Chrome Password Manager. First it says I need to restart my browser to enable notifications. After restarting, it says I have to install the "Binary Component" - but it links to a linux installer. Seriously not impressed so far, but it gets 5* from the web store so hopefully this is a fixable problem..

This is a video of why I made the post earlier. Starting at https://youtu.be/jKsNvMCiAkQ?t=0m17s you can hear the audio glitch out and it gets worse as my mouse pointer freezes up as well.

This is a Toshiba Chromebook 2 (2015) and just a few days old. Just power washed backed to stable, with no extensions enabled. Does the same in guest mode and incognito.

If anybody has any idea what could cause this, please let me know.

My Chromebook 2 2015 (lesser of the two models) also can't run this experiment without the glitches. I'm running crouton, so for fun I tried it in 14.04 xfce on both Chrome browser and Firefox. Same thing, but Firefox can handle it better, the glitches don't happen nearly as much. Yeah, I think this thing takes a lot to run.

The worst thing about the Android apps on Chromebook is the partitioned emulator feel. For instance, Microsoft Word's Android app works but when it comes to saving to Google Drive, forget it. The only options are the emulated Android DCIM folder or perhaps a OneDrive account if you're lucky. This makes it virtually useless. 
There is zero crossover between Android and Chromebook OS so far (minus the ability for the apps to access the radios (Wi-Fi) and speakers/touchpads). The end result is comparable to BlueStacks or similar. This is why launchers won't work and also why certain apps are downloadable but pretty useless in this 'Android device emulator' programme on Chromebook.

+Robert Smith That's exactly what the old version of ARC tried to do: use NaCl to emulate the Android stack, but the result was something that was about as ineffective at running Android apps on Chrome OS as WINE is at running Windows apps on Linux: highly ineffective, to say the least.

Is there a way to see my Android phone screen on my Chromebook which is mirrored to a projector?

Google cast is not an option.....

Chromebook is connected to the projector via HDMI.

it took me quite a while to get cloud printing working on my daughter's chromebook.  (to be honest, i am not sure how i did it)  if i purchase a new chromebook, and use our existing logins will it transfer over, or will i have to set up the whole thing again?

Looking for assistance on chromebook issue... the "icons" for user login are invisible at login screen unless you mouse over it. In settings/manage other users, there is a check in the checkbox for show usernames and photos in the login screen. Attached is a short vid showing issue. Anyone have any ideas other than powerwash?

GApps: Enabling Play Store?

Does anyone know how (as an admin) I can enable Play store for users?
I am using GApps for Education (non-profit) and I do not have managed Chromebooks. So I cannot find a switch to throw in the admin console. The option is disabled (greyed out) in Chrome settings with the admin message appearing if I mouse over the GApps building icon - see below:

Does anyone know what key combinations to press in rder to get German accented characters please ?.
I have GB and US International keyboards enabled but can't seem to figure this out!. Have looked at a few videos on YouTube but this has been no help.
The keyboard map also does not seem to show which keys correspond to the accented character either...

Does anyone use MightyText on their phone/tablet/Chromebox or Chromebook? I've been using this app for about 2 years but it seems recently (last 2 months or so) it has become useless.

I use it to read and respond to texts from my PC instead of typing on Android phone. Lately the web app does not update with incoming or outgoing texts and it has basically lost its usefulness. I don't know if this is related to ChromeOS or not.

Turning off battery optimization for the MT app seems to have helped for me so far, but I am noticing that my battery drains more quickly. I wouldn't think it would have that much of an effect though.

If I recall correctly, the flags menu in Chrome OS has a touch input toggle.
chrome://flags - touch events
