Feel free to choose on your own behalf – Android, IOS and even Chrome OS can be used with viewneo now.

Google developed the operating system Chrome OS based on a Linux core and the in-house developed browser Google Chrome. It is especially suitable to be used with devices (like Netbooks) that operate with a flash memory, due to its speed, simplicity and security. Chrome OS starts within seconds on these devices. The operating system established itself for many netbooks – so called Chromebooks . Also first hardware producers began to develop devices for this operating system in particular, so that they run smoothly as Digital Signage devices with the according software.

Digital Signage even works with a Windows browser

viewneo is available as a Chrome OS app since a few days. Just visit the Chrome Web Store to download the viewneo Player for Chrome OS for free. Even Windows 8 users can have a look at the app and test it without the need of a Netbook, Chromebook or any other Chrome OS device. The speciality is that the Chrome Browser simulates Googles newest operating system and real Chrome OS applications can be started regularly.

But running a DS-application in the browser is not the determined goal of transferring the software, which was running for Android, IOS and Samsung Smart Signage Displays (LFD) until now. Because there are already plenty of hardware producers whose development of devices is based on Chrome OS.

Maybe the DSE in Las Vegas will show what the future will bring. We, Adversign Media will also be present at the DSE to present our newest updates at the viewneo booth  again.

Get the free app for Chrome OS here: Chrome Store.

About Manfred

Currently not Available

Dear Valued viewneo Customer,

Last week, our Android mobile app was blocked from the Google Play store due to non-compliance with newly adopted policies for the Google Play Developer Distribution Agreement and Privacy Policy for malware. This was largely due to the our most recent feature updates that were customer-driven and deemed very important to a professional digital signage experience.

For example:

1. “Kiosk mode” disables the ability to exit a playlist once it begins. The device owner must enter a unique key code to exit the playlist. This features was designed specifically to prevent in-store customers or non-device owner from pausing, exiting, or otherwise interrupting a playlist.

2 . The current viewneo Player App completes software updates in the background once available. Avoiding onscreen notifications and the need for users to manually confirm and complete software updates has been a very important product feature.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may be currently experiencing. Our team is working as fast as possible to urgently produce an updated version of our Android app that complies with all of the new Google Play store developer policies.

Please use the link below to access a manual installation of the viewneo Player App as well as instructions. Should you have additional questions, please feel free contact us at any time.
