Google periodically releases updates to Chrome OS. Occasionally, these updates can cause disruptions to existing functionality in the Kiosk application. We do work quickly to resolve issues though in some cases these updates can cause interruptions in functionality or result in modified app behavior.
Additionally, updates to the primary Kiosk application will also be upload periodically. We do our best to avoid breaking existing functionality but it is still possible for new bugs to be introduced or functionality changed for periods of time.
To avoid this issue we offer Update Protection for Kiosk Enterprise applications. This will lock the Chrome OS to a specific version, preventing issues with future updates. On devices which include a new version of Chrome OS pre-installed the app will continue to run. Essentially, it will only prevent updates AFTER the initial installation of the application.
To allow for testing of any application updates, a “dev” version of your Kiosk Enterprise application will be provided. This development version will include updates to the app and can be used for testing devices prior to publishing the update to production devices.
