April 13, 2022 - See bulletin, Update: Chrome App extended for use
What is happening?
As Google continues its plan to phase out Chrome Apps, Pearson can assure customers no impact to testing with the TestNav app for Chrome OS (Chromebooks) throughout the 2021-2022 calendar school year.
Google announced continued support for Chrome Apps on Chrome OS through June 2022, and Pearson will mirror that support.
The TestNav development team is working toward providing customers and students a testing solution to replace the app before that date.
What does this mean?
Customers using the Chrome TestNav app can continue to do so throughout the 2021-22 school year.
Pearson continues to work with Google to reestablish support for the Android TestNav app, which can run on Chromebooks.
The TestNav team also continues development efforts toward TestNav app improvements in advance of Google discontinuing Chrome App support.
What do I need to do (and how do I do it)?
Continue to monitor TestNav Online Support for most recent updates.
