Access Google Classroom from smart TVs and gaming consoles

A solution to accessing Google Classroom is to use Smart TVs and game consoles (Xbox/PS4 etc.) as alternative devices.


Consoles and Smart TVs have in-built internet browsers and they can be used to access Google Classroom. Attaching a keyboard and mouse to a Smart TV or console does a reasonable job of replicating a laptop etc. You can access and interact with Google Classroom, see files in Drive and access Gmail. Editing documents does not appear to be possible at this time.


Many households may have a smart TV or console and these devices allow another way for children to access their remote learning.
