Sphero Edu app (Windows vs. Chrome)

Updated 1 month ago by Kevin Sicner

On a Windows PC, you must run the Windows version of the Sphero Edu app from the Windows app store. It is not possible to run the Chrome version of the Sphero Edu app on a Windows PC even though you are able to download the Chrome version of the Sphero Edu app to your Windows PC. The Chrome version of the Sphero Edu app does not have an SDK to communicate with Windows Bluetooth.

You can distinguish between the Windows version of the Sphero Edu app and the Chrome version of the Sphero Edu app based on how the tile appears.

The Windows version of the Sphero Edu app has a solid blue background with the Sphero logo in white overlay:

The Chrome version of the Sphero Edu app shows the multicolor Sphero Edu logo on a white background. This version of the Sphero Edu app will not work on a Windows PC:

Sphero does not offer the Sphero Edu app in a downloadable .exe or .msi installation file right now. The only file that Sphero can provide is the .appx file that is distributed via the Windows app store. You can contact support@sphero.com for a link to download the .appx file if necessary. This is a solution if you are unable to access the Windows app store, but this is not recommended by Sphero's software development team as a great solution for mass distribution.
