How do I configure my Google Chrome Management console for Korbyt player software installation?

Korbyt player software only works on Chromebox devices that are enrolled in a Google Chrome Enterprise account and placed in Kiosk mode.

For clients wishing to manage their own Chromebox devices, Google provides information about Chrome Enterprise management here: https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/2941083?hl=en&ref_topic=4386908

RMG also provides Chrome Enterprise licenses for clients who purchase Chromeboxes from RMG. Please contact your RMG Client Relationship Manager for more details.

Note: If the locally added setting is made at the group level, then all devices enrolled into the group will download and install the Korbyt app automatically.


The following settings must also be configured in your Google Chrome Enterprise Management console.

Under Device Update Settings / Auto Update Settings

  • Set Allow Auto-updates
  • Restrict Google Chrome version to at most 75.*

If this is done at the group level, then all devices enrolled into this group will get these settings.
