Veriato Vision supports activity capture at Chrome OS devices via a Chromebook agent. The agent is an expanded version of the browser extension used for Windows recording. Chrome OS devices should be set up for "enterprise" management on a Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) account, where you can configure an installation policy for the Veriato Agent.
The Chromebook Agent has been tested with Chrome OS 111.0.5563.118. and 112.0.5615.13.
From Support, request your enterprise URL to access the Chromebook Agent.
Each device should have a unique name identifying the owner/user.
Devices are enrolled in Chrome Enterprise (see below).
Users log in to Chrome and are managed in Chrome Enterprise.

How deployment and updates work
Deploy directly to ChromeOS devices, or manage agent deployment and updates through your Chrome Enterprise Admin Console.
- Veriato Vision automatically downloads new ChromeOS Agent versions.
The latest Chrome OS version will appear in Admin | Endpoint Agents in the console app.
- Chrome Enterprise policies automatically deploy the agent.
Once your Chrome OS devices and the Veriato Vision Chromebook Agent extension have been added to the Chrome Enterprise Admin Console (as described below), Chrome Enterprise policies automatically deploy the agent. To deploy to a new device, (a) enroll the device in Chrome Enterprise and (b) add the user to the relevant policy.
If you aren't managing Chrome OS devices as an enterprise on Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), set this up first. Once you have a Google Enterprise account, you can enroll and provision devices. See https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/1360534.
- Enroll devices in Enterprise management on setup.
When going through the initial setup on a Chrome OS device, press Ctrl+Alt+E at the sign-on screen; OR choose More options > Enterprise Enrollment.
- Log in with an account attached to the Chrome Enterprise domain.
By default, devices automatically enroll in the top-level organizational unit. You can set up a device enrollment policy that automatically enrolls each device in the organizational unit the device user belongs to. Consult the Chrome Enterprise Help for complete details.
