Remind Launches a Chrome App for Communicating With Students and Their Parents

Remind (formerly Remind 101) has launched a new app for Chromebook users. The new Remind Chrome app allows you to send and receive messages, attachments, and stamps from your Chromebook. Students and parents who install the Chrome app will be able to login with their Remind or Google accounts to access all their messages.

The Remind Chrome app will allow you to access your message feed and see which students and parents have viewed your attachments and stamped your messages. For those who haven't heard of Remind stamps before, stamps are emoticon feedback options for students and parents. One way that stamps can be used it to allow students and parents to give a thumbs-up that they have received a message.

Applications for Education
If your school has gone 1:1 with Chromebooks, the Remind Chrome app could provide the perfect way to send important reminders to your students. Students whose parents don't allow them to install an app on a personal device can be kept informed through the Remind Chrome app on their school-issued Chromebooks.
