Supported devices and browsers
Glean is a web-based application.
It does not require any download or install for use on a computer with a supported web browser.
It can be used on any Operating System, including Windows, Mac and Linux.
Glean can be used on any laptop, desktop or Chromebook with a supported web browser
Glean cannot currently be used on mobile devices (tablets or phones) - although we're working on it!
💻 Desktop web browsers:
Glean is currently tested and supported only on Google Chrome for use on a computer (laptop, desktop or Chromebook).
📵 Mobile web browsers:
Glean has been built with responsive web design to adapt to different screen sizes.
However, since our focus in this Beta phase is to validate the user experience of Glean on a laptop, we don't test extensively on mobile browsers.
We have therefore restricted access to Glean on mobile browsers, to avoid users having a less-than-satisfactory experience.
We are in the process of developing a fully-supported Glean mobile app, which we will recommend over mobile browser use when released.
Mobile app - coming soon(ish)!
Our Development Team is currently working on a mobile app.
We don't have a release date just yet, but we will be sure to make a big song and dance about it when it's ready!
So watch this space 👀
