We are thrilled to announce that Constant Therapy is now available on Chromebooks! Not heard of a Chromebook before? Not sure how to get started with Constant Therapy using a Chromebook? Well, you have come to the right place – read on to learn all about this cost-effective, versatile device and how to use it to complete your speech, language, and cognitive exercises anytime, anywhere!
If you have not heard of a Chromebook, you are not alone! Chromebooks are a low-cost, easy-to-use alternative to traditional laptops. More advantages include:
Chromebooks use the Google apps you may be familiar with, especially if you use Chrome to browse the Internet on another computer. Chromebooks usually have a trackpad mouse and a keyboard, and some even have a touchscreen. A variety of computer manufacturers make them, including brands like HP, Dell, Lenovo, or Samsung. You can buy them online from places like Amazon, or from stores like Walmart or Best Buy.
Chromebooks range quite a bit in price, but for the purposes of using Constant Therapy, you generally do not need a terribly fancy one. To run Constant Therapy on a Chromebook, you need a Chromebook built after 2019. If you have a Chromebook that was made before 2019, you can check this list to see if your Chromebook might support Android apps. You can also search on your Chromebook to see if you can find and open the Google Play store. If you need a little extra help, always feel free to reach out to our Support Team at 1-888-233-1399 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Generally speaking, you are able to open the Google Play store on your Chromebook, you will be able to download Android apps like Constant Therapy from the Google Play store!
For instructions on how to set up your Chromebook, check out this step-by-step guide by The Tech Helper.
First, you need to get the Constant Therapy app onto your Chromebook. Here’s how:
If you already have a Constant Therapy account that you created on our website, that your clinician gave you, or that you have used on other devices, you can go ahead and log in with your username and password. If you have not created an account yet, you can do that right from the app! The app will guide you through the steps to create your own, customized exercise plan based on your goals and individual profile.
FUN FACT: Did you know that you can use Constant Therapy on multiple devices? The app will pick up right where you left off on your old device. You can only be logged in on one device at a time though, so the app will automatically log you out of any other devices when you log in on a new device. If you forget your password, no worries! Use our easy password reset feature or reach out to our support team at 1-888-233-1399 or email@example.com for help!
1. Pin Constant Therapy to your start button (it’s super easy to do). That way it will always be there when you need it. At the bottom of your screen, find the “CT” icon. Press the “ALT” key, which is on the bottom left of your keyboard, and then tap the Constant Therapy icon. Then click “Pin” and you’re ready to go!
2. Try not to let your device drop below 20% power. Running apps like Constant Therapy takes power, so if you see your battery power running low, plug your Chromebook in – it will charge while you continue to use it! If your battery drops below a certain point, you may find that some features within the app will not work as expected.
As always, if you get stuck along the way feel free to call our friendly Support Team at 1-888-233-1399 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
