If you’re confused as to why something which is working well on your Canvas site, isn’t working on the Student App, Google Chrome gives you a great way to find out what’s going wrong with its Remote Debugging Android Devices
Annoyingly, it’s not quite as easy as one would hope on a Galaxy S7 Edge or, by the sounds of it, any Samsung device, on Windows 10 anyway.
Extra steps required above what’s on the page above, for me anyway, were:
- Enabling USB Debugging. On A Galaxy S7, to turn developer mode on, you have to go to About phone | Software info then tap Build number 7 times(!?). You can then access the Developer options (at bottom of Settings) to switch on USB Debugging.
- On Windows 10, to even get the Device to be recognised, you need to:
- download and install the Android USB Driver for Windows:
- change the USB Configuration (Developer options > Select USB Configuration), rather curiously, to ‘Audio Source’ (thanks to @Studocwho)
If you have a Mac available, you don’t seem to need to bother with Step 2 above – it just works!
