I teach two LEGO robotics classes in middle school and in one of my classes I am using EV3 and in the other NXT. I was able to have these classes because of the Chromebook app, but the problem I am having is the EV3 Chromebook app is not recognizing the NXT's. Everywhere I read said they were compatible. Is there something I am missing?

    Do you have references/links for "everywhere I read". I have not seen anything that says NXT is compatible with the chromebook software. Oct 2 '17 at 19:39
  • Sorry, I was referring to the EV3 programing on our PC's before it was released on chromebooks. It was my assumption that the EV3 Chromebook app would also be compatible.

NXTs require a special USB driver, which is only available for Windows and Mac, so programming NXTs with official LEGO software will only work with those platforms. (EV3's use a generic USB HID driver.)

Furthermore, using NXTs via Bluetooth is not supported in any of the official LEGO EV3 software products.
