Google Classroom

Xbox and Playstation

We wanted to let you know that 'Google Classroom' can be opened on Xbox and Playstation. There isn’t an app that the students can add to their consoles. Instead, they are going to have to use the built-in browsers that come on the two devices. On Xbox, it is Microsoft Edge. On Playstation, it is the “www” browser. Your students will probably know how to find the browsers on their consoles, but if not, each one has a search function they can access on the home screen.

Once the browser has been opened:

  1. Type in classroom.google.com in the URL bar.
  2. A prompt for a Google account will appear.
  3. Type in your school email and password – it doesn’t end in google.com and that is ok!
  4. The Classroom home screen will open up.

We thought this would be useful for families who are struggling to access work due to lack of suitable devices.
