The Acer C7 Chromebook is a really nice, simple computing device and I’m enjoying it quite a bit. One thing that was a bit aggravating was that it didn’t support Bluetooth, whereas other Chromebooks like the Samsung ARM did support it. It was rumored to be a software issue, and sure enough, with the latest beta (30.0.1599.30) Bluetooth is enabled! I’ve successfully paired it with a mouse and a speaker and it works quite well. However, this update seems to have broken the Citrix Receiver app. Oh well, easy come, easy go 😉
Now looking forward to the next update and a fix for the Citrix Receiver!
It took nearly two months, but the Citrix issues were finally resolved in the beta channel on version 31.0.1650.41. It was actually fixed earlier in the stable channel. Lots of information about what really happened in the Chromium forum, at this link: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=304319
What wireless Bluetooth mouse are you using that works? Looking online but don’t want to buy one if it’s not guaranteed to work.
I used an Apple Magic Mouse, since that’s what I had lying around…worked just fine…
Apple Magic Trackpad works well also.
I have an acer C710 chromebook,have just updated it today 23may but still no bluetooth for me.dont no alot bout this stuff but basically just want to file transfer (music,photos etc).iam on the stable channel but thats all i know.can anyone help! Should i expect an update that will allow me to use bluetooth or is there somthing ive missd or need to do to enable it.
Paula, you need to turn on Bluetooth in the settings. However, it doesn’t do file xfer AFAIK, just allows peripherals like mice, trackpads, speakers and headsets to work…
