What is Chrome Gopher Premium?

Chrome Gopher Premium (as opposed to Basic) includes access to Gopher Buddy.

The Gopher Buddy Chrome Extension partners with the Chrome Gopher Add-on to boost your fleet’s OS health and offers high-resolution usage history and network IP reporting on Chrome devices, as well as a handy way for students and staff to access key device info.

Gopher Buddy:

  1. Extends the reporting powers of Chrome Gopher to include user sessions that capture username, local & public IP address, start time, and session duration in minutes.
  2. Gives logged-in G Suite users permission-based access to recent session info and device metadata like SN and Asset ID from the logged-in context.
  3. Nudges users to help prevent Chrome devices from falling more than 3 version behind in their OS updates.
