I have been using this app for almost 2 years. It works smoothly naman pero these past few months I can't turn in my tasks and can't see the attached link/s in every announcement. I'm disappointed. Kung kailan deadline saka pag mag o-occur yung ganito. Experienced this already 2 times. Please please please fix this google team. As a student, nakakadagdag stress pa po ito.
I am not able to open the files attached by my teachers. It's not getting opened even after I uninstalled the app and reinstalled. The problem is same.
Very helpful when on the road, or when other items (laptops, chromebooks, ipads, etc.) Are unable to be used.
I am pass on my deadline! because of this, super infuriating because the video I want to upload is always loading, null, failed. I've been uploading it in the morning till evening, even now 1 am early in the morning still wont sent. *Edit: I'm still having the same problem and worse is that I cannot see the videos I uploaded, loading it wont. What the hell
Files don’t save offline, it just keeps saying ’Saving files’ and it shows a Google Drive notification saying ’Syncing items’ that won’t go away since the files don’t really save.
My experience in this is so bad, because I can't post my work using a link it say "Connection is slow try again" but my speed of my internet was Good and stable on 20ms , why I can't share the link of Google Drive on my subject using a link?... I want you to fix this issue because me as a student I'm also just using phone, and I can't even buy expensive laptop,, this app is the worse that I ever use on this online distance learning.....
Thanks for adding the notification tab :) Google just removed it earlier for no reason!! Edit : now, Google removed another feature :- the ability to edit pdfs with a stylus in the app Itself
It's easy to use for learning,I really like it,the only thing I don't like about this app is just it doesn't have dark mode,my eyes always hurt Everytime I open it...so I really hope the developer can add it someday
Its a great app but lately, i have trouble opening the students work and had to reset my phone three times.
It is WILD how slow this app is. Photos take like 45 seconds to load. Is it 1997? How is Google OK with putting its name on a product this bad? EDIT (response to the response): I'm not attaching anything. Simply trying to view photos someone else attached. It should not take this long for photos to load.
What happened? The last months, my experience on this app has always been great. But since last week, I am no longer receiving notifications if there are any new requirements and announcements that my professors posted. Everytime I refresh the app, it always says the date where I first downloaded it which is September 21, 2019. So I always open my laptop to see if there are any new announcements or requirements posted and its kind of a trouble for me when I don't have my laptop Please fix this.
This app is wonderful but suddenly Why we are not able to open pdf files and images on googleclassroom on phones..?? Only word files are opening in phone...please fix this problem..please reply any solution for this.
This googleclassroomapp works great but some problem is arising..that the pdf files and images are not opening in this...these pdfs and images are opening in other apps like whatsapp..and drive but not in googleclassroom app in phone....in laptop the googleclassroom is working fine but in phones its creating problem wth previewing file my all friends and teachers are having the same problem..please try to fix that ASAP as its creating very much problem and please reply any solution for this..
So far everything I have tried to do on the app has not actually worked. Either it's buggy and broken or the UI is terrible and not giving me the information I need to fix the issues
Can't preview attached file. I've tried uninstallng and installing the app and was able to view files. Thanks!
Makes my education much easier! Just by relaxing at home I can do my homework! Thank you google for this great app. Hope you come up with new amazing ideas!
I like the fact that it's simple and clean. It's been a great holding space for materials shared with my class. It's unfortunate that formatting (boldface, italics, bullet points) doesn't hold up when you transition from laptop to phone. All of those elements which make materials easily organized and readable just disappear.
The current feedback rewrite the student's work. 🤯 please fix it. Please bring back the pdf-feedback-mode. When I click the photos of all of my student work, the Google Classrom notifies that it is unable to preview. I can open it by clicking the OPEN WITH on the 3-button on the top left. Then, i can open the photo and markup with limited tools. Before this situation happened, I could use various brush size and colors. Now I don’t have anymore those options.
There's so many issues I am experiencing while using Google classroom. First is, I can't see what my teacher posted or the announcement she/he posted in google classroom it wont load even tho my signal is fine and I keep refreshing it. Second is, I can't turn in my answers like I keep tapping it and it won't turn in, and if I tap the turn in it will change into private comment and so it won't turn in. I hope y'all fix this I'm having a lot of problems and it's affecting my performance
I am also having an issue with opening what the teachers post. I see the thumbnail then when I click on it it says open with and nothing has to do with Google. If I click on any of the options it's blank. I have updated all Google apps and unistalled and reinstalled and nothing is working.
I've been using this app for almost 2 years now and it works fine. But there has been a bug lately. Everytime I try to open a file, it always says, "unable to preview file". Please fix this as soon as possible.
I can't access my files. It always says that "unable to preview file." I already tried to uninstall it then install again, but still, unable to preview files.
This app keeps crashing....I have reinstalled it like a million times and still not working. Please fix this problem asap. I have done everything you asked of me and the app is still not working 😕
Having problems opening files. My own files can't be seen so as my past ones. Yes I can open the files outside of google classroom.
Whenever I try to open a file it shows unable to preview file.... please fix this I have lots of college notes in Google classroom...
I love this app but lately it's crashing and won't let me open my students work to the point where I have had to factory reset my tablet twice. This has been reported, but still no resolution. Hopefully it gets fixed and I can have a better user experience. Unable to open preview is brutal and I have tried many different fixes.
My teachers upload files in classroom, in pdf format. Whenver, i try to open the file, a notification shows up, stating that 'unable to preview pdf format'. I tried to open in pdf reader as well, but it did not work. Kindly, fix this issue.
The app is very useful before. But after I updated it I can't open the files in classroom anymore. It automatically opened any files that was uploaded in it before but now Its not working. What happened?!
On the past few months it worked well for me, but then when i try to view files/images on gclass, there's this error "Unable to preview file" please fix it ASAP. i will rate 5 stars if you fixed this problem.
Well it was great at first but now I can't open the files that my teachers are sending to me and when I try to open it it always says unable to preview file
The app does not allow to edit the post and add some more attachments later as it always shows that try again later but it doesn't work.
First time use everything runs ok. Later on suddenly I cannot give annotation to students work. I have uninstall and reinstall. It runs well again. But after several weeks, problems occured, I cannot open my student's sent photoes. It said "cannot preview picture". My phone oppo reno F2. If I have to uninstall and reinstall again everytime problems occure is very troublesome.
The app itself is helpful and useful but there is a lot of problem and bug, such as file can't be attached, can't switch account, and even couldn't refresh. This app has ton of issue and bug to fix. The account problem always told to do it later again but even after hours, it can't be refreshed.
Recently i cant access the files sent by my students anymore, it keeps on saying "unpreview files" or error loading page. I cannot check or anotate in the pdf and images files and its very difficult since uncheck activities and exams is pilling up. Tried all possible means i know to troubleshoot it but still the same. Hope it will be fix right away.😢
The mobile app is terrible, it take forever to update status on assignments and won't reload no matter what. It will say that assignments are turned in late or missing for a few days. I'm giving it a one star because it gave me notifications on new assignments and due dates. Other than for notifications, the app is basically useless.
I cannot edit the PDF file that my student submitted which is to write and draw on top of it. I know the way to do it but just after I pushed the edit button and when I try to draw something, there's just nothing on the screen being shown. The problem appear after the updates.
I've been using this app for years, but now there's a problem. I can't open a file. It always says "Unable To Preview File," which is annoying because there are some files that teachers post that cannot be opened in Google Drive. I hope to fix this asap, and I think I am not the only one with this problem.
I am unable to open any pdf or videos which were sent by teachers. Whenever I try to open any document, say a pdf, there comes a message 'Unable to preview file' and then I have to download that file and open it through drive. I am able to open files outside Google classroom app but i am not able to open files inside the app.
I thought I'm the only one who have this problem "unable to preview file", I even uninstalled, and then read the latest reviews here and have the same problem, what happened? it might cause problem to the students because they can't view the file or photo attached and also to the teachers, please fix it
Don't really have a lot of problem with this app, but the only problem that i don't like is the "unable to preview file" I try on some other app but I also can't open it, please fix it. And also may I know how to fix it,
I can't view the files my teacher gave to us. I can open it through google docs which is a bit annoying tbh cuz I need to view the file on other app.. Please fix this bug... I'm using this app on my mobile phone..
I have been unable to access any files posted by my teachers for the last 3 weeks. At first, it's not a problem. But now? It is. Please fix this. It says "Unable to preview data" what in the world is wrong with this?
When I take classes with fullscreen mode, notifications and my own profile appear on the screen which makes it difficult to take classes.
I'm not able to reuse any of my earlier posted materials on any of the Google classrooms... Please help me out... It's been over a week... And now I'm not able to view any of my posted files... That's too horrible...
I am unable to open files in Google classroom. Yes I can open outside of the classroom. And uninstall will unroll me from all of my classes,so solve my problem other than uninstalling classroom.
I already update and reinstall but still can't open all the file. Please help to fix this problem, i'll wait your respon. Thankyou
I have been unable to preview any PDF documents in the app for over a week, making the app impossible to use for me. Reinstalling the app temporarily resolved the issue but now one day later nothing works again and reinstalling no longer helps. Overall I am really disappointed in Google for creating such a rushed and unpolished product.
I have been attaching my file to turn in my assignmenf but when I tried to preview it to check, an error message appeared "unable to preview file". I tried to refresh and uninstall then install it but I still can't preview my attach file. Please fix this asap. I need to turn in my assignments and exams this week.
In the last friday, suddenly, i can't send any of my homeworks to google classroom, it always said like "work not submitted" like i have already clear my cache, refresh n restart my own phone. Its not working. I also have a good quality of wifi. Pls fix this. It is really important for me because i missing all of the subjects because of this stuff
I can attach my work but whenever I open them, it's always unavailable to view😭😭😭 even the photos that my teachers attached I can't even view them, guess im about to fail, jk, pls fix it already!!! I have a lot of schoolwork to do this ain't helping😡, if I fail it's ur fault,jk, pls fix it😀.
Lately, none the files are previewing themselves. I can only see them once they are saved offline and then viewed in the Google drive. Please fix this.
All my attached files became "Unable to preview file" what do I do to make it available? I'm worried my teachers won't see it and mark it as zero. Please fix it.
It won't let me unenroll from classes, which clogs the rest of my actually active classes. It also won't accept videos or images no matter how many times I try.
I have used this app for 9 months and have no problems with it, but the other day I can't seem to open files and it always said "Unable to preview file" I am always frustrated because I can't open the files attached to that one folder. The file could always be previewed through Google drive but now I can't, I really don't know what happened but this has happened just now.
I can't understand why, but on my Oneplus Nord CE, I have lost the ability to open files uploaded on Classroom with the last update. No matter what I try to use to open the link, even with external apps it just won't open anything, and if I try to download the files it returns me an error message saying that nothing could be downloaded. You've literally got billions of dollars of budget, PLEASE fix your apps before releasing an update instead of churning outuseless UI changes.
Still can't view attachments. The app installed is surely up to date, have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, restarting my phone, clearing cache as suggested and I'm pretty sure that there is no problem about the file's permission since it can be open using browser but not with the app.
Thid app is very usefull and amazing tbh, but theres a bug where the classroom can't refresh and telling me that my connection is bad when my connection is pretty good. I try to update the classroom and restart my phone and it still didn't work so i try to clear my cache and storage and it still didn't work. So what now?
"Unable to preview file" showing when I open files in classroom. And the files turned into black. These things are happen to my works also. Offline files only able to view in drive
There is obviously a problem with Google Classroom across android devices. I have 3 android devices and I cannot preview my Student's work across the 3 devices. The work won't even open even when you try to use gallery. This problem start at about 4pm UK time on 27/05/2022. Please kindly look into this matter and fix whatever the issue is. I have cleared my data, unistalled Classroom, restarted all my devices, however, I am still having the same issue.
The app works perfectly, but I have recently found out an issue because of which I am unable to open pdfs with this app. Please look into it as soon as possible.
Videos upload too slow when using data. No visual confirmation on where the upload is in currently in progress.
Hello. How do i download a attachment offline? I tried searching on google but on my google classroom theres no option at all. I tried searching again but i saw that i need to get the latest version of the app, i tried updating the app but its already updated. And when i sometimes refresh my google classroom. It always says "please check your internet connection" even though i have a nice internet. Please fix this:))
If there were 0 star option I will give it that because when we try open it is saying to login but when we login it said please try again later or add new account I have added also but it is showing like this only.. Plz fix this problem plz it is very important for me to doing the classes
Google Classroom works, most of the time, on my Chromebook but it is totally unreliable on my phone. When trying to turn in assignments (or load them in) it either takes forever or it doesn't load in at all. Navigation is a bit of a headache but that's not my main problem. My wifi connection is excellent but I still have problems with stuff loading in no matter where I am.
I keep getting "unable to open preview" when clicking images posted by teachers. I can see the image thumb but can't open it in a larger view. However, I found if you click the edit icon, only THEN the image is viewable at larger size. I've tried force closing and restarting the app, but the problem persists... My internet connection is fine, as I can see the previews, just not click to open for larger view. The error resides on your in-app page that opens image attachments for more details.
Since last update, application is not performing well sometimes it shows issues while marking the students assignments and sometimes it doesn't even show the previews, doesn't open the pdf that has to be checked. I reinstalled application many times but issues are still there.
What happened to my gclass?! Everytime I upload picture or file in my class, it always say "unable to preview file" and when try to use the open with button, it says that my files are corrupted. I'm having a hard time now to open the pictures/files that I sent. Please I'm begging you to fix this.
After last update I can no longer open and pen annotate student work. Makes app useless. I have reinstalled and cleared data and cashe...no help...update, fixed by deleting my Google account from the tablet and then reconnecting, worked but didn't save and now same problem.
Files are unable to be opened and marked. Only workaround is to uninstall and reinstall. Clearing cache, data, force stopping, restarting does not work. Please assist me, I cant be reinstalling after marking a few papers.
Yesterday my google classroom is working fine but now I can't view the files attached in my class because it says unable to preview file. I checked my phone settings and go to classroom and permission but it says there is no permission requested. What do i need to do? I have a lot of important things to pass because we're almost graduating.
This app is very useful but I can't open the files uploaded by my professors to answer. That's why my written task are incomplete. I already uninstalled it and reinstall but still the same. I can't still review the files. Please kindly fix the app.
I don't know what happened to my google classroom, it's keep unable to preview the file, i have checked my gogole drive and my Internet , it's fine. But i must keep uninstall and install to view the file. Please fix this problem
Easy and quick to use but I have an issue when I wanted to access the document but it shows me like this: 'Open with'. Lemme know if I'm the one to blame cuz of this problem but I didn't realized. Thank u..
Good application for online submission but there are some bug. When i uploading my video - Performance Task it sometimes not accepting my upload or it's bug.
My Google classroom always have multiple problems it may not work properly notification or not any work that teacher has posted shown in my classroom it mainly happens and google class room is not refreshed notifiction shown on it please solve my problem because of Google classroom problem I have missed So many of my work and assignment I didn't have sooo much in my exams and the chances is that we have online exams Soo please solve my problem immediately I'll be very thankful to you..
I can't view any of the pdf files in google classroom using my phone. I tried to use my other phone and it's still the same. But I can view the files on my laptop. Is it because of my phone? How to fix this matter?
If I click on the photo sent by my ma'am it says unable to preview file. Please fix this bug, your efforts would be appreciated, Google.
It was a very useful app especially nowadays that we are in the midst of pandemic. But I failed some assigned assignments because of some error in times that i was about to attach a file and it couldn't attach as well as reviewing my modules. I tried to find ways on how to fixed it but I can't. So please try to fix and see to it what you can do. So that all student's out there will not encounter what I have been experienced thru this app and wouldn't missed any assignments or exams. Thank you:))
Why is there no dark theme? As expected from Google, this app is, like a others, pretty mediocre in terms of functionality, but on top of that it's also lacking a dark theme, making the UI inconsistent with the rest of my phone's UI. I don't understand why (almost) all of Google's apps (webapps of course not) have both a light and dark theme, but this one in particular does not. It seems to be a rather trivial change to make, however they chose not to implement it for this one.
It was working fine. But suddenly it has stopped working in mobile. None of the files sent by my students is opening. I can't even use the doodle option. Nothing is working. I have reinstalled it twice but not working again. Please fix it.
The app does not let me connect to my work profile. Right when I set it up in my phone, a pop-up comes up and says "We are sorry, but you do not have access to Classroom. Please contact your domain administrator for access." This does not make sense, as regular PC Classroom works perfectly for me, with that SAME ACCOUNT. This is very irritating. I'd appreciate it if you took a look into it.
It's been over two months and google classroom stopped notifying me whenever there's new post from my teachers, I missed classes, oral, and other activities, I checked every setting about notification, the settings in this app, and my phone, but everything's fine and the notification is turned on, IDK why I don't get notified everytime.
My google classroom suddenly stopped working , it wasn't showing any assignments so I reinstalled it all over again....now it isn't let me get in my account, I am unable to login ..what's wrong with the app :|
Hello! The Problem that I wish to be solved is solved now! It's more easier for me to Turn In my Assignments! I rate this 9 Stars for improvement 😊 keep it up 😁❤️
It's Great for my Nephew's Education, It's Much Easier than Last Year because my nephew's teachers are posting the assignments in Facebook so If they answer it and Post it in comments, other students can see other people's answers. Now, Teachers use this app, It's so great and so nice! ❤️😍
I hate how it does not notify students when professors make changes on class posts. I'm that person who always downloads PPTs right when they were uploaded. MS Teams is so much better.
I've been using this app for quite a logn time (2 years), and since 2022 I've gotten a bug which disturbed me for my homework. It can't refresh the app for some reason and it says that i need to check my internet connection. My connection is good, and I'm very close to the position where the wifi comes (my house wifi). I honestly can't even do anything about it. Please fix this, it's disturbing and only trash apps happens like this.
I use this for school and I hate it. You need all the other Google apps to atleast do SOME bits of work. We use this alot at school for work and homework and I find it tedious and annoying
Whenever I am editing and old material i.e attaching some more files in it, I am not able to save that again. It always prompts that can't save draft, try again or discard. I am facing this issue from past 1 week. Please resolve this issue at the earliest.
Try it before responding, that's why this app has poor rating in overall. So slowwwwwwwwww to read assigned and missed task, never ending loading. Silly app
The concept is good but not really well done. This is an app for receiving and submitting classwork, files and links. Like the notifications, to-do list, and due date features. Here's the problem: there's no way to search and find a specific assignment or message, so one needs to keep scrolling down till they get to that message. Also, students should be able to customise their to-do lists. Assignment questions cannot be copied to clipboard or shared.
The app was great all throughout my school year since pandemic came. This become one of the used app in my school but I failed twice in exam because I didn't turned in the paper I uploaded because of the notification blocking the turn-in button. Kindly put the notification at top so the turn-in button still visible. Now I have to retake my semester.
It takes 5 minutes for the to-do list to finish loading, this has been the case for years and never seems to be fixed, the web version doesn't have this problem.
I've been trying to login to my account but it keeps showing me an error that says it failed to log in and that I should try again. Reinstalled it a lot of times but kept seeing the same error. I'm positive my account email is correct as well as my password. When I tried to add an account, it keeps saying the account is already registered in the device. What gives?
So I've been trying to sign in all day and it won't let me. I've updated the app, I've updated the phone, I've restarted the phone a million times. And it keep saying something went wrong. And won't let me in.
As a student using this i could say it's not good we use it for learning new language ..i couldn't copy the text in it to translate it ..i couldn't make a voice note and we couldn't chat with other students private
I am actually using this app and it's good! I can even have meetings through it, organize class material and add tests. There's no limit to how many test or quizz can have active. I'm still experiencing this app but, today I can say for sure that this app has helped me and it's a free. I find this very useful. I think it still need some updates to configure somethings up, but once you start to get used to it, you will not have any problems with it.
After the last Update, I've been having difficulty making copies of attached files for my students. I set the option to make copies for each student, but the App reverses it to the 'View only' option.
It is too slow and also there is no option to search and too less options. Please improve the scanner.
This app is really good but Google, please add dark mode. It will be a huge difference and i think many people are going to this change in you can implement it. Please 🥺🙏. Thank you
I can't open files anymore so the app is basically useless to me. The buttons in the app don't work.
pretty good for school work has some minor bugs. Im only in middle school and yet, I put four stars just for it's overall simple design. most of the one star reveiws were written by 7 year olds who dont like the idea of having school work online. overall, pretty good app. keep it up!
Its nice but when im trying to save a file it just lets me out of the assignment then when i click it again the file was'nt there please fix this issue because in 2020 and 2021 the camera and the video works fine and also saves the assignment that the teacher gave but when in 2021 in started acting weird i tried the file but when im trying to click the assignment then type on then save it its not working its just letting me out of the assignment automatically then it does not save pls fix this
This app is amazing. I deducted a star because i just think it would be worth a five star if the app shows the students that the teacher has viewed the assignment. I am not talking about the teacher giving comments/grades. I actually mean to say that some teachers just see the work and don't reply or add comments about it. So it would be better if this app has a seen and notseen/unseen option so the students just get to know thier project has reached the teacher or not.
I actually restarted the phone few times, cleared the cache and it didn't work at that time. I don't have update option because it were the latest version which is why I uninstalled then install it back. Fortunately, I waited for few days and it work back like normal. Thank you so much for the reply. I hope you have a great day
Overall, the app is AMAZING! In fact, this may be the best school app! Only one problem though, and its that I can't open attached pdf files on tasks when using my phone. Could you help me with this? It would be a great help! Thank you!
Pen is not working for marking. Please fix it. It's not working properly after upgratation. It stops edtinig files, the screen freezes. Very difficult to use it.
I need this all the time! Although the wifi can be slow with it, it isn't the app it's the wifi, I can use it on any device and get to my classes anytime anywhere
It's an app that is very accessible and useful, especially when the teachers and students are remotely distant from each other. It gives an avenue for the students to exerience the vibe and atmosphere of a classroom virtually. I just hope that they can add an additional feature where chat feature per class is possible. It will be more convinient if there is a readily chat box that allows the students to send a private message to their teachers or send data in their group chats.
Mann!!! It's so bad that I am always trying to get started so it is showing that u have no access and 1 day before I was working and even uploading the work. Please fix the issue as soon as possible, or else tell me I will just permanently uninstall it.
This app was great until the April 15 update. Now I can't open any of my student's attachments. Video, pdf, etc., none of them will open. Tried reinstalling the app but no luck. Thank you to Google for the suggestions for possible fixes, however the suggestions made revolved mainly around the desktop version of classroom. My problem is with the android version. EDIT: Well after yet another reinstall, Google classroom is once again opening attachments. Great to have it working again!!
Could be a hell lot better! Allow us to edit the text formatting like on the website! I had how I can only type text but bot bold or bullet point anything. I would greatly appreciate if we could also have indented bullets in general as well.
Literally loaded a single time and doesn't work anymore. How am I supposed to submit my video recordings if your app doesn't even load?! This applies literally anywhere I am it isn't my internet connection, it doesn't even work at home
Google classroom ha given my problems lately. I just want to check my exams and everything but noothing works. I couldn't go in and I had to reinstall everythimg yet it didnt work. It kept saying I had to refresh it but after I did it told me "refreshed in 2021. >:(
The web version is great, however, the mobile version is quite laggy. When I do turn in schoolworks in my loptop and check it out in my phone somehow i still see my turned in works not done. I also bought a new phone, still, not that responsive. I'm not sure if everyone is having the same trouble. But overall it's not that bad.
I installed this app for school it crashed the first time I opened it and the second I couldn't access my assignments. When I finally got to a page where I could complete my work I couldn't even open a Google document up. The website is the only thing that works properly sadly. Don't download
This is trash I can't save my answers in the Google docs and I'm super sure that this app is not really updating their bugs or problems because 3 months of not able to save my answers in my google docs this is the number 1 problem they have and I want this to be fix because it's annoying and stressful not able to use the docs to answer Learning tasks or questions that the teachers assigned to us students. And this thing has a problem for not opening files like this file is not able to open.
Since it's last update on April 8th 2022 Google Classroom has been giving multiple problems. It's stops editing the file in the middle, doesn't save the edited work or the screen freezes making it seriously difficult to mark assignments as all work goes to waste. Every single time have to uninstall it and then reinstall it just to get it to work again. This has been happening since the last update.
Great app, if it ever works again. It's always saying "something went wrong, check your internet connection and try again" and just not loading anything even on a perfect wifi connection. It's broken. Edit: It works fine on browser, this is just concerning the app
Why does this keep saying that it would not refresh my class ? Everythime I use this app, it keeps saying that it would not refresh the class. This is disappointing. My data and wifi is completely fine. Still, not yet I could refresh my class. If this bug or whatever this was, wasn't fixed, it would be just as futile as it was.
Terrible. Never works. I had to uninstall and reinstall to try to get it to work because I haven't gotten anything updated on there in a month. Now I got kicked out of all my classes. Fix it google.
I am able to do everything from the web but in the app it always show couldn't refresh classes and that is why I am unable to see any pdfs or links given by my teachers. Pls try to rectify the problem.
I used to like this app, but just suddenly stopped working, I can open the app but can't open any of the homework or read any newsletters, the pages don't open. I have provided feedback but nothing happens. Unfortunately this is the only way to see the homework! I have tried uninstalling, removing the account, clearing cache, restarting, sync data, nothing works.
The app barely functions and on the odd days it does it constantly crashes and freezes. I have missed due dates on assignments because they said they were turned in but two days later I get an email from my teacher asking where the assignment is. You are literally one of the biggest companies on the planet, can't you direct some of your more competent programmers towards this than another project.
really frustrating at times because sometimes I clean my phone so I uninstall some apps to clear storage and just now I installed Google classroom it won't let me logged in what is the problem? It keeps on saying try again or use another account and I did but it always say that what's the problem really?! This is the second time happened and I still can't access through it and I needed to submit my assignments please fix it thank you.
It was okay till the last update but after that when i updated it i couldn't see any of my classses and it said couldn't refresh feed or something like that and it wouldn't work. It works fine on my computer and phone so i dont know what the problem is PLEASE FIX IT
Although it is useful ,but not for students ,for teachers it is very useful, easy to pick out who didn't finish the work,even though teacher forget app will remind them and a lot of features available to make uncomfortable to students (deadlines,done late,work missing,etc....)
This app in my opinion is good not great. I would suggest you to include a feature of dark mode. When I download my files for offline viewing, the document doesn't open, telling to connect to the internet. I hope you solve this problem.
Worst update from google. Wifi doesn't work, opening files from teacher works only on cell network. Restarted the device, cleared cache and even reinstalled it to the latest version, still no hope. Used to work fine before the update.
The process of Uploading a file takes too long especially if it is a Media File. Considering that the internet connectivity is fast and stable, The app does take to long to upload the file. Pls, fix this issue.
Upcoming work doesn't show up. Requires you to add your school Google account to your device to use it. Uses a lot of background data for some reason. You can't turn off email notifications - I keep getting classroom spam whenever someone posts a comment...
What I don't like about this app is when I am about to submit my performance task, it still takes forever to upload even its a 1-min video. Uploading pictures, documents, etc. is OK but when it's a video I can't attach it because its taking a long time to load and it's really irratating.
The app is good and does it job. But I would suggest that a "Filter" option be provided, so that we can search for assignments/posts that were posted on or before a specific date, or filter out posts from specific person, and also based on keywords in the post. If I want to search something posted 5 months back, scrolling through the entire list to eventually find it is such a pain
Google classroom itself is pretty good but im having trouble with downloading it as a student. It's always worked before for me as a student on any other device but for some reason it just won't work on my phone :/
Please add a option to add the attachment to a material which is already created just like picking an already created topic. This issue happens when adding a link using the sharing option on mobile. Ex : adding a youtube video by using the share option and selecting the google classroom app with mobile app. Because of there is no such option I have to go back to the app and open title and add link which is time consuming.
I'd still use Google Classroom on my laptop since it's way more efficient. I can't even look at the comments on the submitted DOCX. Even if I do, it doesn't highlight what part it's talking about. Just the comments. I already cleared data and all but no luck.
It works, but most of the time the app is unreliable where it has issues with loading assignments and turning it in. Use the browser version instead...
Since it's last upgrade on April 8,2022, it's having multiple issues. The app doesn't save edited work, gives screen freeze and just restarts at its own leaving your work unsaved and wasted. I am having serious trouble marking assignments and it's all since it's last update. I have tried clear cache, it doesn't solve it. I have to uninstall and reinstall to make it work.
Worst app. I try so many times to upload and everytime server rejected. Its so annoying and frustrating. When students work hard and finish their assignments on time. But due to faults in app, they have to suffer.
I can't annotate (draw on) student work photo anymore as a teacher. I have Android phone and tablet. I tried everything like updating, reinstalling, clearing cache etc. This was the main feature I use so it's very frustrating.
Overall the app is great! But a search option for the materials and assignments would be really helpful, because of their huge number. I hope this feature would be included soon. Thank you.
I can tell that i like the app but i can't even tell not at all times this is good to use, because why? Ok i'm telling now. First there is some bugs like if you create a class and add students if you typed wrong email account there was an fake account that don't have any profile picture, and the same that i typed but it's wrong but i really don't think that, that'll happen. Second bugs again, le'me say, there's an update that bug fixes but for me it's nothing changes so that's all hope fix it..
This app is so stressfull sometimes when i need to pass my work it always takes too long to load and sometimes if i will use a link it will always say Something went wrong pls try again its so annoying my wifi is fine and this stuff still happens.
The app is great. It's what most of my instructors use for our online class. But I hope this app will also notify students if ever our teacher edited their posts/assignment. So that we'd know right away if there's been a change of instructions.
I saw someone who has the same issue about this, I also have a hard time uploading my files sometimes it takes days, hours to finish it sometimes it doesn't upload, i hope you could FIX this i even tried uploading it by using different devices and update it, the problem is not the phone version or the phone or the app version anymore...it's the app, FIX this because my grades depend on your app, it's been 3days..Im still waiting to pass the activity, I even reached the deadline just to wait.
BEST CLASSROOM APP SO FAR! Recommend this app for teachers and students, my school uses this but I have 1 problem... it takes too long to attach videos and my wifi seems to be fine with other apps pls fix it... But Google LLC keep up the good work!
This app was very handy and user-friendly BEFORE. But errors are annoying. Since January of 2022, It is difficult to upload and attach videos,pictures,links and files in "your work". That's why I ended up submitting my works in the private comments. And last week I had submitted a feedback about the problem in turning in assignments. I can't write a private comment, tap the mark as done and attach anything. My teacher found it hard to check my homeworks aswell. Please fix this problem asap!
The app doesn't show my work in the to do place so I have to go to each class. Which would be okay if I only had a few classes but I have about 9 including my extra credits. This app crashes quite a bit and I've tried on different devices and it's just the app. It's a good concept just not well executed.
From 4⭐ to 3⭐... The ability to make the file offline is very unreliable! The only thing it is good at is download PDF files. Some Slides and Docs files takes ages for it to complete. It even struggles to download one file... How can I rely on this for multiple downloads if this thing struggles to download a single file? Note: Storage or internet connection is not the issue...
Why I can't submit my assignments? Is it about my full drive storage? If that is the cause, that is ridiculous! Why not seperate the storage between medias, documents, emails and others? Since my premium storage expired, I cannot submit my assignments. Cannot upload my works onto the cloud drive and now I'm not gonna receive emails because of full storage. Do you think all people can afford the drive storage price every month/year? Not all people are rich okay...
The app is very well done, they can only fix the problem that it does not send attachments, it only sends the notification that it did, but it does not work even if you attach the desired file or files desired
It sucks. Every time I open the app, new assignments don't show even when the teacher posts them. Half the time when I submit assignments, I have to re-download the app and I can't do any work.
Fix the problem when uploading a long video or big file. It takes too long that it doesn't even upload the file and just keeps loading. It wastes my data connection. I don't have WiFi. FIX THIS PLEASE! IT'S BEEN MONTHS AND THIS PROBLEM ISN'T SOLVE UNTIL NOW! Also, put a progress bar when uploading a file or document so we can see how is the uploading doing.
This version is not working on my phone after an update. I can't access my documents. Have uninstalled and reinstalled it nearly 10times still it's the same... please help me out
I hate the update, I prefer the old version. The notification (for example = 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝒘𝒐𝒓𝒌 𝒉𝒂𝒔 𝒃𝒆𝒆𝒏 𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒂𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒅) is very annoying, it makes me wait for the notification to disappear by itself so I can hand in the work.
I rate this one star because it doesn't give me a notice saying I have an assignment that's missing and I get an f on it. It would be helpful if you had a notice for that so I can get it done a lot faster. The app takes forever to load when I get in so I get out and back in and works just fine. It takes forever for it to load everything.
Still needs dark mode and the ability to move around classes. Also waiting for material you UI changes, but that will come later. (Update: We're actually getting nice changes? Woo! Still nothing like I've put on this review though.)
Hi since yesterday I am facing issue in classroom app. I am not able to save papers after correcting. Whenever I click on save option, the app closes/crashes. The app keeps stopping. I tried reinstalling the app but it was of no help. Please help fast! Tried all of these, nothing helped!
This app is getting worse, it doesn't notify me anymore when my teachers are posting new activities and quizzes. I just missed a quiz earlier because of this, pls fix this problem.
This app is trash there are a lot of bugs, it doesn't update your to-do list. It lags all the time, and it always has an issue of logging in your account. Sometimes i can't even open it come on google do better.
Whenever I passed an activity that I've already done, it doesn't deduct it from my assigned task/to do this week, which is annoying bec I have to tap the mark as done button to fully removed it. And this happens a lot when I answer in google forms or links like that. (srry for my bad english, english is not my first language lol)
Great app,haven't had issues with it in three year. April 2/2022 issues when editing a post: as you write somewhere at the beginning of the text, it moves down and you can't see what you're writing. Uninstalled, cleared cache, same.
Previous set up in google classroom is still good, not now that I get in trouble in uploading files that always request emails permission to get a file which is not usually happening before. Checking also my drive linked to my google classroom, the file I uploaded in class was not there. It was super struggle for both parties online.
First of all this is a very good app but lately when i am opening the app, i am not able to refresh the page.It is showing "something went wrong check your internet connection and try again" i am a student and some of my important notes is saved in classroom i am not able to open those too.
The invitation do not always work. Also, it is sometimes laggy and it takes a long time to upload assignments and search assignments without the search bar.
Rate as of March 31, 2022 (might update/change it sooner/later) I give it 5 stars because it is very easy to use and my biggest concern is solved about answers being filled when taking a quiz and then having problem with current device so when transferring to another device, the answers can be restored! Really convenient. Thank you keep up the good work it really helps us students.
Terrible. Couldn't link child school account. After selecting it just sat whirling. I left it and checked an hour later and it was still trying to link it. Not sure why I would need to reinstall considering I'd only just installed it. Sorry, but messing with accounts doesn't sound like a good recommendation either.
I have had great experience wit GC so far but would like to give a suggestion. If u could include a search bar in the classes to find the assignments using their name...because scrolling through the various no. Of assignments to find a prticular one is annoying and time consuming.
Thanks for helping me in online school for 2 years. Keep the best feature & improve the attachment loading, so it's not too long to wait. Overall, this is very helpful app. Thank you!
I am apart of a few google classrooms and it's always worked well. I am all of a sudden having problems with my own classroom. I open it to write an announcement or post an assignment and it just crashes. I've tried installing and reinstalling and updating. Any help greatly appreciated!
Google drive link sharing is so buggy. Says I can't pass my work yet, and have I not been helped by a random fellow user, I wouldn't have resolved it. However, my adviser revealed that the resolved Drive folder link was "unredirecting" here due to the alert that says no date to preview. In summary, this app sucks.
To do list keep lagging, they don't update and keep appearing in the 'missing' list eventho I've did all the assignments before. I can't add my account, the app keep saying that i had to either try again or try to add another account (tried this but still get the same notice). I've reinstalled the app, but they stay the same. I still can't log in to the app with any of my email account. (I'll change the review after they get those fixed).
We need... Google Classroom dark mode. So that it wouldn't be too bright when we do activities at night. Please also limit the activities that can be uploaded by the teachers. It's too overwhelming when we see a long list of assignments that are due next month. And... We couldn't save the document we edited in the classroom. Our time and efforts are wasted. Pls do some bug fixes.
This app is good, almost all of it. The thing that is not good is when I uploading something or submitting file to the activities IT DOESN'T SHOW ANY PROGRESS BAR, as a student that don't have a strong connection to the internet, I get confuse and worry sometimes that what if my files doesn't uploading we only know it when it's done and when it failed. I suggest to add the progress bar when upload any file to the app, it's actually good in the eye that you can see your work uploading. So please
I cannot fathom how stressful this app is. Sometimes when I pass, it doesn't save. Sometimes it doesn't load. Sometimes, text enters quantum mode and has a spasm. Sometimes, it lags and sending documents become slow. What. What. Whatwhatwhatwhatwhat. What's worse is Google doesn't fix the bugs, at all. It's been months, years, nothing changed. I am going insane. Urge your school to choose another learning app, please. Look at other reviews, I am not alone. This app is terrible.
This app does its job. But, I think the UI could've been better, like other Google apps which have a colourful UI. Also, it is really slow, it takes a lot of time to refresh and ages to upload any document. Also, the inbuilt scanner is not good at all. But, there are no ads, and it is useful for school. So 3.5 stars for me. I really hope you improve the UI and make the app a bit faster. Thx.
I cannot save the checked file. The latest version is not working in my phone. Thanks for the reply. I have uninstalled and reinstalled about 10 times since yesterday. When I reinstalled for the first time the updated version was working but after 1 hour it went back to its previous version. I have done everything but my issue is not yet resolved. Please provide me the mail id so that I can send screenshots of the same.
The app has a MASSIVE design flaw, everytime you attach a file, there's a notification that lasts for 30 seconds, and it IS RIGHT ON THE TURN IN BUTTON! So every time you attach a file, you have to wait 30 seconds for the notification to fade out, then you can press the turn in button. fix this
Best app ever. It will help especially for students.it is good but there are little bugs. Like if we go to the classroom and go to check notifications after checking it it shows that it is unread. And also when I go to my to do list it takes much time to load. Sometimes it takes 10 to 20 minutes. Please fix this issue as soon as possible.
The app always lags. There are times that you can't even attach your homework and when you finally attached it, your homework won't load. This is really buggy and laggy. Because of those issues I mentioned about this app, many students and also my teachers suffer. There are times that you can't submit your work on time because you can't attach it. This is really frustrating!
Student; I had no problems with it and it has worked fine through middle and high school. Usually I use it to view homework or the key to see if I got answers right. But, like two days ago, a bug has occured where when I tapped on my class it disappeared. And so far they haven't come back. As well as it says it couldn't refresh my classes. I hope you can fix this bug soon.
This isn't the best app for school, bit it's currently the best that there is. This app has lots of glitches (deletes classrooms randomly, won't let you attach files randomly, app has periods where it will crash for a while), but still gets the job done at a minimum. At least it's easy to communicate with your teacher and classmates. However, I do know that it isn't easy to create an app like this, so I thank everyone who works on it. But please read the reviews of other people! It could help.
I was able to use this app all last year to turn my child's work in and with keeping up with assignments and daily updates from teachers. For some reason this year the app will not even allow me to login. This is a huge inconvenience not for just me just the teacher as well. I really hope these issues can be fixed. The app was great last year.
Very Disappointed! You guys are neglecting this app. In this pandemic situation a lot of universities around the world are depending on this app including my university but a lot of issues to be solved. notification has some serious issues. Sometime it shows up late. and doesn't go away even if I read it. it stays unread. There is no "mark as read" option. No dark theme. UI sucks!
This app does the bare minimum, which is horrible, especially since so many people are using it during the pandemic. Please add more features to flesh out the app! The app doesn't run smoothly, often taking minutes to load. When one tries to upload homework, it won't allow for your apps to connect and it is hard to turn in one's work.
Like everyone else my daughter had to use Google classroom due to the pandemic. Going full virtual was a challenge to say the least, however this app did make it somewhat easier(if thats possible) After using it for a couple days she picked it up with no problem. The only issue was when she couldn't figure her homework out and I wanted to print it, I couldn't find any way to do that. Do not like that at all!!! I know the whole point was to be virtual but some kids and adults learn hands on
The updating is so slow, it's scary. The "to-do" moves at 1 hour per assignment. It's so slow! The assignments don't update either. And constant glitching as well.. The uploading files, doesn't have a bar showing how long. It's really testing your patience, especially because it takes a long time to upload anything! The notifications.. I don't even know what to say. I recieve notifications a DAY later. Some of us would like to turn in assignments the day it's assigned, thanks. Overall, terrible.
the to do list never works on the app, the notifications never clear after you've read them, it crashes, etc. if you know specifically what you're looking for and where it is, it's fine - you'll find it and be able to open it. good luck doing anything else though. also: please add the ability to customize the notifications! getting a notif 24 hrs before an assignment is due is no help is the assignment is due the day it was assigned (as is the case w a lot of online learning)!
I use the app to keep up to date with my children's classes. Used to work very well. I could log in and see exactly what was done, what needed to be done and see all the communications from the teachers. Now the app won't update the "to do list". I keep getting an error saying it can't refresh. I Uninstalled and reinstalled the app to see if it would fix the issue but now I can't log in. Says I need to contact Domaine Administrator. Why can't I sign in on my children's accounts anymore?
So many glitches. My students tell me a document won't let them edit it even when I return it and they unsubmit. I have to post a whole new assignment for them. It kicks them out of Jamboard all the time when we're doing our exit tickets... so many things you can't do or it glitches on. Very frustrating, but it's my only option at this point. We tolerate it.
As a teacher, the app seems to have gotten much worse in the last few months or so The app no longer navigates directly to a students' assignment after clicking on the Reply or Open buttons from a gmail notification Instead you have to scroll to find the student after the app dumps you into the full list of students assigned for a given assignment and navigate through that. Notifications no longer work and there is no longer any way to clear or mark all notifications as "Read". Instead, email notifications are the only ones that are worth using, and even then the email notifications don't do anything to clear the in-app notifications. The in-app features, like providing feedback and grading still work, but the interface is much clunkier than it needs to be, especially compared to earlier iterations
Needs to show when there is a comment made not just the notification bar, across all platforms. Mark it with a number or a dot or something where the comment has been made. Also needs to be more like the web version, the links teachers put in the "banner" does not show up in app. Links opening in different areas can be confusing, especially for the younger ones. For a big comapany expect so much more than this.
Poorly designed, can view assignments but not edit, issues with keeping information up to date, even if all changes were made on the app. Notifications for new assignments always hit at 12am, and are sorted by assignment, so if you wanted your ringer on for your alarm, you'd better uninstall or turn off notifications, defeating part of the app's purpose. After just a few months, finally stopped working completely. All info is out of date, not possible to view any classes without error message.
Classroomjust...stopped working. At first I thought it was down, but it's been happening for almost 3 days now. Any time I open a class in classroom, it says "something went wrong" and when I open an assignment it says that the classroom doesn't exist. Now I can't get into my meetings and it's effecting my class performance. I have tried to call/text multiple support numbers and none of them helped, please fix this soon!
Awesome experience, it is so easy to use! Although, I don't like when it says turned in late/turned in because I need the time for proof if something goes wrong. For example: I am tardy and the app says turned in late, it would be handy to screenshot it and be able to see the exact time it was turned in, this really bugs me. But everything else is fine.
This app isn't good. It takes forever to load, it doesn't work, and whenever my teacher gives me an assignment, it won't let me edit it. This works better for pc, but on mobile it's useless. I'll do my assignment on my pc, then when I go on my phone to do it, its not there. Only good things is that its easy to get in ur classes, and easy to see announcements.
This app is bad and here is why. When opening ap it will kick you out of classes at random and when you try to add back in the code it takes a while to sign back in even though the code is right. Second, when putting another file onto the assignment you can't add multiple files so you can not add your work, It kicks you out of the app and takes a while to open a document or picture.
The app is a great concept. Although, it does need some updates. 1. All the old work should be set into a seperate folder after it becomes at least a week old so that it doesn't confuse the kids/adults. 2. Have the actual video meet in the same page instead of having to always open up a new page just to get into a classroom. These are just the 2 I can think of off the top of my head. But I'm sure more can be thought up over time.
Well to start, it's a great app; however, it does have some issues. Pdf files take forever to load, occasionally doesn't show assignments, and sometimes won't refresh pages, or says that a problem occurred. This sadly isn't even the worst part 😞. The worst part is when the app actually works and it gives you assignments when it is supposed to 😭😵
In the beginning everything went smoothly. I was able to turn in all my assignments from my phone and view announcements. But for the past couple weeks, when my assignments said they were 'missing' and I went to the press the assignment it said class not found. Also it doesn't update the announcements. Sometimes when my teachers post things it doesn't show up on my phone and it draws me back. Because I'm not able to be on my computer 24/7, that's why I downloaded it on my phone.
Lately, when I've been trying to access this on my phone to post photos for my assignments, it has been saying "Sorry, something went wrong." This has been happening for over a week now and I can't understand why. I know some apps don't work when you don't update it, but I'm fully updated! Not to mention the length of time to post PDFs, downloaded photos, and videos. I wish I could make sense of it, but I'm sadly incapable of doing so.
This is a pretty good app regarding everything I'm about to rant about. So whenever I open the app on mobile, it loads fine but when I try to do anything else other than opening the app, when I'm downloading something, it will take sooooo long just to download a pdf. Plus, time to time when I join a meeting, I face a white screen, then I have to close the application to go back. The app really annoys me with so many things, please fix the bugs. This is the wrong generation.
Its impossible to do recordings on chrome books for band or other classes this is due to the limited options for the add or create bar. An update fixing this issue will be great. Another issue with this app is that It won't let me sign in on my phone. It gives me a dumb screen that tells me to sign in on youtube but it never works no matter how many times I try. Who's bright idea was that in the first place?
It has a lot of issues, It's extremly slow when uploading, I once spent over an hour trying to get a video uploaded and it wound up late. You can't view/leave class comments on assignments. And overall the interface is hard to use. Also, unrelated I hate the new logos for all the G suite stuff. Google chose asthetics over usability and it shows
This app desperately needs a dev update. As a student, the to do list is forever bugged and loads slowly and shows past assignments as missing (subsequently stressing me out). On top of that the upload feature doesn't work at all, there's no dark mode (unlike pretty much every mobile app to date), and clearly is just laziness on Google's part. It either needs an optimization patch or a full rework.
There is constant crashing and I cant do the work teachers give me. I also am having issues with opening assignments when I can finally get past the "getting into the app" part. When I tap on the assignment, an error pops up either saying "this file is not available" or "failed to open, try again later". This is probably one of the worst apps for schooling I have ever been on and I'm sure many more people agree
Uploading files is the biggest hassle in the world, you can't even select multiple files at once. Sometimes in the process of turning in an assignment, it ends up taking so long, you're late turning in that assignment. In some days the app takes waaaay too long to load, as well as the website :(
to the people saying its slow: it actaully works better on certain devices, if your on phone or tablet, it could be very glitchy. if you on computer it works a bit better. The app may not function as intended if you do not have much storage. there is one problem though, in the "invite students" section, you can type in their email, or name in Google Classroom. But, even if you have the right name, it doesn't work! So, please fix this bug creators!!!
Since students all over the world DEPEND on this app, it should at least be usable. You have to refresh every 3 seconds to see ANYTHING anybody says. I cannot stress how much the call quality sucks. The links don't work. It is nearly impossible to communicate with others. After uploading something, it takes 10+ minutes for other people to see. Most of the notifications through gmail don't show up. And it only works as described on GOOGLE DEVICES. Any other browser or device just makes it worse.
The point of the app is to help students and teachers organize their work and this isn't much of an improvement from not using the app. You'd think the fixes would be easy but no. Is it that hard to add some options on what and when we want to be notified for something? Could you maybe clean up the interface a bit? Every student organizes differently. The app really just doesn't make much sense. Also, uploads are super slow. This is a huge issue for timed test taking.
Below optimal. This app has caused my mental health to plummet due to the excessive amounts of assignments it tells me I have even when I do not have assignments. It also states I have assignments that are missing even if i have already turned them in. This app is an easy access for stress and mental breakdowns, the teachers use it very well and very often, to their benefit.
Not updated for android 10 or 11. The app is rendered below the gesture navigation and notification bars making an awkward blank unfilled space at the top and bottom of the screen (When using gesture navigation). The app should be rendered on top making full utilization of the screen, especially the navigation bar! Also, no dark mode support.
I have tried uninstalling and installing the app, restarted and shutting off my phone, and even asked my teachers about it; I still can't get into a class without it saying there's something wrong and it's not updated to the assignments and I have to email my teachers my screenshots of the completed assignment and I can't fix it. This is not a very well made app, but somehow for many it's great...
I have a list 1.) Takes forever to submit an exam resulting in "turned in late". 2.) Teachers aren't smart enough to use this. They put assignments and information in the wrong section. 3.) Slow loading times in general. 4.) Non customizable. Example:Im stuck looking at the same boring white screen. 5.) Online school isn't even school. I have learned absolutely nothing over the course of this pandemic.
Honestly it works fine for a good 2 days until it de-connects from my school account and am forced to re-connect to the account over and over again. This isn't the only issue however. This app is really quite horrible for actually doing anything as the editing aspect just works horribly, and so only REAL use there is to this app is to just check what assignments are due, so that you can do it later when you actually have the chromebook.
They really need to start notifying when an assignment is close to being due. At times assignments never even showed up in my to do list and they ended up being late when I see them in my missing. Hopefully all these bad reviews motivates Google to make some changes. In some aspects the app is fine, but it could definitley could use some changes.
When the app actually works, it's a great app. Helps me stay ontop of my work without having to remember to check my computer. Unfortunately, it seems to never work. Class room hasn't been able to load anything new for almost a month for any of my classes, so I don't get any notifications and need to constantly check my computer. Other than that, assignments that I turned in would unsunmit themselves, or take forever to turn in. The app has been really useful to me, but now it's useless
I absolutely hate the layout of this app, it makes it super confusing and frustrating to use. There's no easy way to tell what you've turned in and what you haven't yet, and looking for a specific assignment is so annoying that it gets to the point where I'd rather get a bad grade than try to find it. I also have constant problems with assignments not turning in and having to resubmit them. I don't understand why schools have chosen this one since by the reveiws you can tell it's the worst.
It keeps saying I have missing assignments even though my teacher has graded them. It only does it on the app, the computer version is completely up to date. Definitely needs a dark theme. Things need to be easier for teachers and even add a tutorial for teachers or a frequently asked questions section. The layout of the app is also super confusing and overly complicated.
I found a way around the only uploading on picture at a time issue; just click on the screen while it's uploading at the picture will upload in the background. Then you can upload the images more quickly. The app itself is decent; it helps me keep up with school, but it's also really buggy. Sometimes it won't show any classes or show already turned-in assignments as missing unless I refresh the app several times.
One of the worst app that I've seen in my entire life When I open classroom to do the assignments, suddenly it becomes error and when i click each class, it suddenly disappears. So I try to uninstall and install it again. But it became much worst than before. I couldn't even login again with my google account, I've tried using my other account but failed too, and keep getting the message "Couldn't add account to classroom. Try again or use another account" everytime I tried. Rediculous !!!
This app was working just fine and I found it very easy to use and navigate through. But it stopped working. I tried several times to refresh to get my daughters assigments and it kept saying something went wrong. So I uninstalled and reinstalled and now it says she doesn't have access and to contact my domain. I own the chromebook so I have no idea how to fix this since I can't contact anyone for tech support. It gives no explantion as to why i have no access.
What happened to the notification tab on the side. It was very helpful to have an area where I could see all new post in order from all my classes at once. It's very difficult to try to search each class individually bc some post dont show up on class steam and teacher only post in folders. Please add the notification tab back to the side of the app.
The naming of the classes are kind of confusing. Because when a teacher names their classes they name them from their perspective, by the grades they teach. Like (grade 11,grade 10 and so on) and that is so annoying as the students don't know which class is which, they are all "grade 11" named. So if you can add a feature to enable to change the name of a class or even change the color of the class from the student's perspective (like edmodo) that will be great. Thanks...
I've been using this app for a few years as a teacher, and it's a solid LMS, up there with ones built by ed tech companies. However, I will say that for some time there have been some noticeably missing features, like dark mode (the app really hurts my eyes at night), marking periods, scheduling and updating assignments across multiple classes, and preventing students from turning in certain assignments late. The Classroom team has not released any useful features to Classroom in a while.
Where is the notification bar!! I am a teacher and highly depended on the notifications to easily see comments from my students. I can't get email notifications because that feature is turned off at our school. Google Classroom is really a pain to use...not teacher friendly at all. And I am NOT one of those technology challenged teachers. Really need to get that feature back!
This app does it's job for the most part, but there are a few bugs here and there, some of which are fairly annoying. Most notably, I just opened the app and it was in a resources page where I left off. I pressed the back button because I wanted to go somewhere else. Instead of taking be back, it closed out of the app entirely. I was forced to swipe the app away in my processes and restart it to get to the home page.
Honestly a great and easy to use app. But I prefer to use the online version of google classroom for the reason that it displays many missing assignments even though I have turned them in and on the web version shows that they have been completed.(HONESTLY GAVE ME SOO MANY HEART ATTACKS) Also in some occasions when you take a picture of your assignment to submit them, they disappear when you are about to submit them. Overall it was very easy use but needs to fix bugs.
The GC app has always been great but now that school has begun this year it has not been reliable at all. It doesn't always sync, notifications do not show up on my phone as much, and I can't check multiple Google accounts on Google Classroom anymore. Get error messages: "Something went wrong" and "try again later" a lot. It doesn't seem to be able to handle the increased amount of people using it. As a teacher, I cannot rely on the app any longer.
As a teacher in a school that is forcing us to use Google Classroom in a environment that is heavily relying on virtual instruction, Classroom just doesn't meet the mark. Its lack of control and organization on the teacher side of the program is just as elementary as it is on the student side. This program is at best used to supplement digital work while meeting in person, but not capable of using in a fully virtual or even hybrid model. Too many limitations and requires a lot of extra work.
Ok so this app is fine for turning in assignments/giving assignments but the mobile app is bad at keeping up with whatever you turn in on a computer or desktop. I open my assignments on my phone to check my to-do list and it tells me that some assignments are missing when I've already turned it in on my laptop. Its super stressful and quite frankly annoying when trying to keep up with the assignments you have to do, opening up files is slow too.
google classroom on computer works fine. notifications are a little slow, the home page is laggy, and I feel like it could be organized better. I've been using it a lot lately, and I can't help but note how terrible Google classroom on mobile is. it shows my assignments as missing even though I turned it in basically giving me a heart attack. overall, not cool. it's kinda what you expect from a mediocre app your school would use as a cheap alternative, so I'm not really surprised.
This is a great app. Easy use, notifications for classes/assignments are nice and work well. The only issue is that after the latest update, it says all of my classes are "unavailable" if I use the app. This doesn't happen on a computer and works perfectly normal, but it is very frustrating to be unable to use on the go or when a computer is unavailable, aka, the purpose of the app. Otherwise, great app, very useful, and works well when not acting up.
I've uninstalled, and reinstalled, and updated. This app will show me my classes, them say info is outdated as it shows a blank screen, when I know very well I have assignments. Very frustrating, I'm in 9th grade and constant traveling, and need a communication platform for classroom, since I can't bring my laptop in the car. Good app, but not when it doesn't work.
It's nice but as a student who has to use this, it would be super cool if you could implement a way to cross out assignments on the class stream so it's easier to tell which assignments we've completed. It gets really old having to click through every assignment and see if I've finished the work or not. It takes forever and I would like a way to check it off or something. Thank you.
The app crashes constantly, but its effective if you don't need an immediate response to a post, in most cases though you do. It usually takes 2-10 minutes or maybe even more to send students a notification of a teacher's post, in my experience the longest it has taken to get a notification from a teacher's post has been one and a half hours or so; which is unacceptable because most notifications we students get are for our zoom classes in which attendance is most of our final grade.
I think that this was a good idea in theory, but was very badly executed. Its assignment system is hard to use most of the time, it's constantly crashing (for me at least), and over all just has way too may bugs that I run into for the app to be nice to use. Some of said bugs cause me to be unable to turn in assignments without deloading and/or will simply force me out of the app. I have had my grades drop because of my assignments not being registered by the site.Overall I wouldn't recommend it
Google Classroom made everything easier during distance learning. It was easy, accessible, and had a great interface. The aesthetic was simple and clean, and was quite easier to look at than some of the things I have seen. As a student, I was struggling with quarantine and separation, but this made it SO MUCH SIMPLER. Just, click click, you can do your work. Click again and you can turn it in. Teachers can make announcements, video chats, and lessons without hassle. All in all, this is amazing!
I have had countless problems with this app over the past 6 months. Some audio files wouldn't play while others would. In an attempt to fix the bug I uninstalled then reinstalled the app - now it's saying I can't sign in using the email I have been signed in with for the past 4 years. I'm tired of this app, and if I didnt need it for school I would not use it.
The app is great, although it's broken. It won't work at all and if I try to update it doesn't fix the issue. The app won't connect, and The Play Store won't let me check for updates so I have to sequentially search and update my apps and I have a lot of beta apps which get daily updates. This is dumb and a waste of time if it doesn't work, other than that this app is great.
