How to Use SteelSeries Mice with Chromebook

SteelSeries is partnering with Google to bring Engine functionality to Chromebooks! Owners of Chromebooks and certain SteelSeries mice can use our new app to configure their gear.

In 2023 Google and their Chromebook manufacturer partners, Acer, ASUS & Lenovo, launched a series of Cloud Gaming Chromebooks featuring superior processing power, enhanced graphics and upgraded audio.

To complete these gaming rigs, SteelSeries & Google worked closely together to optimize SteelSeries gear for Chromebook.In order to bring advanced gaming peripheral functionality to Chromebooks, SteelSeries developed a Progressive Web Application (PWA) to control RGB, key bindings, and sensitivity settings for Chromebook-certified mice.

The following SteelSeries gaming mice work with our Engine for Chromebook:
