I have put up with the shortcomings as far as using it on the Chromebook. The keys not binding, my inability to use shortcuts, the slow mouse at times that requires me to readjust, the useless scroll button, and I can’t use touch properly. 

But now, since the latest update, it’s flickering at times, making Shadow a paying service that I can’t use properly on a Chromebook, the main reason I got the Chromebook. 

So, is there some way that this is going to get fixed?

Bad enough that Chromebooks are hardly supported, even though there’s a big message about it in the updates.

Just to update on the situation:


So, the Shadow client is working. Looks like the later updates to ChromeOS have finally stop the flickering problem that is associated with some Android Apps.

Sorry that I’m only answering this now, but I decided to use my low-end Windows PC laptop to finally use Shadow, since it works better in Windows than Chromebook.


However, the Chromebook flickering apps to be a Chromebook app issue that is not exclusively related to Shadow. I noticed that Vivaldi Android app on Chromebook also flickers. If you’re interested, I am going to post up a proper bug report.
