Tesla App issues on Chromebook/Pixelbook

Has anyone else tried the Tesla App on their Chromebook or Pixelbook?

I got it installed and authenticated however the app does not resize to the desktop size well and much of the app information is 'off screen'

I'd love to be able access my car using my pixelbook, maybe even pair it as a key. ANyone managed to make th ap work properly on a Pixelbook?
Despite the fact the app is pretty much unusable on the chromebook, once you have authenticated the notifications to the app drawer work just fine!!

The Tesla App worked for me when I folded the Samsung Chromebook to portrait tablet mode. It did not work when in normal mode.
It worked for me too this way, with an ACER chromebook ! Thanks !!

I reinstalled the app and received 3.7. I'm looking forward to 3.8 so that I can pre-heat just the seats.

Addendum: Now that I have signed on in tablet mode, I can open the app in notebook mode. It almost works -- but the scale is off and I cannot scroll. Soooo close.
