Trying to set up SmartThings app on Kindle Fire HD8 (new generation). I have all necessary Google services sideloaded, and have set Chrome as the default browser.
Downloaded, install ST Mobile through Google Play store. When I open it for the first time, I get a screen with two options: New to SmartThings or I’m a SmartThings User.
I am a SmartThings user, so I click on that. I am prompted to enter my email, which I do. Hit Continue.
A browser window opens (us.account.samsung.com). It is an error message that the website doesn’t work with the current browser. It tells me I must use either Samsung Internet, Chrome or Safari.
This obviously is calling Amazon’s native Silk browser to open the page, which doesn’t translate Samsung’s website apparently. But I’m dead in the water. I click the hamburger menu to Open in Chrome, but I get the same page now.
I"ve tried everything. I cannot find a bridge from the login prompt to the app to a functioning Samsung webpage to get logged in. If I open the webpage directly in Chrome, I can get there, get logged in. But the app refuses to make the call to that page directly in Chrome.
Which is rendering this app useless on this tablet.
Has anyone seen this before and, if so, have you figured out a way to make this work?
