Known Bug on PocketLab Web App for Windows 10 (Fix Coming Soon)

There is a known bug on the Windows 10 version of the PocketLab Web App. Graphs that use the BME sensor component are not displaying properly. The graphs affected are Internal Temperature, Barometric Pressure, Altitude, Humidity, Dew Point, and Heat Index. 

This bug is fixed in a future version of Google Chrome that will be released in the coming weeks. 

Graphs that use all other sensor components are working correctly. Those graphs are Acceleration, Acceleration Scalar, Angular Velocity, Magnetic Field, Magnetic Field Magnitude, Rangefinder Position, Rangefinder Velocity, Light Intensity, and Temperature Probe.

PocketLab One does not currently connect with the PocketLab Web App on Windows 10 devices. We are working on this compatibility issue and will have updates soon.
