Canvas for Android - View the Conversations Inbox in the Canvas app on Android device

Canvas lets you access your conversations on your Android device so you can keep in touch with people in your course at any time.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display.

Notes:

  • Unlike the web version of Canvas, you cannot view assignment comments from your instructor in Conversations. However, you can view comments in the assignment.
  • The mobile version of Canvas supports the ability to start a conversation. However, it does not currently support a filter option to view starred messages. Any messages that you star in the app can be viewed in the starred filter in the web version.
