Getting Started - Mesa 3 Android

26 May 2021

This article gives instructions on how to set up your Mesa 3 Android.

To prepare, follow the steps in the Mesa 3 Android Quick Start Guide. When your unit is ready, you will navigate through a series of setup prompts. During this process, you can choose to set up the unit with a personal Google account or an offline account.

A personal Google account gives you access to many services and security features such as Find My Device. It also gives you access to the Google Play Store and remembers your account settings, allowing personalized settings to follow you from device to device.

An offline account allows the user to bypass the username and password to make the startup of each unit fast and easy.
