Instructions below are for the previous version of the IP Body Scale.
Please follow and complete all steps in order.
*Verify your phone is up to date and all updates have been installed. If you have an Android and you have Gmail on your phone, please update your chrome app. This is important as google/Gmail had a known problem that was causing Android phone app to crash or not function.

Here are the steps to do that:
- On your Android phone or tablet, open the Play Store app.
- At the top left, tap Menu My apps & games.
- Under "Updates," find Chrome
