Martech Mashup: Managing Company Androids

Using phones and tablets for work comes with some issues about device management and user privileges. Now, G Suite is adding a few features to lessen the impact.

Device Owner mode goes

For company owned devices, G Suite admins can apply their company policies for networks, security and app installations.

Previously, G Suite enterprises who enabled ‘Device Owner mode’ gave their users a choice between setting up their devices as company owned ones or personal ones.

As of 19 September, Device Owner mode is phasing into the mainstream—it’s going to be enabled by default and the option to disable it is going away. So, all fresh G Suite account set-ups on new devices will encounter the Device owner opt-out screen during G Suite set-up.

Managed Google Play v The Whitelist

All users will be able to access all apps on the managed Google Play store by default. To work around the default, G Suite admins can activate a ‘restrict to whitelist’ option.

This reverses the pre-existing situation, where whitelisting was the default way to manage app availability G Suite has been favouring the managed Google Play store for a while now, so this comes as no surprise.

Is G Suite administration an onerous task or a totally-worth-it undertaking?
