Samsung Joins Google’s Android Enterprise Portfolio With Smartphones And Tablets Alike

Samsung has been holding out on Google’s Android Enterprise Recommended program for years, but it has finally agreed to join the said ecosystem with a wide array of both smartphones and tablets alike. The two companies announced the move in a prepared statement published just moments ago.

This is arguably the biggest expansion of the Android Enterprise Recommended initiative since its inception. As it covers pretty much every Galaxy-branded device that is running Android 11 or will be running Android 11 in the future. Some of those include the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and the Galaxy XCover Pro 4, as well as higher-end tablets such as the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+.

For clarity, “Android 11” in the context of Samsung devices means One UI 3.0 and above, as that is how Samsung is calling its own implementation of what’s otherwise a largely (but not entirely) open-source operating system for mobile devices and IoT offerings. Following this expansion, enterprise customers will have even more options when it comes to choosing devices that they can deploy at a large scale in order to support their employees.

Meaning all of the aforementioned Samsung products will be managable using existing G Suite tools for administrators.
