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.
