To approve apps from the Play Store

– From your admin console, go to the Enterprise approved apps tab and click on Browse apps

approve_company_apps

– You’ll be redirected to the PlayStore. From here you can look for an app, for example Outlook, and click on Approve.

approve_app_outlook

– You can approve as many apps as you want: they will all be authorized company-wide (but you’ll be able to restrict some of them depending on policies later on). Once you go back to your admin console, you’ll be able to see a list of all your Enterprise approved apps.

What about BYOD devices?

In a Work Profile setup, the end user will have access to a secure folder on his device, containing all the approved business apps and data (they have a particular business icon setting them apart from personal apps).

A business Play Store will be accessible in this folder, with only Enterprise approved apps visible.
