Work apps

Work apps are apps that are compatible with Android for Work.

You use Google Play for Work to select the work apps that are available to your Android for Work users. Your users install these apps through the Google Play Store app in their work profile.

You must perform the following tasks in Google Play for Work and in Sophos Mobile Control to make work apps available to your users:

  1. In Google Play for Work, you select the apps for your Android for Work domain. To do this:
    • Approve the app.
    • Purchase app licenses.
    • Accept the app permissions.

    See Approve work app.

  2. In Sophos Mobile Control, you configure the app. To do this:
    • Define the location of the app in the Google Play Store app on the users’ devices.
    • For apps that support it, configure custom app settings.
    • For paid apps, assign users a license for the app.
