  • Google announces Android Enterprise Recommended program

While the bigger companies are able to strike deals with Android device makers for better and extended support, the smaller firms are not always so lucky.

"Android Enterprise Recommended makes it simple for businesses to confidently select, deploy and manage Android devices and services that meet elevated enterprise requirements validated by Google", explains Google on its website.

"Some of the top concerns we've heard from customers include the need for frequent security updates, reliable and consistent software experiences, and simplified device selection", Android enterprise director David Still wrote in a blog post.

All of the devices recommend by the new program are certified as meeting Google's minimum enterprise specifications for hardware, security updates and user experience. In addition, OEMs in the program receive an enhanced level of technical support and training from Google. For many enterprise customers, the question of which Android phones should be used is hard to answer.

The initial list of devices that meet Google's new requirements naturally includes its own Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL.

Basic Android enterprise support has been mandatory since Android 6.0 Marshmallow in 2015, and support for work profiles (on devices that meet processor requirements) has been mandatory since Android 7.0 Nougat in 2016. Funny, I thought we were trying to avoid Huawei at all cost.

Google was kind enough to also lay down what is required of OEMs to partake is this program. Even more odd is that Samsung's flagship devices are not listed, but that could change with the release of the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

As Google notes in its announcement, you can expect more Android Enterprise Recommended devices to be added in the coming weeks and months. Additionally, Google will apply the Android Enterprise Recommended framework to partners such as OEMs, mobile carriers, EMM providers, and others.

The point of the program isn't to exclude other devices from enterprise consideration, though.
