Have you seen the “switch to work” (or switch to personal the other way around) option when sharing something on a work profile device? P will add the ability to disable that. Mentioned above but James added some useful context there.

Just about to get stuck into DPC migration deep dive and… hotel lost power.

Will pick up in a bit.

We’re back!

These are all excellent usecases, making migration between EMMs easy is a massive time saver for orgs.

And topical with the push for AMAPI - there’s a migration path there too!

I might’ve missed it, but it does seem like both DPCs will need to offer some support. I wonder if this could therefore be blocked…

Green, old DPC
Light blue, Android
Dark blue, new DPC

Grabbed a video of the demo migration I’ll edit and upload later. It’s super slick though!

This slide is a great reference for the QR provisioning in P.

Someone asked about supporting certificates in the QR flow. This isn’t supported for security reasons, ideally need the user to be provisioned before storing certs in the device keystore.

APNs - they call the APIs “override APNs” to make it absolutely clear that’s what happens. APNs typically set by the carrier are being overridden and this can help troubleshooting.

This feature is very much accepting feedback from the public.

This is one of the biggest changes to Android in recent memory. Definitely worth giving it a test!

Back after lunch! Ken and Eugene talk about AER.


(Jason Bayton) #115

Making file based encryption mandatory will be great to see in P.
Introducing AER for rugged and tablets (covered this earlier)
Android academy coming for partners.

Some interesting, and different, requirements coming for rugged devices. More will be announced publicly later.

Here are the key initiatives for this year

Now covering, or recapping, DA deprecation, zero-touch and “Android enterprise first”. All covered off above but as I mentioned, clearly very much popular topics this year :slight_smile:

Exploring the device demo area!

Android enterprise recommended:

I’m totally ok with this new nav layout. Will take some getting used to though and I’m not keen on how quickly/accurately I had to gesture at the moment… would get used to it though.

When too many apps are open you sort of just hold the home button one side or the other. If that’s too awkward a quick swipe up reveals it all normally and you can swipe left and right as is currently the case.

Google to OEMs: “how can we make your lives better?”
Later: Project Treble is announced :grin:

Enabling OEMs to push security updates and OS updates quicker definitely works towards improving the ecosystem as a whole.
