Android for Work

Cast your mind back to Google I/O 2014 and you may remember Google announcing its Android for Work program, which is designed to make it easier to use one device for work and home life. Back in February, Google announced that it had partnered up with a selection of companies for Android for Work and now the app has finally landed on the Play Store.

Android for Work allows you to run two versions of the same app but keeps data between the two copies secure from one another. This allows users to keep their work and home content on the same device, without having to worry about mixing up app content. The system protects work data with SELinux enforcement, there are features for managing work contacts and calendar events, and a selection of productivity tools included as well.

Currently, Google has teamed up with companies such as Cisco, BlackBerry, Motorola, Samsung, Box and many others, to deploy its work tools, but your company will need to go through all the setup stages before you can to make use of Android for Work.

With Samsung, BlackBerry and Microsoft all looking to improve the enterprise experience on Android, Google will likely be updating its service as time goes on. If your company is using Android for Work, be sure to let us know what you think about it.
