We’ve built Android to help power the connected workforce of the future. With a growing lineup of Android Enterprise Recommended devices and services, leadership in mobile security and flexible platform tools, Android gives organizations plenty of options. At Google Cloud Next ’19, we shared more about how Android can benefit your organization, and offered a preview of some of the features we’re working on for Android Q.
If you weren’t able to attend the event, or would just like a refresher on any of the sessions, here’s an overview of the ones that are now available on YouTube:
- What’s New and Next in Android Enterprise: Android has become the platform of choice for enterprise mobility. According to IDC, 78 percent of business phones shipping in 2019 will run Android. In this session we discussed how we balance security and privacy to provide an optimal user experience.
- How Android Enterprise Recommended can simplify your mobility strategy: This Google-backed program is making it simpler to deploy and manage Android devices across an organization and is becoming a key factor in mobility purchase decisions.
- How Android has Redefined the Approach to Mobile Security: Learn how Android enterprise-grade protections and controls can help ensure that devices and data are secure.
- How Android Enterprise is Disrupting Mobility: In this session, we talked about how Accenture and Google used Android Enterprise and Google Cloud technologies to accelerate productivity.

My engineering team’s work on Android Q has focused on an improved end user experience, more controls for IT, and enhanced security tools. For example, we’ve addressed many top feature requests, such as an API for consolidating personal and work calendars and separate input methods for work and personal apps.
As 2019 rolls on, we’re looking forward to continuing Android’s momentum and impact on organizations of all sizes.
