Editions Supported: Available only for Google Apps for Business, Education, and Government.
Google Apps Mobile Management lets administrators enforce device policies over their mobile fleet using their Google Admin console, without the need for an on-premise device management server. Watch this video for an overview.
Google Apps Mobile Management covers Android and Google Sync devices, which include iOS, Windows Phone, and other smartphones and tablets using Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync®. BlackBerry devices and devices syncing to Google Apps using only IMAP or POP are not supported by Google Apps Mobile Management. Android devices need to have the Google Apps Device Policy app installed to show up under the Devices tab.
Access Mobile Management by signing in to your Google Admin console and going to Settings > Mobile.
