Device requirements for Google endpoint management

The device requirements for Google endpoint management vary by feature. Unless noted, devices that don’t meet the minimum requirements can't synchronize work data.

To avoid sync issues, we recommend that each user have no more than 5 active managed Android devices and no more than 25 active managed devices total.

Basic mobile management

  • Android 2.2 Froyo and later with the latest version of the Google Play services app
  • Apple iOS 8 and later or iPadOS 13.1 and later, with an Apple ID and Safari enabled. Earlier devices can sync work data, but screen-lock requirements aren't enforced.

Advanced mobile management

  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow or later device that supports work profiles and company-owned (fully managed) device mode.
  • iOS 12.0 and later or iPadOS 13.1 and later, with an Apple ID and Safari enabled

App management

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop and later devices with a work profile
  • Android 2.2 to 4.4.4 KitKat devices without a work profile
  • iOS 12.0 and later or iPadOS 13.1 and later

Work profiles

  • Android 5.0 and later (supported on most devices—to confirm, contact the device manufacturer)

Company-owned devices

  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow and later
  • iOS 12.0 and later
  • Devices running Chrome OS
  • Mac
  • Windows
  • Linux

Enhanced desktop security for Windows
