Sign in to Google Workspace on Android with SSO

If your organization doesn’t use SSO, instead follow the setup instructions at Set up Google Workspace on an Android device.

Some organizations use a single sign-on (SSO) service so that you only need to sign in once to access all your work or school apps on your device. If your organization uses SSO, follow the steps below to sync your Google Workspace account with your Android device.
