Purchase upgrades for Chrome devices

For administrators who manage Chrome devices for a business or school.

To manage standalone devices running Chrome OS from the Google Admin console, you need to order the Chrome Enterprise Upgrade service and purchase an upgrade for each device you want to manage. After you purchase upgrades, you can enroll devices, configure settings, and apply policies to users and devices in your organization. When you place your order, get the number of upgrades you think you’ll need. You can always get additional upgrades later.

If you have Chromebook Enterprise devices in your organization, you don’t need to purchase separate upgrades for them. Each device has an integrated perpetual upgrade that covers the life of the device. 

You can get a free 60-day Chrome Enterprise Upgrade trial and then purchase upgrades. A trial is limited to 10 devices. To enroll additional devices, you must order Chrome Enterprise Upgrade.

Purchase upgrades from partner (recommended)

Applies for annual and perpetual upgrades for Chrome Enterprise Upgrade.

We recommend using an authorized partner to purchase upgrades for Chrome Enterprise Upgrade. To find one that suits your organization, go to the Partner Directory.

Use an authorized partner if you want to:

  • Manage more than 50 devices running Chrome OS.
  • Purchase upgrades for a provided domain.

Purchase upgrades using the Admin console

Only for annual subscriptions to Chrome Enterprise Upgrade.

You must be signed in as a super administrator for this task.

Place your order from a trial

You can use the Admin console to buy annual upgrades for the Chrome Enterprise Upgrade service if you:

  • Used the Admin console to sign up for a trial or signed up online using an address in the U.S. or Canada. 
  • Manage fewer than 50 devices.

Near the end of your trial, you’ll get an email letting you know that you need to purchase upgrades.

If you added your billing information during the trial, you don’t need to do anything. Upgrades are automatically purchased when your trial ends. 

If your trial period ends and you haven’t set up your billing and payment plan, your Chrome Enterprise Upgrade service is automatically suspended. You can still access the Admin console and all your data is retained, but you can’t enroll devices, configure settings, or apply policies. If you were suspended at the end of your free trial, you need to set up billing to resume your service.
