Assign roles in enterprises

When you create a Managed Google Play Accounts enterprise, the Google account used becomes an administrator account for the enterprise. As the Managed Google Play administrator, you can add other users to help you manage tasks in Managed Google Play. You assign a role to each user. You can add as many users as you want.

Types of roles

Admins can carry out app management tasks such as approving apps, and managing free and paid apps.
Owners have the highest level of privilege. They can do everything that admins can do as well as:

  • Add or remove Admins and Owners.
  • Delete your enterprise.
