Enrolling your Google Meet hardware device adds it to your organization's domain. Any user in your organization can enroll a device. However, you can limit which users can enroll devices by applying certain privileges in the Google Admin console.
Before you begin
- If your device was previously enrolled, you can wipe the device to return it to its original (factory) state before enrolling it again. For details, see Wipe Chrome OS device data.
- Verify your organization’s domain name and make sure you have enough device licenses. For details, see Verify your organization's domain.
- Decide if you want to use single sign-on (SSO) for any devices. For details, see Configure SAML single sign-on for Chrome OS devices.
- An administrator must sign in to the Admin console to accept the latest Google Meet hardware Terms of Service before enrolling devices.

Limit who can enroll devices in your organization
Restricting who can enroll devices will prevent licenses from being used by unauthorized users. Turn on the Require enrollment privilege and then assign the Enroll Google Meet hardware admin privilege to the users who are allowed to enroll devices. Any changes you make will not impact devices that are already enrolled.
To control who can enroll new devices:
From the Admin console Home page, go to DevicesGoogle Meet hardware.
In the Devices section, click Settings .
Click Service settings, check the Require enrollment privilege box, and click Save.
Make sure to include the Enroll Google Meet hardware privilege and follow these steps to Create or edit a custom admin role.
For the users who can enroll devices, follow the steps to assign the role.
