Note: If you're using your device through work or school, you might need to ask your organization's admin to to enable Android app downloading for your group. If you're using a personal device (not issued by your organization), you can also just sign in through your personal account, rather than your work or school account. Just note that Android apps are linked to the account you used to install them, so you may have separate apps in your personal and work accounts.
