Admins: Install ScreenPal on your organization's Android devices

Silently install the ScreenPal app for Android users

When you use Android Enterprise with an enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider who offers full device management, you can silently distribute apps to Android devices in your organization, including the ScreenPal app.

To get started with managed Google Play, you must first enable Android and managed Google Play through your EMM and accept the Google Play Terms of Service. If you do not currently have an EMM provider, you will need to select one before you can begin.

Select a third-party enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider

1. Go to the Enterprise Solutions Directory to find the right third-party EMM provider for your organization. 

2. To search only for EMM providers who offer full device management, select the Full Device Management check box under Management sets on the left side of the page.

The EMM provider you select should provide your organization with the instructions necessary for setup.  In this example, we will select Microsoft InTune as our EMM provider.

Microsoft Intune can help you manage access to internal apps, data, and resources. Intune Company Portal is the app that lets employees or students within an organization securely access these resources. The Intune Company Portal app is available for desktop and mobile (Android and iOS) devices.  End users within your organization must install and use the Company Portal app to install apps made available via Intune.  Additionally, end users must have a work or school account through your organization to sign into the Company Portal app.  For more information about how members of your organization can download and install the Intune Company Portal app, please see Get the Intune Company Portal app.

For more information about using Microsoft Intune to manage Android devices, see Deployment guide: Manage Android devices in Microsoft Intune on the Microsoft Learn site, as well as the Android mobile device management section of the Microsoft Intune user help.

Accept the managed Google Play Terms of Service

After you accept the Terms of Service for managed Google Play, you will have immediate access to the managed Google Play store, where you can approve and buy apps for your organization.  To accept the terms, complete the following steps.

1. First, sign into the managed Google Play Store with your super administrator account.
2. If you'd like to review the Terms of Service in their entirety, click the link to view them.
3. Select the agreement box and then click Accept.

Note: If your organization is subject to the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you should register the contact details of your data protection officer (DPO) or EU representative after accepting the Terms of Service.

Add Managed Google Play apps to Android devices using Microsoft Intune

You can use Microsoft Intune for app deployment through Managed Google Play for Android Enterprise.
