Why are Some System Applications Hidden after I Provision into Work Managed Device Mode.

Why are Some System Applications Hidden after I Provision into Work Managed Device Mode.

Issue

I provisioned my device into Work Managed Device mode and I’m only seeing a handful of applications. Why are certain applications hidden and is it possible to enable additional system applications that are not visible?

Affects

  • Android Enterprise Work Managed Devices

Cause

When a device is provisioned into Work Managed Device mode only the shortlist of applications approved by the Device Manufacturer will be shown. This will vary from Manufacturer to Manufacturer, so devices will have different apps available.

Resolution

Use the Managed Google Play Store to download all of the additional applications you require on your devices.

 If the native apps are preferred you can use the following script to enable these applications once in Work Managed Device Mode.

Script: enable_system_app <PackageName>
