How to Install Android Apps on Chromebooks, and enable Google Play with Google Workspace.

This video is for Super Admins and owners of Google Workspace in their company.

In this video we will show you how to configure your Google Workspace account (formerly GSuite) so that your users can access Google Play, and install Android apps on their Chromebooks.

This will also allow you to manage Android devices in your organisation.

We dip into the permissions, permissive or restrictive, for managing the apps that can be installed.

Go to admin.google.com – Billing – Subscriptions

In the left menu select Devices and Android Management

Follow the process to enable this and add to your account. It’s free.

From there go to Devices – Chrome – Apps & extensions – Users & Browsers

Click on Additional Settings and find the ‘Android applications on Chrome devices. Change this to Allow apps on the Google Play store.

In the Allow/block area decide if you want to allow all apps (at your users discretion) or if you will maintain a list of the apps they are allowed to install (more secure, but more work for you).
