Posted on Jun 28 2013 - 12:28am by Editorial Staff


Google today announced that it has added a new Android feature to its Android services with selective wipe features. The move means now Android users can stay connected on the go with mobile apps like Gmail, Drive and Hangouts plus admins can manage their domain with the new mobile Admin app. The following are the new Android device management features the company has added based on top requests from its customers:

  • Selective wipe – Remove Google Apps account data without wiping a user’s entire device.
  • SD card wipe – During a full device wipe, wipe SD cards in addition to the internal memory.
  • Device Policy app – Ensure that security policies are enforced across all devices by requiring the latest version of the Device Policy app.
  • Wi-Fi configuration – Enter wi-fi settings in the Admin console once — and they’ll be automatically pushed out to all managed Android devices.
