ADD APPS

This button will allow you to add Android applications to your account. There are
three app options available in Android Enterprise. These options are found by
hovering over the icons to the right of the “Managed Google Play Applications”
window. Here are the details for each option:


Search Play Store: This will allow you to search for applications published to
the Google Play Store.

  1. Select the “Search Play Store” option on the left-hand side of the Google Play window.
  2. Then, type the name of the desired application in the search bar, press enter on your keyboard or click the blue search button.
  3. Once you locate the application you’d wish to use, click the app to open it, then click the green “Select” button. You should see a blue confirmation window in the top right-hand corner of the screen that says“ Success. Selected app request sent.” You can continue to search and add
    additional applications.
  4. Once you are finished adding applications, you can close the window by selecting the X in the top right-hand corner or by clicking outside of the window. You should now see your selected applications listed in on the apps list. You may need to click the refresh button to update your
    app list. 

Note: If you are not signed in to a Gmail account, the above process will not work, and you will be directed away from Moki when performing a search. To fix this, simply sign in to your Gmail account and try your search again.

● Private Apps: This option will allow you to upload your own applications in
.apk format.

  1. To do this, select the “Private Apps” option from the left-hand side of the Google Play window.
  2. Then select the + icon on the bottom right-hand side of the window. Note: you might need to scroll down to see it. On the next page, name your application and upload it.
  3. Lastly, click the blue “Create” button. Note: you might need to scroll to the right to see it. You will
    be prompted to enter your email address so that Google can contact you if needed. If you were successful, you will now see the application listed on the Apps list. 

Note: In order to use this function, Google requires that your
application be zip aligned. Your Android developers should be able to
take care of that for you and provide you with an application that is
compatible.
