Microsoft Intune updates will add new enhancements for Android devices

Another team at Microsoft that has committed to monthly updates for their product and service is the folks with Microsoft Intune. 

Today they are giving everyone a heads up on the new features that are due next week in their April update.

The updates for Intune standalone (cloud only) that you can expect to see include:

  • Management of Office mobile apps (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) for Android tablets.
  • Ability to restrict access to Exchange on-premises for Exchange ActiveSync clients on Android devices
  • Ability to create WiFi profiles with pre-shared keys (PSK) for Android devices
  • Ability to resolve certificate chains on Android devices without the need to deploy each intermediate certificate individually
  • Deployment of .appx bundles to Windows Phone 8.1 devices
  • Management of Work Folders app for iOS devices
  • Updated Endpoint Protection agent for managing Windows PCs
  • Ability to manage Windows Defender on Windows 10 PCs running Windows 10 Technical Preview without need for separate Microsoft Intune Endpoint Protection agent to be installed
  • Combined Microsoft Intune Company Portal websites for PCs and mobile devices to provide a more consistent user experience across platforms
  • Added Windows and Windows Phone Company Portal apps to the Microsoft Download Center to provide an additional option for accessing these app downloads
  • Enhanced user interface for overview pages within Intune admin console

As you can see a lot of updates this month focus on Android in your organization and there is continued refinement for supporting Windows and iOS devices.

If you are using a hybrid setup of System Center Configuration Manager and Intune then you all want to keep an eye on the System Center Configuration Manager Team blog for further updates.
