Hey guys,

 

Most of you probably know that Google is going to deprecate Device Administrator soon and we (EMM Admins) are forced to go to Android Enterprise.

I do like that thing and ready to start migration, but one thing makes me nervous. What is going to happen with China users? They don't have Google Play so Android Enterprise won't be working.

I've been trying to find a solution for this as well but have not come across anything yet. The annoying part is that we cannot stop them from upgrading their devices either. Also, devices are now starting to be delivered with support only for Android Enterprise.

@almennn  China and Google services is a nightmware, however there are still time, and lets all hope that Google recognizese this, it cannot be a surprise to them.
