Google Mobile Management support for Hangouts Meet
On June 19th, 2018, Google Mobile Management will begin rolling out support for Hangouts Meet on iOS. Currently, G Suite users in domains with advanced mobile device management enabled can use the Hangouts Meet iOS app without first installing the device policy profile. Following the launch, these users will be required to install the device policy profile (if they haven’t already) in order to continue using Hangouts Meet on their iOS devices.
Impacts iOS users without device policy profile only
This only impacts iOS users who don’t already have the device policy profile installed. If your organization currently has advanced MDM enabled, your users would have been required to download the device policy profile in order to access Gmail, Calendar, and other Google apps on their iOS devices.
Notifications to users
Starting on June 19th, iOS users who try to access Hangouts Meet will see a notification prompting them to install a security profile. This notification will only appear for users on Hangouts Meet v16.0 and above; users can upgrade to this version starting on June 4th.
Users on older versions of Hangouts Meet will be able to sign in to the app, but they’ll be unable to perform critical functions (e.g. to view and join meetings). They should upgrade to v16.0 so that they receive the prompt and can install the required device policy profile.
Launching to both Rapid Release and Scheduled Release on June 19th, 2018
Available to all G Suite editions
