Google today announced that their own first and second generation of Pixel phones now are certified as Android Enterprise Recommended devices. I means that the four Pixel phones – the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL – join the ranks with the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, LG V30, Nokia 8 and others. You can see the complete list of devices here.
The Android Enterprise Recommended program certifies devices that meet criteria for manageability, support, productivity, security, and reliability. The idea behind the program is to eliminate the guesswork on which devices are up to the task of being ready to handle the wear-and-tear of being an enterprise phone but also manageable from an enterprise IT perspective.
