    Vendors like VMware, IBM, Citrix, Cisco are supporting ChromeOS devices with their MDM solutions. So APIs are available to these vendors what would be the reason not to make it available to Microsoft. Our Google contacts stating they are contacting Microsoft for this but getting silent response.

    You can run android apps, supporting mobile android but not ChromeOS is hurting us.

    Pixel Slate user here. Really want to see Intune Company Portal supported on Chrome OS. If this is a Google problem, how can we raise a ticket with google as well? Is it related to how much Android is able to access underlying security hardware from within container?

    hi, my compagny security policy is based on intunes so no issue with samsung tabs, android phones or iphone to have pro and personnal workplace but not on chrombook...

    even if it's a political problem it have to be solved to deliver a complete solution to users.

    best regards

    Google will not release the Chromebook API's so that they can be managed via Intune...MS already has access to the Android API's but Google will not give them the ChromeOS...this is a Google problem, not MS.

    what a complete joke Microsoft. You cant lockdown a PC with intune so I am forced to use android devices outside of my lug of a windows laptop. I get a portable pixlebook so i ca still do work but you wont play nice with google to make it work. I will be looking into how I can convince my company to get off this crazy azure platform before it is too late. You have to work with other companies and your battle with google is plain dumb when you see the result.

    Clearly this is needed. As the Company Portal app installs cleanly on the Pixelbook, does this mean that there's something missing from the device list that i need my company admins to make this happen?

    It would be great to align our use of Chromebooks with our management tools - couple of large projects coming up where Chromebooks have been touted due to the lower cost of hardware - approx. 500 devices - would be great to be able to "manage" these within InTune the same way we manage corporate Android devices

    I understand that this is a political move rather than a technical one, but the growth of ChromeOS cannot be ignored, nor the fact that it can be used for things a Windows tablet cannot do. And that's not going to stop people from needing to use Windows apps either.

    I guy told me that Google prevents Microsoft from getting access to ChromeOS (As MDM) - can anyone confirm?

  • Bill Wood commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Today I was able to install Intune on my Pixelbook, but when I ran Skype for Business it kept crashing. Still some work to do Microsoft please!

    Hi Microsoft
    Go safeguard our users everyone are required to use Microsoft Azure MFA when signing in, but on Android devices this requires users to install the Company Portal app first as it's not built in like with Outlook on iOS. With the annoncement of Office for Chromebooks in https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2017/11/30/new-in-november-save-time-stay-secure-and-do-more/ do you have guidance for when we can expect MFA users to become able to use Chromebooks?

  • Hamish commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Chromebooks have a strong use case in education and should be usable within an Office 365 environment.

    I worry that this is a competition thing, but hope that MS will respect and support it's customers need/right to use a variety of platforms.
