    I was talking with our Android team about this one. They said “This is already supported. However LOB apps must be deployed by either uploading through the Google Play iFrame in Intune or using a dev account for Google Play.”
    Does that satisfy the spirit of the request?

    Cathy, this does not satisfy the request at all as it brings us right back to the start. The desire is to have direct installation of LoB applications delivered from Intune to the devices and installed without having to involve Managed Play for that distribution.

    Is this still a missing feature? I wish dedicated device manufacturers like Zebra and Honeywell wouldnt claim that Intune is supported when basic functionality like direct LoB apk installation is not supported. Requiring Managed Play for app distribution is not a viable alternative.

    I was shocked to find out that Intune doesnt support direct installation of LOB apps and only supports Managed Google Play distribution. We might as well just use Google's free sample management suite with the sample DPC as the base AE management APIs are all Intune seems to support anyway. It's even more shocking to find out that Intune's DPC then removes LOB apps that are installed using alternative means! Completely worthless for COSU deployments of AEDO devices until we can get LOB apps and file delivery.

    This is also available and used widely with SOTI MobiControl and AirWatch/WS1 and has been for several years.

    It's really surprising this isnt already a feature. Intune was basically DoA for us because of this reason. We can't properly support mission critical dedicated devices without this capability.

    Is this honestly still a gap? I am shocked given how must of a requirement this is for mission critical / LoB device deployments. This is testament to what happens when you do the bare minimum to support the AE spec without building a custom DPC.

    We don't just need a content locker, we need the ability to push files to specific directories on the device. Certain applications leverage config files in the shared storage like /sdcard/ or /enterprise/ on Zebra Android devices as not every application has migrated to Managed Configurations. Zebra's DataWedge application, Ivanti's Velocity, and many other LoB applications rely on external configuration files. Firmware update .ZIPs should also be distributable to the devices. Content lockers are for a BYOD use case and do not service the COPE, COBO, and COSU use cases. I can't believe this feature request was posted in 2016 and still not available.

    Hi, if you caught our announcements at Ignite, we announced that we will support device owner mode for Android fully managed corporate devices. It will preview by end of year. Check out our EMS blog for more info
    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Enterprise-Mobility-Security/What-s-New-with-Microsoft-Intune-and-System-Center-Configuration/ba-p/262542
    So we’ll call this “started”. :-)

    Also, we’ve been supporting Android kiosk mode since July.
