Android for Work is a pretty nifty thing to have, especially if the company you’re working for has a bring your own device policy. It helps you separate your personal life from your work-related processes and apps. However, you can’t really test it out as it requires you to have a Google Apps subscription, which means you have to pay for it before you can try it. But now a demo mode will allow those who want to see a sample of what benefit it can give you before you have to spend a dime.
It’s not just the fact that you had to pay that made checking out Android for Work a pain. You had to go through more than 10 screens of IT admin configuration and if you don’t have much tech knowledge, it wouldn’t be easy. So now you have the Android Management Experience, the demo mode that will show off why having this would benefit the company and its employees. All you have to do is go to the website, install the Management Experience app on your device, scan a QR code and then your phone will go into Android for Work mode.
You will now be able to experience just a small bit of the Android for Work system, including whitelisting several apps for work mode, trying out the password and screenshot restrictions, and even remote wiping a device. Just make sure you’re using a demo device or you’ve previously backed up your content or else your info is gone forever. Android for Work can do a lot more, but since this is demo mode, of course there are limitations.
If you’re trying to convince your higher ups to try out Android for Work, then this might be a good option to see what it can do for you. At the end of the control panel page, you’ll see a “get the full experience” link which will bring you to the contact details of a sales rep.
