“After login, a user’s cloud profile gets downloaded and automatically syncs their settings, bookmarks, and policies,” Thomas Riedl, director of product for enterprise and education at Google, says in the company’s blog post. “And with the cloud-based Google Admin console, IT has a powerful and simple management experience.” Even with more than 500 policies and controls, Google’s recommendations make it easy to get started, he says.
IT teams can manage Chrome OS Flex devices and Chrome OS devices such as Chromebooks at the same time in the Google Admin console, Riedl says.
Chrome OS Flex can help schools facing budgetary concerns more easily update their older devices and also allow districts to set up new backup or loaner devices.
