Android Classic Agent Maintenance Releases
15.1.5 (April 21, 2022) - Download the Android Classic device agent from the MobiControl Android OEM Specific Agent Downloads page.
Block App Updates on Samsung and Zebra Devices
You can now indefinitely disable app updates on a per-app basis via script commands on Samsung and Zebra devices enrolled as Android Enterprise Work Managed or Corporate Personal; and on Samsung devices enrolled as Android Classic. This allows administrators to restrict business-critical apps (including the SOTI MobiControl agent) from automatically updating to the Play Store version and disrupting their device user's workflow.
Obtain "Display Over Other Apps' Access for Third-party Apps
"Display Over Other Apps" permission can now be granted to third-party apps either silently or interactively (depending on agent configuration) via script commands on devices enrolled as either Android Classic or Android Enterprise. This allows administrators to remotely grant their business-critical apps the ability to display itself over any other app.
15.1.4 (March 16, 2022)
Remotely Control IDEMIA Devices
Remote control is available for IDEMIA devices that are enrolled as Android Enterprise Work Managed with an IDEMIA plugin. With this new feature, administrators can troubleshoot IDEMIA device issues without requiring physical access to the device.
15.1.3 (February 16, 2022)
Configure Battery Optimization on Panasonic Devices
Manage battery optimization (Doze Mode) for apps installed on Panasonic devices that are enrolled as Android Enterprise. This allows administrators to exempt business-critical apps from being restricted and affected by Android’s Doze mode.
Manage App Notifications for Lava Devices
You can now enforce App Notifications on Lava T81N devices enrolled as Android Enterprise Work Managed. With this update, administrators can restrict Lava device users from turning off notifications for business-critical apps.
