How to Download AirWatch Launcher 4.2 for Android

  • Prior Version is Installed: The admin can decide when to push the app once it is available on the Workspace ONE UEM console as a seeded application.
    • For devices that support silent install of applications, the Launcher application seamlessly updates over the existing application version without disrupting device enterprise functionality. For devices that do not support silent install of applications, the users will be prompted to install the new version.
    • For Android 6.0 and above, the user will be prompted to grant permission for the Launcher to have access to the Usage Data, if they have not already granted the permissions.
    • For Android 5.0, the users will be prompted to grant permissions for Launcher to have access to Usage Data only if the admin has pushed a profile requiring the user to do so (more details present in previous technical bulletins).
  • Prior Version is Not Installed: Once the admin decides to push the AirWatch Launcher to the devices, the Launcher gets downloaded to the device as a seeded application
    • For Samsung SAFE devices, the Launcher will be setup without any end user interaction and the native launcher will be replaced by AirWatch Launcher. For non-SAFE devices, the user will be directed through a two-step process to set the AirWatch Launcher as the default Launcher.
    • For Android 6.0 and above, the user will be prompted to grant permission for the Launcher to have access to the Usage Data, if they have not already granted the permissions.
    • For Android 5.0, the users will be prompted to grant permissions for Launcher to have access to Usage Data only if the admin has pushed a profile requiring the user to do so.
