How to Download Workspace ONE Launcher 4.4.1 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, Launcher seamlessly updates over the existing application version without disrupting device enterprise functionality. For devices that do not support silent install of applications, users will be prompted to install the new version.
    • For Android 6.0 and above, users will be prompted to grant permission for Launcher to have access to the Usage Data, if they have not already granted the permissions.
    • For Android 5.0, 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 Workspace ONE Launcher to the devices, Launcher gets downloaded to the device as a seeded application
    • For Samsung SAFE devices, Launcher will be setup without any end user interaction and the native launcher will be replaced by Workspace ONE Launcher. For non-SAFE devices, users will be directed through a two-step process to set the Workspace ONE Launcher as the default Launcher.
    • For Android 6.0 and above, users will be prompted to grant permission for Launcher to have access to the Usage Data, if they have not already granted permissions.
    • For Android 5.0, 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).
