So and how does Web Clip to Intune Managed Browser enforcement work on Android?

force-intune-mb01It took me a while to figure out the Web Clip/Aweb App story on Android devices, on iOS it is easy, you simple get a shortcut/icon pushed to the start screen of the device. For Android you need to add the Company Portal Widget to the start screen of an Android device.

Let’s see how to add the Company Portal Widget with the web clips and see how the web clip is enforced to be opened in the Intune Managed Browser.

How to enable Web Apps (Clips) to be displayed on an Android device?

First of all, power on the Android device and tap on the start screen and hold the tap until you see the Widget option appearing at the bottom of the start screen. (every Android version can differ unfortunately)

Tap the start screen and select Widgets

Click on Widgets and choose and tap the Company Portal Widget and move it to the right location of the start screen as shown below.

Show now that the web clips/apps are available, lets see what happens if the web app (ConfigMgrBlog.com) is tapped. The following message is shown; “Get Managed Browser. The Microsoft Managed Browser app is required to access this content. Try again after you install the Managed Browser app.”
