Google's Android for Work Adds 8 Carriers Including Blackphone
  • Google adds 8 more Carriers to the Android for Work Partner Network!
  • Blackphone and 4 Major US Carriers Added
  • Android for Work Expands to 40 Partners

The new Carriers will offer support for Android for Work in terms of business customers.

Earlier this year Google launched the Android for Work. The Android for Work program made it easier to use Android phones for work and personal matters. The program was available for both businesses and their workers.

The program allowed IT to connect with their work apps on the phone. The employees could still use their phones for personal matters. The Android for Work program kept the work apps separate from the rest of the phone.

When the program was launched Google had already signed up many partners, according to TechCrunch. The wide range of the partners helped bring it in to the market. Today the Android for Work program will be expanding even more. Google announced it will be adding more Carriers to the Android for Work ecosystem.

Some of the new carriers include AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, Rogers, Bell Canada, Telus Mobility and KT. Google has also included Silent Circle to its list of partners for Android for Work.

Previously the list of partners included Samsung. The Silent Circle is a security- and privacy-focused Blackphone maker. Now the devices with Android for Work will be used in government and healthcare industries.

Currently World Bank, U.S. Army and Guardian Life Insurance Company are using Android for Work. More than 10,000 businesses are also testing or using the Android for Work program in some capacity. The Android for Work solves a big problem for many enterprises. The solution is keeping employees in touch with work while using their own devices.
