Release Notes & Announcements > What's New in Miradore

Updated the latest version of the Google EMM API on the 30th of August, 2022

Updated on August 31st, 2022

Google has deprecated parts of its EMM API that Miradore uses to provide Android device management features. To guarantee the best possible Android management experience, we updated the API to the latest version on August 30. This release note lists the main changes of the update.

  • The management of application approvals in managed Google Play has been removed. Now, administrators can add the managed Google Play applications to Miradore only from the Google iframe. To add an application, the administrator can just select the desired applications from the managed Google Play.
  • Miradore now uses Google's iframe for the managed Google Play store. This has effects on configuring the layout of the store with Miradore.
  • Instead of giving permission for a user to install an application, the administrator now controls the availability of applications by allowing devices to install the managed Google Play applications.
  • The concept of application licensing has been deprecated.
  • Application update policy configuration profile for Android has new values High priority and Postponed. These values replace the existing ones.
  • There are a couple of known issues related to this API update that is good to note.

Other improvements

In addition to the EMM API update, this release included fixes to a few bugs:

  • Added HTML encoding to a site name in Miradore to prevent issues with Windows bulk enrollment project file,
  • Added the missing progress bar to the iOS/macOS enrollment wizard.
