Review smart home devices used for work in your Admin console

What’s changing

Admins can now view and manage the smart displays and speakers that access work data in the Admin console, alongside other devices managed with Google endpoint management

Who’s impacted 


Why it’s important 

In addition to computers and mobile devices, the inclusion of smart displays and speakers in Google endpoint management gives admins a more complete inventory of the devices their users are using to access Google Workspace. Further, this allows admins to easily take action if needed, such as signing out of devices as needed and viewing information such as device type and user account information. 

Additional details 

For select Google Workspace editions, admins can view activity on smart home devices as part of device audit logs. You’ll be able to see information such as: 
  • Whether there has been an account registration change, 
  • If a user’s managed account synced on the device, 
  • If the device has been signed out by an admin. 

You can also set an alert to be notified when these activities occur. Visit the Help Center to learn more about device audit logs
