New – Seamless Provisioning
You can now leverage EloView or Google Zero Touch to integrate M50 with your choice of MDM provider.

New – Key Wakeup and Key Remap

  • Program which keys on the device can wake up the device and share these settings with other M50 devices by setting up key wakeup configuration profiles.
  • Program buttons on M50 to perform tasks you desire and share these with other M50 devices by setting up key remap profiles.

Enhanced – Customer Out of Box Experience

  • With the enhanced set up wizard you can now enroll your M50 devices with EloView, GMS or setup the device in Android home mode with a few simple taps.

New – New GMS Restricted Mode
Switch the same device between GMS, GMS Restricted (without Google Mobile Services) and AOSP modes and configure device applications accordingly. (Note - device will reboot automatically when you switch modes)
