The Platform OEM Service for each OEM is available on AirWatch Resources but requires you to be whitelisted (contact AirWatch Support). You must download the APK and either sideload it onto devices or configure it as an internal application in the AirWatch Console.

The workflow for installing the Platform OEM Service is as follows:

  1. Download the appropriate Platform OEM Service from AirWatch Resources.
  2. Enroll the Android device into the AirWatch Console.
  3. Either sideload the Platform OEM Service onto the device or configure it to push as an internal application from the AirWatch Console.
  4. If you push the Platform OEM Service as an internal app, users are prompted to install it.

The example below shows how to run the AirWatch Samsung Service for Android devices.

After installing the Agent, you are automatically prompted to begin installing the service app. Select Install, when prompted.
