Okta Mobile – Release 2.16.1 for Android
Published: Mar 7, 2017   -   Updated: Jun 22, 2018

Okta is pleased to announce the release of Okta Mobile 2.16.1 for Android. This update began deployment on March 7 and is available from the Google Play Store this week.

This release includes enhancements, new features, and bug fixes.

What's New

Android OS support

Okta Mobile for Android supports Android operating system versions 4.4.x (KitKat) and later.

Enhanced OMM enrollment

Beginning with Okta Mobile for Android 2.16.0 we introduced an improved Okta Mobility Management (OMM) enrollment flow that clarifies which type of data is private and which is company-accessible. This is an Early Access (EA) feature. To enable it, contact Okta Support.

Improved Android Setup

We've simplified the Android for Work setup wizard by removing the dependency on G Suite accounts. For more information, see Setting up Android for Work in Okta.

Support for pre-configuring Gmail as the email app in Android for Work

To harmonize with Google's plans to EOL the Divide Productivity app suite, beginning March 8 we will pre-configure Gmail as the email app for Android for Work profiles on OMM-enrolled devices. For more information, see here.

Bug fixes

  • OKTA-113511 – Signing in to a particular app from within Okta Mobile failed.
