The Esper Console gives you access to Play for Work, the enterprise version of Google Play. Within Play for Work, you can approve applications, which can be installed to your GMS (Google Mobile Services) devices. You should sign up for Google Play for Work before creating a template that manages device applications.
If you give users access to the Google Play Store app on the device, you can limit installable applications from the Play Store to Esper-approved applications.
Google Play is a service provided by Google. Esper does not control every aspect of the user experience for Google Play.

Subscribing to Google Play for Work
If you have not signed up for Play for Work to create a managed Google Play account for your Esper tenant, navigate to Apps > Play Store.
Click the Click to Enroll button.
On a Google’s managed Google Play sign up page, click Sign in.
Sign in to the Gmail account you intend to use for enrollment.
If you are already signed into a Google Workspace account you will see a slightly different screen asking you to choose a non-Google Workspace account to continue. Just copy the URL, open a new Incognito window, and go to the URL. You should now see the SIGN IN button. You can then use an existing Gmail account or create a new one as needed.
Fill in the information requested by Google, including your company name, optional contact information for your Data Protection Officer and/or EU Representative. Accept the agreement, and click Confirm.
Click Complete Registration.
You’ll be navigated to your Esper tenant. If you used an Incognito window, you’ll need to log into your tenant. If you’re already logged in, you’ll see a screen in Esper indicating enrollment is in process.
Once the process completes, you’ll have Play Store apps available to use with your GMS devices on Esper.
