We manage 4500+ Android devices in our organization. Controlling Android OS updates is not supported at the time being and there is almost no information online on the subject.
Just wondering if anyone knows if this feature is work in progress. Any other information on the matter would be appreciated.
As far as I know, Google is planning with Android 11 to provide an standardized API for manufacturers, so EMMs can use this command to push Updates on all Android devices.
Samsung for example is currently solving this on their own way with E-FOTA (which needs seperate licenses)
With SM you could try to force the user to update by providing compliance policies. And if a device isn't compliant, you can delete profiles until it's compliant again.
Systems Manager does not currently support managing Android OS updates outside of kiosk mode devices.
We do have plans to continue building out our Android EMM features to better support current and future OS update settings.
