Chrome Browser for the enterprise: On the journey with you for 10 years


We’re celebrating the 10th birthday of Chrome this month, and you might have already seen some of the different ways we’re sharing our excitement. (Check out the dino game’s birthday garb!) With a streamlined design, smarter search bar, and other enhancements, Chrome Browser has become a trusted and reliable place to get things done—and this is just as true for everyday users as it is for businesses.
Thanks to the ever-growing landscape of SaaS and web-based enterprise apps, cloud workers increasingly rely on their web browser to get their jobs done. In fact, Forrester estimates that cloud workers spend upwards of 4.6 hours a day in their browsers—making Chrome an essential tool for many business users.
But this change didn’t happen overnight. When enterprises first began to deploy Chrome, workers used it primarily to browse the web as needed. But as desktop virtualization technologies and the adoption of cloud services steadily grew, Chrome became an increasingly important tool for enabling remote workers and connecting people to their business apps. And as smart phone use became more pervasive, the need for access to critical business apps and data across devices became the new normal. Chrome has continuously adapted to meet these needs.
Enterprise technology continues to evolve rapidly, and we remain deeply committed to helping IT teams navigate those changes. With enhanced features to ease your deployment of Chrome across your fleet of devices to policy templates and a growing set of documentation, Chrome Browser helps IT teams securely connect users to the cloud and the web apps that need to be productive, all while helping keep businesses safe.
Take a look at this timeline which highlights some of the milestones for Chrome in the enterprise since 2008.
As we look forward to what’s ahead, we’re excited to continue to bring IT admins the enterprise management capabilities they need for today’s security landscape and end user demands. Roughly every six weeks, we make new functionality available that benefits users and IT, and we highlight those enhancements in our release notes. To stay in the know, sign up to receive new release details as they become available.

Happy birthday, Chrome!
Eve Phillips Group Product Manager, Chrome Enterprise & Education

Google vault will be supporting two new formats in the future, Gmail confidential mode emails & Jamboard files stored in Google Drive.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them. For further information on how to install the add-ons functionality and specific add-ons for a domain, OU, o
