Google brings Windows apps to Chromebooks with VMware

Enterprise Chrome device users will now be able to access Windows desktops and applications, and use these devices as next-generation thin clients. VMware is becoming the first unified endpoint management (UEM) provider with full Chrome device management capabilities, says Google.

Using Workspace ONE, a digital workspace platform that uses VMware AirWatch UEM technology, will enable unified management of Chrome devices alongside all other endpoints from a single console.

Management of Chrome devices with Workspace ONE will be available in September 2017.
