Earlier this year, Google launched its Android for Work program aimed at getting more Android smartphones and tablets in use in the workplace.

It comes with work profiles, a dedicated app, Google Play for Work, and built-in productivity tools.

The company announced on Monday that it is holding a live online conference for Android for Work (the first one) on November 4th, which you can now register for.

"This year, more than 10,000 companies are testing or deploying Android for Work, and Frost & Sullivan recently awarded us the 2015 North America Visionary Innovation Award for Mobile Enterprise Productivity," says Nick King, Head of Android and Chrome for Work Marketing. "With Android Marshmallow, we’re taking another step in that journey by building out support for deploying Android devices in a host of scenarios – from dedicated employee use to installing customer-facing hardware that makes interactions more dynamic and responsive."

At the event, Andrew Toy, product management director for Android for Work, will talk about Google's overall vision for Android in the workplace and how businesses can mobilize their workers and workflow.

"Learn how Android’s vast selection of devices – from affordable phones to locked-down hardware and customized devices – creates choice and agility for BYOD, corporate deployments and single-purpose scenarios," says King. "Get an in-depth look at how companies can rely on Android’s built-in multi-layered protections to keep business data secure and managed across all devices in an overview from Adrian Ludwig, technical lead for Android security."

Android customers including Guardian Life Insurance Company will share insights as well.
