I've been using Sophos to control our company phones for over a year now and in that time have added various apps to the suite, one of which is Zoom, the conferencing app.
The latest version of this app appears to only be downloadable as an xapk file, how do I upload that into Sophos and distribute it to my handsets?
Hi ICT Licensing
Sophos Mobile gets the value from the APK file only for app packages. Would you please confirm if you are managing through Android Enterprise mode? I will check this with my team if we can upload XAPK file for the app update.
In reply to Shweta:
I don't know what Enterprise mode is, but I log on to the control suite, mobile, apps, android, add app and then click the link to "add app" and upload the package
In reply to ICT Licensing:
Would you please provide more details about the website from where you are trying to download the XAPK file for zoom? I have checked on the zoom website but cannot see any such file.
I use APKPure for the APKs for all of the apps that we use as a company as most companies do not directly publish APKs
This is the direct link to the zoom xapk file.
I have looked around at other apk mirror sites as well and they all have zoom as an xapk from this version 5 onward.
Unfortunately Sophos Mobile does not support XAPK files. Also, we do not recommend third party sources for app file, it is recommended to use the official app store only. Please let us know if you have any further concerns.
Unfortunately it is not possible to use the official app store as there is no way to download APK files from it.
If I am wrong and there is a way then please tell me how as I'd love to use the App Store rather than a 3rd party site.
Please check this link and see if it helps, you can also reach out to the zoom support team in case you face any issues.
