- Reassign apps as needed – When students transfer or change grades, schools shouldn’t lose the investments they’ve made in great apps. That’s why we’re adding the ability to reassign licenses for the educator-approved apps in Google Play for Education, starting on April 2. We’re also making it easier for schools to keep tablets clutter-free by uninstalling apps remotely, right from Google Play for Education.
- Starting today, K-12 books are available to all schools using Google Play for Education. With a broad catalog ranging from classic literature to recent textbooks, it’s easy for teachers to get the right reading to each student.
- Reviews from Google Play give a quick view into pros and cons, and new app details show the grades, subjects, and common core standards an app supports
