  2. Select All services > Intune.
    Intune is located in the Monitoring + Management section.
  3. In the Intune pane, select Mobile apps.
  4. In the Mobile apps workload pane, under Manage, select Apps.
  5. Select Add.
  6. In the Add App pane, under the available Store apps types, select Android.
  7. To configure the app information, select Configure, and then provide the following information. For Android apps, navigate to the Google Play store and search for the app you want to deploy. Select the app and make a note app details. Depending on the app you've chosen, some values might have been automatically filled in.
    • Name: Enter the name of the app as it is to be displayed in the company portal. Make sure that any app name that you use is unique. If an app name is duplicated, only one name is displayed to users in the company portal.
