If your organization uses Google Apps for business, you can automatically install (or force-install) specific Chrome extensions for the users in your organization.
Users see these apps and extensions in their Chrome Browser, or on devices running Chrome OS, when they’re signed into a managed Google Account, such as GSuite.
Here is what you need to do in order to install the Pulse Browser Extension globally across your organization in less than 60 seconds.
Read on and follow the listed steps below.
Access to the admin section of your Google Suite: https://admin.google.com
Click on the “Device management” panel.
Click on the left menu, “Chrome management”.
Select “Add from Chrome Web Store” from the yellow floating button on the right.
Search for the app Pulse in the Chrome app store. Once you find it, select it.
Click the dropdown menu, select “Force Install” and hit save.
In a few seconds, your Pulse Browser Extension will be deployed across all the devices in your organization.
How to make sure it has been installed correctly
To make sure it has been installed correctly by the organization, go to this URL chrome://extensions/ and select the Pulse Chrome extension. You should see–like in the screenshot below–that the app has been installed by “enterprise policy”.
Every member of your organization will see their Pulse New Tab when they open a new Chrome browser tab.
You’ll have to make sure they sign-in with their company email address to get in and read the announcements in your workspace.
