Previously, the Amazon Flex app could only be downloaded as an APK file from their website, making updates cumbersome. Now, with its availability on the Google Play Store, the app will be easily deployed and updated via the Codeproof Cyber Device Manager MDM platform.

Please note that the old app and the new app have different package identifiers, so you must uninstall the old APK version before installing the new version.
