Device admin removal
Google's device admin isn’t well suited to support today’s enterprise requirements and there are now new modes such as managed device (device owner) and work profile (profile owner). Due to this fact, Google deprecated device admin for enterprise use in the Android 9.0 release and they will remove these function completely in the 2019 release. We recommend customers and partners to adopt managed device and work profile modes to manage their devices from now on. You can find more informations on Google's webpage.
