Ignite 2019 - BRK1066 - Collaboration on the go with the Microsoft Teams mobile app

Presented by: Marissa Salazar and Arvind Muthukrishnan

Session summary:
With apps for both iOS and Android, Microsoft Teams offers you a truly mobile-first way of working and collaborating with your team. Whether you use mobile as a companion experience or as your primary communications app, Teams offers all the features you need to stay on top of your work, keep in touch with your team and be productive. Join us to learn about what’s new and coming soon as we look beyond the basics to light up uniquely mobile scenarios. We will show mobile-first and cross-device features and talk about how to get the most out of the mobile app.

My notes:

Mobile devices make up 42% of total time spent online.

The mobile Teams client

Some features of Teams, such as pinned channels, are actually coming to the mobile client first and to the desktop client later

A Demo of Teams mobile followed showing share location, reply to specific message in thread, pinning channels, marking a chat as unread, fast tenant swapping, picture with annotations, audio messages, search, quiet hours, screen sharing, message extensions (poll), SMS-sign in (for an AAD account).

Threaded conversations, notifications across accounts and custom backgrounds are coming in the future.

Blurred backgrounds from Teams mobile was demoed as well.

With OLED screens (iPhoneX and higher) screen brightness is the biggest culprit for battery usage, this is why "dark mode" is a good idea on Teams mobile.


Captive Portal Detection, when connecting to a network where you have to accept some terms or similar before gaining internet access (e.g. hotel, cafe) the Teams client will display a "Wi-Fi Connected, no internet" message.

Smart functions and messages to keep your meeting going.
