Microsoft Teams on iOS and Android now work with Teams apps built for meetings. This new feature allows people to directly integrate apps into a meeting while also letting them work with the app before and after a meeting. The same functionality was announced for desktop devices in November, and it’s now on its way to mobile versions of Teams. Microsoft announced the new functionality in a Tech Community post.
Teams supports several apps, including calendars, idea boards, polls, and more. Meeting organizers can add any app to a meeting. Attendees can then interact with an app before or after a meeting through a tab within Teams.
During a meeting, people can interact with the apps through a panel, such as people submitting answers to a poll.
While iOS and Android users can use Teams apps for meetings, they have to be set up by someone using Teams on a desktop. Microsoft notes that some apps have not been configured for mobile devices yet, so they aren’t available at this time.
Using apps within Teams meetings appears to be a popular option. Microsoft recently rolled out the ability to use Teams apps in meetings with external users.
