Installing the Microsoft Teams mobile app

The Teams app can be installed and used on mobile devices including:

The mobile app – key features and functionality

The Microsoft Teams mobile app possess almost all of the same key features and functionality as the Microsoft Teams desktop app, allowing for a largely seamless switch between working on either. Chat, video call meetings, file sharing, real-time work are all possible across both of these Microsoft apps.

Guest Team members can also use the Microsoft Teams app on their phone (with some limitations in functionality – as with the Desktop app)
