Microsoft Teams Update Brings Expanded Cloud Storage Support

Microsoft Teams, the company’s Slack-like app for collaboration and messaging, has an update rolling out for both Android and iOS.  The update brings a handful of new features, once of which is expanded support for cloud storage services.  To this point, Teams has only supported OneDrive, Microsoft’s own cloud storage.  With this update, services like Box and Google Drive are now supported for you to share files from within the app.

The updated version for Android is build 1.0.0.2017062601.  The update was release late last week so it should be to everyone by this week.  The update to the Android and iOS apps reflect a similar update to the desktop version of the app released a couple of weeks ago.  Now, across all platforms, you can share from different cloud storage solutions.

In addition to the expanded cloud storage support, which is supported in group and 1:1 chats, this update to Microsoft Teams also brings improvements to notifications.  The app now takes advantage of Direct Reply, allowing you to reply to a messaging from the notification you receive.

Finally, Norwegian and Thai language support has come to the app in this update.

Teams requires that you have an Enterprise level of Office 365 so it is not open to the general Office 365 user at home.  If you are not sure if your company has such a license, check with your IT department.  If you do have an appropriate license, you can download it for free in the Play Store.
