Microsoft Teams finally completed for Windows 10 Mobile

Published by at

Unveiled eight months ago, Microsoft has just now got round to implementing its new (commercial Office 365-tied) Teams service as a complete UWP application for Windows 10 Mobile. Way behind the Android and iOS versions, annoyingly, but at least Teams is now more or less complete on Microsoft's own platform.

From the Store description:

This app requires appropriate commercial Office 365 subscription. If you are not sure about your company’s subscription or the services you have access to, please contact your IT department. 

Microsoft Teams is your chat-centered workspace in Office 365. Instantly access all your team’s content from a single place where messages, files, people and tools live together. Take it with you on your favorite mobile device. 


  • Work with your team’s documents on the go
  • Move seamlessly across different team projects and topics 
  • Mention individual team members or your entire team to get attention 


  • Chat privately one-on-one or have group conversations already started from another device 
  • See real-time chat history on your favorite device and continue conversations started elsewhere 
  • Chat with your entire team across dedicated channels 


  • Include content and capabilities you need every day 
  • Customize alerts to get notified when you get mentioned or get a message


  • Get the enterprise-level security and compliance features you expect from Office 365 
  • Enhanced security with multi-factor authentication

From our original launch coverage for the service:

Keeping teams working together effectively online has always been a bit hit and miss - we used to use Skype and its chat groups here at All About Towers. Others have recently used Slack, a startup which has seen a lot of success, but now Microsoft has got into the game in a big way, expanding the Office 365 empire with a new product, Microsoft Teams (née Skype Teams, so you can see where all this came from in terms of ideas). See the release and promo video below, though note that this is all for just Office 365's Business and Enterprise SKUs, so don't get too excited as a consumer/enthusiast.

So all very well in theory, but there's zero way I can try this or report on how well it works!

MSPU reports on a 'changelog' for this version, implying that the app did exist in test form previously (it may well have done):

Firstly, the update now supports single sign-in with the Office 365 apps, removing the need to sign-in to Teams if you have already signed into another Office 365 app on your Windows Phone. The update also now lets users @mention other members of the company on teams and channels, which is something you would hope the app to have from day 1. More importantly, you can now share content from Microsoft Teams in other mobile apps via the Share page in Windows Phone which was another much-needed addition to the app.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Single sign-in with other Office 365 apps
  • You can now @mention teams and channels
  • You can open emails sent to a channel
  • You can share Microsoft Teams content in other mobile apps
  • Improved mobile support for Connector messages
  • Support for certificate-based based authentication
  • Support for mobile device management
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

And, lest you still wonder what Teams is all about:
