Microsoft has announced that it has deeply integrated the Adobe Acrobat app into Teams. Just like the standalone Adobe Acrobat app offering, users will now be able to view, edit, export, organize, combine, convert compress, protect and access PDFs from Teams chats, channels, OneDrive, or SharePoint.

Therefore, if you use Adobe Acrobat as your default PDF file viewer in your organization, you will now be able to do this within the Microsoft Teams app. What’s more, users don’t require an Adobe Acrobat subscription once the admin sets it as the default PDF file viewer via the admin center. However, if you need access to premium features such as combine, protect, and export, you’ll need to have an Acrobat Standard or Pro account.

Check out the Adobe features that will be available to you in Teams below:

Adobe Acrobat further indicated that:

Adobe understands digital security is a key priority for organizations. PDFs shared or collaborated on are sent to Adobe Document Cloud servers in the region in which the user is located for transient processing and then deleted within 24 hours. The documents remain encrypted both in transit and at rest during this process. The modified documents with the comments are then stored in the original SharePoint or OneDrive.

Both Microsoft and Adobe Acrobat are working together closely to make the app deployment easier for admins through the M365 Admin Center and ensure that the user experience is at its best in general. Users should expect significant updates and improvements in the future.
