Teams Rooms on Android

There are a couple of new features coming to Teams on Android, according to the latest entries on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap.

First of all, Teams Rooms on Android devices will get all the Team Premium meeting security features if the meeting organizer has turned them on.

This includes features such as end-to-end encryption and sensitivity labels that will greatly enhance the security of the Teams meetings on every device. The end-to-end encryption is especially useful because Microsoft will then have no access to your Teams conversations.

The feature will be available to Android and Surface devices, and the rollout for it is scheduled to happen at the end of 2023, in December.

But this is not all. Teams users on Android devices will also have automatic updates, starting next month, in October, when the feature is scheduled to roll out.

According to Microsoft, you won’t need to manually update your Teams, as now administrators will be able to manage automatic updates to Android devices. This is an excellent feature, especially for those who have a work phone, and use Microsoft Teams to communicate.

Android-based Teams devices will receive automatic updates of the Teams app without the need for any manual intervention. Administrators can manage the automatic updates by organizing devices into update phases or pausing the rollout temporarily, if needed, from Teams Admin Center.


With these updates, Microsoft is making it easier for Teams users on Android devices to communicate, stay protected, and be updated with the latest features.

This might also be an initiative from Microsoft to increase the security of Microsoft Teams across all devices. And if we’re talking about just how vulnerable Microsoft Teams has been lately, the Redmond-based tech giant is surely taking steps to strengthen protection and stop phishing and malware.
