An update to Microsoft Teams makes it easier to receive calls from all your accounts

What you need to know

Microsoft Teams has updates available for iOS and Android.

With the Android update, you can receive calls from any Teams account, regardless of which account you are active in.

With the iOS update for Teams, you can join Breakout Rooms from mobile devices.

Microsoft has updates for Teams on both iOS and Android. The updates have no common features, but both include new features that improve the Teams experience. The Android update brings Teams to version 1416 /, while the iOS update brings Teams to version 2.3.0.

Here’s everything new in Microsoft Teams for iOS:

  • Manage meeting options directly from the meeting details tab
  • Better search results for meetings. Search terms like “next meeting”, “strategy meeting”, etc.
  • Mobile meeting participants can join breakout rooms
  • Teams uses your device’s theme setting by default

The biggest addition to iOS is the ability for people on mobile devices to participate in Breakout Rooms. Breakout rooms allow people to split into smaller sub-meetings, and mobile support should make that process much easier.

Teams on Android has only one new feature:

Receive calls from any Teams account you’re signed in to, regardless of which account you’re active in.

The ability to receive calls no matter what account you are active in is a welcome change. People often have trouble communicating across multiple accounts on Teams on mobile devices.

The updates should now be available to anyone using Teams on iOS or Android through their respective app stores.
