Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android | August 2021 Updates
Microsoft recently announced update 2A for Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android which is now available in the Teams Admin Center (TAC). Here, we will go into detail on the robust feature set in update 2A (and update 2). We highly recommend customers update to 2A, which is the latest version of Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android, to get the optimal experience.
Introducing room remote
Room remote is a new experience on the Teams mobile app allowing users to control Teams Rooms devices and select functionality from their personal mobile phone. Use room remote in your Teams app on your mobile phone to turn room cameras and microphones on or off, adjust volume, change the content layout and more.
New remote provisioning and sign-in experience
Once a Teams Room device is installed and powered on, IT Admins can complete the sign-in and provisioning process remotely from the Teams Admin Center.
Support for sharing via HDMI ingest
Now select Teams Rooms support screen sharing through an HDMI connection. Sharing starts automatically, but users can also control projection functionality through a new button located on the home screen of the touch console.
Auto answer for Meet Now
Teams Rooms can now be set to automatically answer a “Meet Now” call. This allows the Teams Room to be pulled into an ad hoc call without requiring the user to interact with the device to accept the call.
1080p resolution for outgoing video
Select Teams Rooms are now capable of transmitting 1080p resolution. Performance of this feature can vary depending on bandwidth and other conditions of the room and remote participants.
Additional features with this build include extending live captions to 1:1 calls, having the ability as a presenter or organizer to lock meetings by navigating to the ‘more’ menu, and hiding meeting titles in the calendar on certain Teams Rooms on Android devices.
We are thrilled to introduce these features to Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android. Click here for a full list of features and updates.
