Frontline workers using shared Android devices can use Outlook, Edge, Viva Engage, and Power Apps

Companies often provide mobile devices to frontline workers that need to be shared between shifts. Microsoft's shared device mode allows frontline workers to easily authenticate by automatically signing users in and out of all the apps that have enabled this feature. We are announcing the general availability of Outlook, Edge, Viva Engage, and Power Apps on shared Android devices, joining the portfolio of apps including, Microsoft Teams and Managed Home Screen. Once signed into a shared Android device, frontline workers can immediately send and receive emails on Outlook to communicate with team members and their leadership team. On the right is an example of an inventory request in the Power Apps mobile app. With shared device mode support on Edge, frontline workers can now access any web-based app after signing into a shared Android device - they can easily resolve customer issues by bringing up a shipping app to check delivery status or searching internal wikis to answer technical questions. At the end of their shifts, frontline workers can sign-out easily with just one-click, removing all browser information on Edge or personal information on Viva Engage so that they can return it to the device pool for the next person to use. -------------------- Read more at Source: Microsoft Tech Community Microsoft 365 Blog
