Since we barely have any presence from the Azure AD teams here, sharing the news: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/07/25/microsoft-authenticator-coming-aug...

 

Some very cool features announced, such as support for CBA, using fingerprints, etc. Coming Aug 15th.

Would love to see an Azure group of some sort here.

Doesn't look like my Apple Watch is working with my MFA account. I've the new Microsoft Authenticator. Is there any tenant config which might prevent the Apple watch from being used to authenticate? Or has the Apple watch support not been added yet?

Does the new Microsoft Authenticator app also deal with the Office 365 MFA that is built in to Office 365 Enterprise Plan subscriptions?
