Several of our customers are a part of the new Office mobile app's Google Play beta and TestFlight programs. This mobile app combines Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint into a single app; for more information, see the TechCommunity announcement Introducing Office – Your new go-to mobile app for getting work done. You may have noticed that the Office app is not listed as a targetable app for iOS App Protection Policy in our admin console today. We are aiming to make it available for all tenants to target once the Office app becomes generally available.
 
Even though it’s not configurable in the admin console, note that Office mobile supports Intune app protection policies today. If you are a part of either of the preview programs, and want to target the preview apps to ensure the data being accessed is protected by app protection policies, use the following steps:
  1. For Android App Protection Policies, add the Office Hub, Office Hub [HL], and Office Hub [ROW] apps.
  2. For iOS App Protection Policies, use com.microsoft.officemobile as a custom app bundle ID.
For more details on how to target apps with your app protection policy, see How to create and assign app protection policies.

@Intune Support Team how to add this app to Intune as Managed Google Play app? We enrolled our Managed Google Play account in the preview :)

New Contributor
Our Intune environment already lists MAM apps "Office Hub", "Office Hub [HL]", and "Office Hub [ROW]", I assume as the Android instance of Office Mobile reuses a prior Office app app ID instance. So, can we assume we are covered at least for Android?
Regular Contributor

@Mal Greenhalgh we see the same behavior and the Office app seems protected by APP.

Microsoft

@Mal Greenhalgh @Peter Klapwijk - yes, select those instances for Android. We're updating the article to reflect this.

I have approved "Microsoft Office: Word, Excel, PowerPoint & more" in Managed Apps in Google Play, but it won't appear in the Intune Client apps list despite syncing many times. Any ideas? We are in UK.

Microsoft

@Calum Steen and @Peter Klapwijk - Intune doesn't support the non-production PlayStore channels for pre-release apps at present. As a result, apps like Office cannot be added to Managed Google Play until they are released to the production PlayStore. Intune will support this in the future, but I can't comment on a timeline.

New Contributor

@Calum Steen  you need to add a “custom app” using the app ID as per the link in the article (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/intune/apps/app-protection-policies). Once added you can assign it within an App Protection Policy.

@Ross Smith IV thanks Ross for this information.

Added Office Hub, Office Hub [HL], and Office Hub [ROW] apps to app both iOS and Android protection policies. however getting an error as "Enroll now" only for Android work profile, even though device is enrolled/complaint to Intune. Is there a CA as well which i need to look .
