Hi, 

When I got a repeated task I always look for a way how to automate it. 

Recently we've implemented Teams Rooms on Android and often I am asked to update the firmware from the Teams Management console. 

When I go to the Teams Rooms on Android, at each device I can see the "Non-urgent task" comment under the health of each device. When I click that, I am able to update the firmware and software (Teams App). I am also able to schedule it and choose "Firmware auto-update" which seems not to work. At least when I set it to "as soon as available" I haven't seen any difference. It still doesn't update automatically. By the way, the GUI is not very responsive to those options, so I am not even sure the setting has been saved. 

 

Can you tell me if there is any other way to:

  1. check the status of the meeting room and see if there are any updates waiting?
  2. each time there is a new firmware/software update do this automatically (or at least schedule it automatically)?

Any tips and tricks from the PowerShell area or Logic App/Power Automate?

If this is a canned implementation of Teams room then I believe that the devices should be automatically updating themselves. If you done anything to "manage" the computer, then you possibly broke the process.
