That's about it... The button is present from desktop, both from browser and from app, but it is missing from a tablet app.

Most likely it is a bug within MS; is it?

Is it available in the same space in the other clients? Tried reinstalling? Remove app data?

@adam deltinger , yes, it is available everywhere and for multiple users, but the android tablet.

Seems unlikely that clearing data is going to make any difference. It has been like that from the word go, which was about 3 weeks ago.

There must be other people using android tablets...

Mystery solved.

Unlike desktop computer where you get the "New conversation" button from "Activity" too, from tablet you need to go to "Teams" and from there you will find the "new conversation" icon at the bottom right of the screen.
