Hello.

I have added an outside guest account to a team (Outlook.com address). This person does not have an Office 365 account, but as I understand as of last week that is no longer required for a guest. This guest user is able to log onto the Teams desktop client without any problems, however, he cannot log into the android teams mobile app. Whenever he tries to log into teams on his android device it gives the error that it looks like his email is not a work or school account and won't let him in. Is this because the android app has not yet been updated for outside guest access or is there another problem I am missing?

 

Thanks

Correct,
Android Apps has not provided support yet for guests users

Thank you for your answer! Do you know when will the guest login be supported on Mobile clients?

As I understand it, the iOS app supports guest users as of last week - so I would assume that Android support will be here soon.

I have tested on IOS in the latest release (March 2018) still no guest login support, and Safari browser is not supported.  I have clients going to Slack because of this.

If you really need this mobile feature, support me. I've already created a request and I need votes for this. I know how hard it is when this feature is not available on the Mobile App and have to use desktop App.

@Danny Dooley 

Is this resolved yet? Can Guest users access on Android now?

@praveenhinduja   The Uservoice link provided in this thread indicates "this feature shipped at the same time with the desktop app guest access," so the request is completed.

Hi @ThereseSolimeno 

I have added a Guest and he isn't able to login using his Android phone but is working on the Desktop Client.

Let me know the best way to troubleshoot this?

Thanks in advance.
