Windows Hello support on Surface hub (External camera?)

Occasional Visitor



It's great that the new Creators update offers a single sign on experience for our users so they have access to all their Office 365 documents. The only niggle with this is users need to use a keyboard to sign in on a device otherwise setup for touch only. 


I know the Surface Hub doesn't support Windows Hello using it's in built camera but would it support a 3rd party Windows Hello compatible camera? It'd really improve the user experience for our staff.

It wouldn't support Windows Hello as that is an operating system login, whereas the sign-in to the Office apps by the user is to the app itself.
I do believe that users should be able to authenticate using the Microsoft Authenticator app on their mobiles to support selecting their user on the screen, however I don't have access to a Hub so can't confirm if this came in the Creators Update.
