The documentation here 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/platform/apps-in-teams-meetings/create-apps-for-team...

 

states:

"Context" property is currently not supported and thus will be ignored on mobile clients

 

Is this really true? channelTab and privateChatTab have been around for a while? 

So what is the status of meetingSidePanel? I can't see how to add any App to the sidebar...

Hi @e_morling

That is correct about the mobile. However, in the article it states: Mobile clients support Tabs only in Pre and Post Meeting Surfaces. The in-meeting experiences (in-meeting dialog and tab) on mobile will be available soon. So it is coming soon

Meeting side panel is discussed specifically here

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/platform/apps-in-teams-meetings/create-apps-for-team...

In the meeting as well as in all scenarios, the app will be rendered in an in-meeting tab that is 320px in width. Your tab must be optimized for this. See, FrameContext interface

Hope that helps to answer your question

Best, Chris
