Teams Messaging extension is not showing "choiceset" field in the android teams app and for IOS.

Occasional Contributor

I have created one teams messaging extension.

In which for input parameters in manifest file i have used one "choiceset" input parameter and text fields that is working fine in desktop teams and on browser, but when I try to use same teams extension from  android, drop down  for Choiceset is missing there.


And in IOS its not even opening the screen for input parameters.

Below code i have used for "Choiceset".


"name": "canvas",
"title": "Screen Canvas (Optional)",
"description": "",
"inputType": "choiceset",
"choices": [
"title": "AR Camera",
"value": "1"
"title": "Black Background",
"value": "2"
"title": "White Background",
"value": "3"

It is happening in messaging extension action?
For the choiceset, we have raised the bug. We will let you know the updates. Thanks
yes, the above issue is in the same teams messaging extension for IOS.
Thanks, I will check with internal team and update you.

@Hiral_Patel - Concerned team is looking into it. We will let you know once it is resolved.

Is there any update or estimated time scale?

@Hiral_Patel --

We have raised a bug internally. We do not have an ETA to share but we will share updates on this thread. Thanks for understanding.

@Hiral_Patel - Team is looking into that issue. As of now I don't have such updates to share. 


@Hiral_Patel - We came to know that this issue is not a bug but a feature gap on mobile. It will gonna take time to be available as it's a feature gap.

@Christopher Hoard - We checked this issue again. We can see the input choice set in Teams in Android devices. However, in iOS it's still not visible. Please do verify at your end.
