As work has become more distributed, with employees often transitioning across multiple devices throughout their day, it is more critical than ever to ensure they have the right information at the right time, no matter where they are. Whether they are Information Workers in a hybrid work environment tackling projects at home and the office, Frontline Workers traveling between different sites or stores, or managers trying to stay up to speed on tasks and approvals between meetings, providing them with a single place to get news, take action, and stay engaged with colleagues, on any device, is now fundamental to a great employee experience.
That’s why Viva Connections, the gateway to a modern employee experience, is coming to Apple and Android tablet devices. For users on iPads, they can access Viva Connections today, while Android users can access Viva Connections on their device starting early April 2023.
Unification of Viva Connections across all devices
With the launch of tablet support, coupled with the new desktop experience of Viva Connections and existing mobile capabilities, Viva Connections has a quick time to setup, unified UI and experience across any device. Now, whether employees are on their mobile device, tablet, or desktop, the same critical news and information from the Dashboard, Feed, or Resources, are easily discoverable and actionable. This is a huge boost to ISVs and Line of business developers of Viva Cards and Teams apps, because users will start accessing Viva Connections on every device they have.
Easily deploy the Viva Connections tablet experience across the company
Since Viva Connections is part of Microsoft Teams and the tablet experience is an extension of existing capabilities, giving access to your employees requires no additional administration or overhead for IT departments. Employees simply need to have their Microsoft Teams app up to date and add/pin the Viva Connections app to their Teams sidebar.
