meet now mobile
Please allow the ability to "Meet Now" on mobile. Desktop version on PC has that capability, but Android and iOS apps do not.
We are happy to announce we have released the ability to start a meet now meeting on mobile. You can access the meet now icon on the calendar tab of the mobile app.

Microsoft, please update the mobile apps with Meet Now and an ability to invite attendees outside your team with a copy/paste link. The government wont let us use Zoom anymore so we have to use your product. Unfortunately, Teams is inferior in mobile usability.

This issue has been around for few years now. Can't you solve it or why the feature is missing from mobile device?
This option will make it possible to work anywhere on our androids...come on Microsoft....why the delay?

I support this fully, must have!
Yes, figured a little work around for the missing meet now button on Androids. If you don't want to be sitting at your desktop and want to enable meet now on your Android phone, click on 'Meet Now' from your desktop then open up your Teams App on your Android phone and click 'Join Meeting'. Now you are in your own meeting and can wait for others to join you. The meeting will end when you return to your desk top and end this session.
Right now we can only make calls to individuals. Yes you may invite others but you have to do it one by one. In mobile specifically in Android, there is no option to meet now just like in desktop. Or at least call a Team
Some people cannot install the desktop app on their laptops because its locked out. So they have to use the mobile app. A must feature. Thansk.

I’m an educator n a parent of 3 teens. Currently all the computers n laptops r being used for my Kids’ Home based learning programs from their schools. It’s a stressful period during this Covid19 lockdown.
I’m trying to use my new IPad Pro independently as a unit to teach n monitor students’ learning without the help of a laptop.
Why can’t all your function buttons b uniform for computers n apps (phone / tablets / iPads)?? Less stressful to transition from 1 device to another. Thank u.

Totally agree, its hard to believe this function is still not available for android devices.

While we still await the addition, I FOUND AN ALTERNATIVE.
Click on the calendar icon to schedule a meeting. It could be scheduled to start in a few minutes time.
Make sure you click on "Share to a Channel" so the meeting can appear in your class/group. Then, you can start the live session immediately and other members of the channel would be notified to join.
Can someone please tell me how I can start a video conference call from my mobile through this ridiculously lacking app? This is why Zoom is the obvious choice you idiots!
please add asap.
so many of my colleagues are using ipads for teams
teaching from home

I should be able to organize a meeting from my android phone. Please add this important feature as sometimes I have internet problems at home and need to host a meeting from my mobile using data
