Meeting Protection Support and Improved View Switcher for Teams Rooms on Android

The latest version of Teams Rooms on Android Update 3 (2023) includes new in-meeting experiences including:

  • Improved view switcher and front of room display controls 
  • Meeting protection support – End-to-end Encryption for meetings and Sensitivity labels

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling out in late November 2023 and expect to complete rollout by late December 2023.

How this will affect your organization:

The updated interface for the Teams Rooms on Android View Switcher menu provides users with more control of the front of room display(s) during a meeting and enables customizations including visibility of the meeting chat and selected meeting components displayed on the left and right panel for Front Row. IT admins can configure the default number of panels and default components on panel(s) using the local device setting.

Teams Rooms on Android devices applies the Teams Premium meeting security features including end-to-end encryption and sensitivity labels if the meeting organizer has them turned ON.

Note: Features need to be activated through the Meeting options in Teams Calendar or Outlook on desktop or mobile devices. To enable the features a Teams premium license may be required.

What you need to do to prepare:

If End-to-end Encryption is enabled, the Teams Rooms on Android will display a shield with a lock icon next to the view switcher. This icon includes a 20-digit group key that can be verified with other meeting participants.

Note: Together mode and Large Gallery are not available during End-to-end Encrypted Meetings, but meeting chat is permitted. If a Teams meeting is set with a Sensitivity Label, room users will be informed that the label has been applied when clicking the shield with a lock icon.
