SharePoint for Windows 10 Mobile sheds preview tag for official release

The official SharePoint app for Windows 10 Mobile has exited its preview and is now available as a full release on the Windows Store. The app initially hit the store as a public preview in late September, allowing some to try the app out early. Microsoft recently shared on Twitter that the app has officially shed its preview tag, however, and is ready for prime time.

SharePoint for Windows 10 Mobile allows business users to easily access their intranet on the go to quickly view and share team files, sites and more. Here's a quick rundown of everything the full SharePoint app can do:

  • Sign in to your SharePoint Online sites. You can add multiple accounts, and easily switch between them.
  • Quickly find your sites. Check out the Sites tab, to see the sites you frequently visit and the sites you follow. Tap on a team site to dive into it. See site activity, navigate using the familiar quick launch navigation, easily follow or share the site, and work with your lists.
  • Check out recent and popular files. In a team site, get to your recent or popular files quickly to view or share them, and have full access to your document libraries using the new integration with the OneDrive app. Edit your files easily using Office Mobile apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.
  • Use the Links tab to find promoted links for your organization. Curated by your SharePoint admin for all employees, these links get you to the organizational resources and sites that you care about.
  • Search. Enterprise Search is available throughout the app and results are organized into sites, files and people.
  • Find and browse for people you work with. Tap on a user to get to their contact card and to see who they work with and what they are working on.

It's important to note that the app does require a business to have an active Office 365 subscription that includes SharePoint online. If your company meets those requirements, you should be able to check out SharePoint for Windows 10 Mobile now by giving it a download from the Windows Store. Also be sure let us know what you think in the comments!

  • Good news for enterprise users.
  • Good news for small business users.  Office 365 is getting so good.
  • Seriously. We're just seeing this now? How long has SharePoint been out?
  • I don't know if it's related to this, but I just noticed that "Sites" are an option in the OneDrive app if you add a business account. So you can finally open files on a SharePoint doc library from Office Mobile.
  • You're right. I hadn't noticed it appear there, I think it may be related, maybe it's using an App Service to talk to the SharePoint app (just guessing though)
  • Nice, my work uses SharePoint regularly so this will be really handy. Any word on whether it is continuum compatible?
  • Yep it loads up fine in Continuum. The UI isn't really adapted much for the bigger screen , you get the same view as on mobile which can see more items which is fine IMO.
  • Still no support for businesses that have deployed their own SharePoint servers on premise.
  • Right, actually it is still not possible to access the intranet of my Small Business Server, rather than a cloud service.
  • Shedding that beta seems pretty premature. The app doesn't look finished and it shows some sites as a normal webpage. The UI is also not great, yet.
  • This app looks pretty sad, assuming the screenshot for the article is current. It blows my mind that this app didn't exist long ago.
