Microsoft has updated SharePoint mobile apps for Android and iOS devices.
The SharePoint iOS app now allows users to create news on the move. Clicking +Add in the News section on a team site users can now add a title, body text, images, embed documents, format and, of course, publish! The published story then appears across the news service as a recent story on SharePoint home in Office 365, within the personalised News tab of the SharePoint apps, and on the team site itself.
With the SharePoint Android app, users can now also use team news on the move. By tapping the News tab in the updated app, a list of tailored news is displayed via Microsoft Graph.
