SharePoint mobile app for Android

Solution

SharePoint for Android is a new way to reach intranet content on your devices. You can navigate sites, view links to sites your organization has marked as important, view people profiles and search for people and content.

Download and Sign In

Once you’ve downloaded the app from the Google Play Store, sign in to SharePoint to access content from your device.

When you launch the SharePoint app, you might be asked to add an account. Adding a SharePoint Online account to SharePoint for Android follows the same steps as signing in to Office 365. If this is your first time signing in to Office 365, you can read more in the topic, Where to sign in to Office 365.

SharePoint mobile apps are part of an overall modernization of SharePoint. See The Future of SharePoint event, the Your intranet in your pocket blog post and The Mobile and Intelligent Intranet: SharePoint sites and PowerApps Office Mechanics video for more details on SharePoint mobile updates.

Support Information

SharePoint for Android requires Android 4.4 (KitKat) or later. It's compatible with Android tablets and phone devices. The app can connect to SharePoint Online in Office 365 (Enterprise, Education, Government and DvNext) and not on premises versions like SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint Server 2013. For the best experience, Office Graph must be enabled for your account and your organization. Office Graph is turned off for you, individually, when you turn off Delve for your account. To check if Delve, and therefore Office Graph, is turned off for your account, see Can I turn off Delve? Also, Office 365 administrators control access to the Office Graph for the entire organization. For a list of languages supported by SharePoint, see Language packs in SharePoint Server 2013
