Microsoft's Next Intune Feature Rollout This Week

Microsoft's Next Intune Feature Rollout This Week

Over the next few days, Microsoft Intune customers can expect some new features to show up. In addition to the new iOS and Android capabilities announced last week, Microsoft will be implementing some additional enhancements throughout this week.

For those using Microsoft Intune with System Center Configuration Manager:

  • Multi-identity support added for Word, PowerPoint, and OneDrive apps for iOS devices. This new functionality will allow users to access both their personal and work accounts in the same Office mobile apps while Intune mobile application management policies are only applied to the user's work account (Updated Excel app for iOS devices pending store approval).

  • Notifications added in the Company Portal app for iOS to notify users when a new app version is available in the App Store.

And, for those using Microsoft Intune only (no ConfigMgr integration):

  • Ability to install .appx apps from the Intune Company Portal website (already available within ConfigMgr console for hybrid customers).

  • Updated Endpoint Protection agent for managing Windows PCs.

  • Ability for admins to view malware-infected file paths from Intune admin console (already available within ConfigMgr console for hybrid customers).

Microsoft continues to rollout new Intune features at a break-neck pace. The MDM market is definitely heating up with other vendors trying to catch the wave through improvements, consolidations, and acquisitions. But, few have shown they are capable of keeping pace with Microsoft. The software company continues to lead the MDM market.
