Index – Tech – Microsoft teams are not supported on multiple legacy Android systems

Next year, Microsoft will discontinue product support for mobile teams’ apps that will return to Android 7. If you have a major version of Android 5, 6, or 7 on your phone, you can upgrade to another operating system by September 2022 if you want to continue using the Teams app properly.

Discontinued support means that the app will no longer be available for download or upgrade from the Play Store after the specified date, as it will not be further developed by Microsoft. Because bug fixes and security updates do not reach teams due to a lack of version updates, some may not be able to use the program as intended.

Exactly Timetable the following:

  • In Android 5, product support will be discontinued from March 1, 2022, and in this system, teams will also disappear from the Play Store by that date.
  • On Android 6, teams will not have product support from July 1, 2022, however, the latest version will be available in the Play Store until September 2022.
  • In the major version of Android 7, Microsoft will bid farewell to the teams from September 1, 2022. The final version of the Play Store will run until December 2022.

Microsoft has not yet set a date for when teams will be useless on those systems. The Android system, which was released between 2014 and 2016, will notify teams every time they open the app to upgrade to the latest version if they still use it on their device.
