Updated October 21, 2021: We have updated the content below for clarity. Thank you for your feedback.
We will be retiring the Teams mobile support on Android version 5, 6 and 7. Instead we recommend that users upgrade to newer Android builds, which is where we will continue to build new features and experiences. We will also begin encouraging users to update to the newest version of Teams if they're running builds older than 1 year.
Note: We will provide reminders, via future Message center communications, to move to supported OS versions before the retirements.
[Key points:]
Timing:
Android 5 – The retirement of Android 5 will start in early March (3/1/2022) and complete by mid-March
Android 6 – The retirement of Android 6 will start in early July (7/1/2022) and complete by mid-July. There will be no active development and bug fixes for this OS version after that, but we will continue to provide last supported version in the play store till September 2022.
Android 7 – The retirement of Android 7 will start in early September (9/1/2022) and complete by mid-Sept. There will be no active development and bug fixes on the build after that, but we will continue to provide last supported version in the play store till December 2022.
Action: Upgrade to newer Android builds.
