Teams Mobile Feature updates for iOS

There are two handy features for the mobile client coming out quite soon. The first one is a better integration on the file storage integration. File-picker will soon (if not already for you) enable you to select different locations to attach files from. On my personal device, I can now pick from OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox. This feature should be rolling out to most tenants already The second feature coming out is the capability to hide (or show) Teams calls in the native iOS call log. I am looking forward to this as I have more than once accidentally called someone back with the wrong modality when I'm not in the office and not on Wi-Fi. Be aware that calls made prior to turning this feature off (removing calls from the call log). Already placed calls will remain in the list. The setting only applies to new calls. This last feature should be rolling out in September .
