Office 365 Mobile Device Support


Tim Tetrick

Office 365 includes mobile device support for devices that support the Exchange ActiveSync protocol.  This includes Windows Phones, iPhones, iPads, most Android devices, and more.  Office 365 also supports BlackBerry devices via BlackBerry Business Cloud Services (BBCS) hosted by Research in Motion (RIM).  For more information on BBCS, see

Implementation of specific features varies by device and manufacturer.  See the following table for details…

Office 365 features available on different phones and tablets

Lync 2010 mobile clients are also supported on Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad, and Android.  They provide instant messaging (IM), contacts, and presence features similar to the Lync 2010 desktop client.

I created this short video that walks through the experience of using your mobile device with Office 365.  The video specifically focuses on the Windows Phone experience and some of the unique features and capabilities it provides.

For more information on the mobile device support in Office 365, see the Exchange Online Service Description under “Exchange ActiveSync (Mobile Devices)”.  Also see Use Office Web Apps on your Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone.  

To compare features and capabilities across the various Lync 2010 mobile clients, see Mobile Client Comparison Tables.
