Microsoft Lists App Now Available to Download on Android

Microsoft 365 Apps

Microsoft unveiled its plans to launch the Lists app for Android at its Ignite conference back in November 2021. The Redmond giant has now announced on the Microsoft 365 Admin center that the Lists app is now available to download for business and enterprise customers from the Google Play Store.

First launched in 2020, Microsoft Lists is designed to help customers keep track of tasks or projects and track issues. It is a powerful alternative for Asana, Jira, Airtable, and other task management tools. This new Android app should make it easier for users to create and manage lists, access lists offline, edit list items, as well as collaborate on tasks with their colleagues while on the go.

Microsoft Lists for Android also lets users scan and upload documents as attachments to list items. Moreover, it provides ready-made templates that let managers create lists using pre-configured layouts for various scenarios. These include employee onboarding, asset manager, content scheduler, work progress tracker, issue tracker, and more.

“With access on the go and collaboration, you can keep everyone connected with Microsoft Lists. Start quickly with ready-made templates, add content to the columns, set priorities, share lists, invite teammates, and manage your work and information seamlessly,” the company explained.

Microsoft Lists for Android doesn’t support personal accounts

According to Microsoft, customers will need an Office 365/Microsoft 365 commercial subscription that includes SharePoint to access the Lists app on their mobile devices. However, Microsoft Lists for Android doesn’t support personal MSA accounts yet. The firm is working to make it available to mobile users with a free personal account, though there’s currently no ETA.

Microsoft has noted that the Lists app has Intune device management support with mobile device management (MDM) and mobile app management (MAM) policies. However, the Android version of Lists currently only supports “Require app protection policy.” The company plans to add the Conditional Access (CA) grant access control support later this month. This should bring the app on par with other Microsoft 365 apps like SharePoint.
