New features coming to Intune over the next week

Microsoft is planning to release the next set of Microsoft Intune features between June 22 and July 2. As part of this service update, customers using Intune standalone (cloud only) and System Center Configuration Manager integrated with Intune (hybrid) can expect the following new features:

  • Multi-identity support added for Word, PowerPoint, and OneDrive apps for iOS devices, enabling users to access both their personal and work accounts in the same Office mobile apps while Intune mobile application management policies are only applied to the user’s work account (Updated Excel app for iOS devices pending store approval)
  • Notifications added in the Company Portal app for iOS to notify users when a new app version is available in the App Store

In addition to the above features, the following new features will be made available for customers using Intune standalone:

  • Ability to install .appx apps from the Intune Company Portal website (already available within ConfigMgr console for hybrid customers)
  • Updated Endpoint Protection agent for managing Windows PCs
  • Ability for admins to view malware-infected file paths from Intune admin console (already available within ConfigMgr console for hybrid customers)

Also, as announced last week, customers using Intune standalone now have the ability to restrict access to the Outlook app based upon device enrollment and compliance policies and can restrict actions such as cut, copy, paste, and “save as” of corporate data between the Intune-managed Outlook app and apps not managed by Intune. These Outlook apps for iOS and Android are also enabled with multi-identity support. The features for managing the Outlook apps will be made available to customers using ConfigMgr integrated with Intune (hybrid) as part of the Intune service update rolling out between June 22 and July 2.
