Add third-party apps to the Files app on iOS

Applies to: Microsoft Teams.

Note: The Files app is exclusive only on devices running on iOS 11 or later.

Create and reach all your files from your iOS device’s Files app. Third-party apps include OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, or Adobe Creative Cloud. The files you save to the Files app on your iOS device display promptly, but you are required to configure other third-party cloud storage services to grant access to them in Files. 

Here’s how to add third-party apps on iOS:

  1. Download the app from the iOS App Store and sign in to it.
  2. Enter the Files app.
  3. Touch Browse (in the bottom right corner).
  4. In the top right corner, press More Microsoft teams More options icon.  > Edit.
  5. Enable the third-party app by swiping right on the toggle.
  6. Press Done.

Note: These are directions for iOS 13 and later. For devices running on iOS 12 or earlier, access the Files app then select Locations > Edit to import third-party apps.

Now, once you navigate to upload a file to Teams from your iOS device, you can then reach them from any of your third-party apps.
