Microsoft Viva, the company’s new employee experience platform that’s available within Microsoft Teams is now expanding its reach on mobile devices. Viva Connections, one of the four Viva modules that the company announced earlier this year has now made the jump from desktop to mobile.

Viva Connections lets employees access relevant news, conversations, and other content within Microsoft Teams. “Viva Connections is the gateway for the employee experience, and offers a personalized, integrated mobile app that brings together news, conversations, key resources, and actionable tasks and items into single employee home that can be customized to include company branding and critical business applications,” explained Michael Holste, Senior Product Marketing Manager.

Microsoft has also announced the general availability of new partner integrations for its employee experience platform. This means that the Viva Connections app in Teams should now seamlessly integrate with several popular apps and services, including ServiceNow, BlueYonder, and Qualtrics, and Moveworks. The company also plans to add support for other partner apps such as Workday, EdCast, and Espressive in January 2022.

Viva Connections is included for free in all Microsoft 365 and Office 365 plans for enterprise. Last week, Microsoft announced at its Ignite conference that Viva Connections and the three other Viva modules (Viva Insights, Viva Topics, and Viva Learning) are now generally available with one single plan, the Viva suite with pricing starting at $9 per user per month.
