Embed a model-driven app as personal app in Teams (preview)

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]

You can share an app you've created by embedding it directly into Microsoft Teams. When completed, users can select + to add your app to any of your team channels or conversations in the team you are in. The app appears as a tile under Tabs for your team.


  • This is a preview feature.
  • Preview features aren’t meant for production use and may have restricted functionality. These features are available before an official release so that customers can get early access and provide feedback.
