    @馬場 勇真 Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

    Yes, you can view Azure Files from a smartphone using the Azure mobile app, which is available for both Android and iPhone. Here are the general steps for viewing Azure Files on Android and iPhone:

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/products/app-service/mobile

    The Azure mobile app supports iOS 11.0 and later and Android 6.0 and later.

    For Android:

    Download the Azure App:

    • Go to the Google Play Store.
    • Search for "Microsoft Azure" and download the official Azure app.

    Sign In: Open the Azure app and sign in with your Azure account credentials.

    Navigate to Storage Accounts: Find and select the "Storage accounts" section within the app.

    Select Your Storage Account: Choose the specific Azure Storage Account that contains your Azure Files.

    Access Azure Files: Once in the Storage Account, look for the section related to Azure Files. Here, you should be able to view, navigate, and manage your files.

    For iPhone:

    Download the Azure App: Go to the App Store on your iPhone.

    • Go to the App Store on your iPhone.
    • Search for "Microsoft Azure" and download the official Azure app.

    Sign In: Open the Azure app and sign in with your Azure account credentials.

    Navigate to Storage Accounts: Find and select the "Storage accounts" section within the app.

    Select Your Storage Account: Choose the specific Azure Storage Account that contains your Azure Files.

    1. Access Azure Files: Once in the Storage Account, look for the section related to Azure Files. Here, you should be able to view, navigate, and manage your files.

    Regarding your question about viewing the Azure portal from a site other than the web site, I'm not sure I understand what you mean. The Azure portal is a web-based management console, so it can only be accessed through a web browser.

    Hi,

    Yes, Azure Files can be viewed from a smartphone. You can access Azure Files on both Android and iPhone by using the Azure mobile app, which is available for download from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

    Once installed, you can log in with your Azure credentials and navigate to the Azure Files service to view and manage your files.

    Additionally, for direct file access, you may set up Azure Files synchronization with a cloud file manager app that supports SMB or use a VPN if needed, provided you have the necessary permissions and security in place.

    Kindly if you find the provided information helpful and it resolves your query, please consider accepting the answer. Your feedback is valuable and helps ensure the quality and relevance of the responses.

    The Azure mobile app does NOT seem to give access to any of your Azure files. It is a way to manage your Azure environment from a mobile device which is pretty handy I must say from a Dev-OPS point of view. It's too bad there isn't any way to get mobile access to Azure files like there is Sharepoint from mobile, but then again it's a file share in the cloud so is more meant for Desktop OS's.
