Using Intune, install the Windows 365 app on physical devices

Some of your users might have physical devices that don't have access to the Microsoft Store to install the Windows 365 app. In these cases, you can install the Windows 365 app to their devices by using Intune app assignment process. By assigning the app to device groups, you can automatically install the Windows 365 app on their devices.
