Axis for Microsoft Teams: add the Axis app to a Meeting

The Axis app for Microsoft Teams brings the power of inclusive participation to Teams, to enable collaboration in one seamless experience. As soon as you install the Axis app in Microsoft Teams, you can launch your Axis sessions and participate directly from the Teams app.

This guide can be used by Microsoft Teams users to add the Axis app to a Teams meeting.

⚠️ Please note that your tenant admin on the Microsoft Teams side must enable the Axis app within your 3rd party apps catalog. Unless Axis is approved, it won't be listed among the apps in your Teams Store. Check out the guide for Admins here.

⚠️ Microsoft does not support the ability for guest users to use apps in a Teams meeting, users must be logged into Teams in order to use any apps (including Axis).

⚠️ You can add the Axis app to a scheduled meeting only (not a 'Meet now' meeting).
