So overnight, the new May 2015 features (v 5.0.5161.0) have been launched (at least in North America)!

Below you’ll find snapshots of each of the new items below found originally here:

  • Ability to extend application protection to your existing line-of-business apps using the Intune App Wrapping Tool for Android (Intune App Wrapping Tool for iOS made available in December 2014)

You can download the new Intune App Wrapping Tool for Android here:

  • Ability to assign help desk permissions to Intune admins, filtering their view of the Intune admin console to only provide access to perform remote tasks (e.g. passcode reset and remote lock)

  • RSS feed notification option added for Intune admin to subscribe to be alerted when new Intune service notifications are available for their service instance

Can’t seem to track this down yet, however Intune Hybrid and O365 customers can get their account’s service instance by sending an e-mail to IntuneHealthRSS@microsoft.com

  • Improved end user experience in the Intune Company Portal app for iOS with step-by-step guidance added on how to access corporate email by enrolling for management and validating device compliance

This experience still looks and feels the same, will investigate further.

  • Updated Intune Company Portal app for Windows Phone 8.1 to provide enhanced status notifications for app installations

This experience still looks and feels the same, will investigate further.

  • New custom policy template for managing new Windows 10 features using OMA-URI

Notice the new OMA-URI policies for Windows 10

  • New per-platform mobile device security policy templates for Android, iOS, Windows, and Windows Phone, in addition to new Exchange ActiveSync policy template

You’ll now notice that each platform has it’s own MDM configuration policy that breaks apart the MDM settings from one blanket policy like prior.

 

  • Ability to deploy Google Play store apps that are required/mandatory to install on Android devices

We used to only be able to make app installs available in the Company Portal, however now we have the option to make these required installs.
