Microsoft today announced the public preview of Microsoft Authenticator companion app for Apple Watch. This new app supports both Microsoft personal and work/school accounts that are set up with push notifications. After you setup your account, you can use this app to approve sign-in notifications on your Watch without using your phone.
Here’s how to setup this new experience:
- Make sure your phone and Watch are paired.
- Open the Microsoft Authenticator app on your Watch.
- Under the account title, tap the Set up button. If there’s no Set up button next to your account, no action is required! You can now approve sign-in notifications on your Watch.
You can apply for public preview of this app here. Microsoft mentioned that this app will hit general availability in the coming weeks.
