Teams PowerApps no Barcode Scanner available



I'm currently "programming" a PowerApp in Teams.

Unfortunately the Barcode Scanner is not available.


I already activated in the advanced settings, but it isn't available in the Media section...


Does anyone had the same problem or some ideas how to solve it? 


Thanks in advance 🙂

I have not tried to use the scanner in a Teams app. I looked in my tenant and it looks just like yours. However, as with other controls, it seems you can copy the scanner button from a "regular" PowerApp and paste it into the Teams version. You can also use the Teams Date Picker in a regular app by doing the same thing


Nice to know, thank you @BrianS! I'll try it 


Edit: It worked to insert it, but unfortunately it doesn't scan... It says that it is only available on mobile devices (nothing new), but the PowerApp is opened in Teams aka Webbrowser in Teams

Is there a way to use it anyway? Because the Teams PowerApps can't be opened with the iOS/ Android Teams App...

I do not have a Team PowerApp with a scanner in it, but I just opened another Team PowerApp on my Android tablet. I have not seen an issue with opening the apps. If there is a problem - does this have to be a "Team" app? Do you need the Dataverse capabilities? If not you can create a "standard" PowerApp and put in in the Team as a tab.

Thanks, yes unfortunately it has to be a "Team" app... anayways thank you very much for trying to help me 🙂
