How to Deploy Intune Company Portal App for Windows Preview Version

You can assign the app to a small group of test devices or users. On your device, sync with Intune and confirm that the Company Portal app has been installed correctly.

Note: If Company Portal from the Microsoft Store is also assigned to the same user/device, make sure you have the latest preview version. Company Portal automatically updates to the latest version targeted, so your preview version needs to be higher than the version available in the Microsoft Store.
