Mobile bar code support

Because Android is an open source project, any manufacturer of hardware for warehouse bar code scanners can build a device to run the Android operating system. A device is only Android-compatible if it can run apps that are written for the Android execution environment. However, a hardware vendor can modify and create overlays for the Android version that runs on their hardware. Microsoft cannot take any responsibility to ensure that a mobile bar code scanning app for Android is compatible with a manufacturer’s bar code scanning hardware and the Android version that runs on it.

The Warehousing app for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations has been tested with a selection of Android powered devices for bar code scanning. These tests only cover a sample of the devices that are available on the market.

As a customer, we recommend that you test the Warehouse mobile scanning app on selected hardware before you decide on the hardware that you want to buy.
