Fixing timestamp format in Teams meeting Transcripts files MC485792 · Published Dec 15, 2022
We will be rolling out a fix to update the timestamp format in .docx and .vtt Teams meeting transcript files to follow the WebVTT timestamp standard. More specifically, the current timestamp, for example, 0:0:0.0 --> 0:0:1.890, will be updated to 00:00:0.0 --> 00:00:1.890 after this fix gets rolled out.
Note: If your organization does not have a dependency on the timestamp of .docx or .vtt transcript files you can safely disregard this message.
We will begin rolling this out in mid-January and expect to complete by the end of January.
Microsoft Teams: Mention Everyone in chat MC485628 · Published Dec 15, 2022
Similar to how users mention individuals in chat, users will now have the option for “Everyone” within their options for mentions. After typing @, users will see the same people results they see today, but a new option, “Everyone” will be available. By selecting Everyone and sending the message, a notification will be sent to all users in the group chat based on their selected notification settings. Users can adjust how they are notified within their Teams notification settings.

We will begin rolling out in late January and expect to complete rollout to desktop, iOS and Android in late February 2023.
General availability - Receive all chats messages in all scopes MC485096 · Published Dec 14, 2022
The resource-specific consent (RSC) permissions model for receiving all message, originally developed for Microsoft Teams Graph APIs, is being extended to bot scenarios. This feature was available for the channel scope and now is being extended to chat scope. With RSC, conversation owners can consent for a bot to receive all user messages in standard channels and chats without being @mentioned.
This change is related to Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 100883
(Updated) Graph API for Teams Meetings Transcripts MC400569 · Published Jul 14, 2022 · Last updated Dec 13, 2022
Updated December 13, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
New org-wide application permissions and RSC application permissions have been introduced to make sure that apps can access meeting transcripts for a specific meeting. Resource specific consent (RSC) permissions, specifically enables admins to authorize users to provide consent to apps, so they get specific access to a Teams meeting’s transcripts to which it is installed to, rather than providing them access across the entire tenant.
This message is specifically associated with post-meeting transcripts access for apps - Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 95788 that allows authorized apps to access Teams Meetings transcripts once the meeting is over.
This API will be published to beta in end of July 2022 and to GA in late February (previously mid-January 2023)
