Microsoft Teams: Change Teams Meeting add-in to install in a new directory MC799210 Published Jun 6, 2024

To prevent the classic Microsoft Teams uninstallation from removing the Teams Meeting add-in (TMA) files deployed on a machine during installation, admins must install the Teams Meeting add-in into a different directory than the directory used for a classic Teams installation. If a user manually installs the Teams Meeting add-in with Microsoft Installer (MSI) and specifies the same installation directory used by classic Teams, the TMA files might be removed when classic Teams is uninstalled. Typically, it is only necessary to specify the installation directory for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) installations.

General Availability (Worldwide, GCC, GCC High, DoD): Available now, starting with the release of new Teams on April 9, 2024.

 

Microsoft Teams: Custom backgrounds for Teams Rooms on Android MC798684 Published Jun 4, 2024

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 380671.

General Availability (Worldwide and GCC): We will begin rolling out early July 2024 and expect to complete by mid-July 2024.

General Availability (GCC High): We will begin rolling out mid-August and expect to complete by late August 2024.

Note: There can be a delay between when features are released by Microsoft and when they become available on a particular device model and make.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 396166.

Microsoft Viva: A new feature to manage users in Viva Engage (View-only mode) MC799633 Published Jun 7, 2024

Starting in July 2024, customers will see a new setting in the Viva Engage admin center to place individual users on view-only mode. View-only mode removes a user’s edit and create privileges across your Engage tenant.

Network, Engage, and Global admins can add or remove a user from view-only mode. The feature is in the Engage admin center under the Governance and Compliance tab. All admin activity related to adding and removing users from view-only mode in captured in Engage audit events within M365 audit logs.

In view-only mode, users cannot create or edit any content in Engage, including new communities, posts, comments and replies, and reactions. Once in view-only mode, the user will see an information banner in all Engage surfaces (web/browser, Teams and Outlook apps, mobile apps, SharePoint).

Users retain access to all available content in the network and receive notifications and digests. Content from the user remains visible to others in the network.

A user’s view-only status is not shared with anyone else in the network, aside from admins. The feature does not send any notifications to the user; customers own all internal communication around the use of the feature.

Admins can put any user in their network on view-only mode, including guest users. View-only mode applies per user per network. Access to SharePoint sites and files in Engage is not affected by view-only mode.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 395690.

General Availability: We will begin rolling out early July 2024 and expect to complete by late August 2024.

Microsoft Teams: Updated developer tools to share content from Teams apps to chats, channels, and meetings MC797476 Published May 31, 2024

Today, users can share content to a Microsoft Teams meeting directly from a standalone webapp (in the browser) if developers have embedded a Share-in-Meeting control in their webapps. Today, this control allows users to share content only to an ongoing Teams meeting (or a new ad-hoc meeting) on the same device. In this rollout, we will retain the control's existing capabilities, and we will enhance the control to enable users to share content to a meeting scheduled for the future. We will combine the Share-in-Meeting controls with the existing Share to Teams dialog box, so users can use one dialog box to share from a Teams app to Teams chats, channels, or meetings. We are also introducing the ability for users to choose Present Now from the dialog to present content in a Teams meeting. Developers can choose to opt into the features in this rollout. This rollout applies to Teams for Windows, the web, and Mac.

Public Developer Preview: We will begin rolling out early June 2024 and expect to complete by mid-June 2024.

Targeted Release: We will begin rolling out early July 2024 and expect to complete by mid-July 2024.

General Availability (Worldwide, GCC): We will begin rolling out early July 2024 and expect to complete by mid-July 2024.

 

Microsoft Teams: Channel cards MC797474 Published May 31, 2024

Microsoft Teams users will soon be able to get a quick overview about a channel using Channel cards. Channel cards will rollout across Microsoft Teams for desktop and web. Channel cards can be found by hovering over the channel name in the header or wherever a channel is mentioned.

Channel cards will provide information about a channel, including the description, last activity time, team name, and membership information. The card also provides a quick entry to notification settings, owner channel management, and the channel roster.

General Availability (Worldwide, GCC, GCC High, DoD): We will begin rolling early July 2024 and expect to complete by late July 2024.

 

Microsoft Teams: The "Notify when available" feature is now live in the new Teams app MC797120 Published May 30, 2024

The "Notify when available" feature, which allows Teams users to get notified when a colleague's status changes to available, is going to be available shortly in Microsoft Teams.

A Teams user in your organization can subscribe to get notifications of individuals' availability in two ways:

1) By right-clicking (or tapping "...") on a person in the chat list view, and selecting "Notify when available"

2) In a new "People" section, available in the Teams app Settings -> Notifications and activity -> People

To stop receiving notifications, you can turn them off in your app settings (#2 above).

Targeted Release: We will begin rolling out mid-May 2024 and expect to complete by early June 2024.

General Availability (Worldwide, GCC, GCCHigh, DoD): We will begin rolling out in late May 2024 and expect to complete by early June 2024.

 

Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams: Unified management of Teams apps in Teams, Outlook, and the Microsoft 365 app MC796790 Published May 29, 2024

In 2023, we introduced Microsoft Teams apps that are compatible with Microsoft Outlook and the Microsoft 365 App (manifest version v1.13 or higher). Before this rollout, admin changes made in the Integrated apps section of the Microsoft 365 admin center would only affect these Teams apps in Outlook and the Microsoft 365 app. Similarly, changes made in the Teams admin center would exclusively affect Teams. Starting in June 2024, we will roll out Unified App Management to streamline the management of these apps across Teams, Outlook and the Microsoft 365 App, so they are consistently available across all supported clients.
