Microsoft has released a new update for the Lists app in Teams which brings the same commenting experience that was first introduced in Lists on the web last year. This feature is currently rolling out in Microsoft Teams across all platforms, including the web, desktop, and mobile.

The firm says that Microsoft Teams users should now be able to view, delete, and add comments on list items to collaborate with their colleagues. All the users mentioned in a comment will automatically receive an email notification and a link that will take them directly to the list item on the web.

To try out this feature, open the Lists app in Microsoft Teams, select the specific list item, and then click the “Comments” option. Now type the message in the comments pane and then press Enter to post it.

It is worth noting that the ability to add or delete comments will be available for people with edit permissions, and those with read-only permissions will only be able to view comments. However, list owners can choose to turn off the commenting capability for individual lists by heading to the List Settings page on the web.
