Microsoft Teams Group Chat update

Microsoft has prepared yet another feature for the more than popular Teams. It seems that they are keeping themselves busy with so many already released and others close to rollout.

Dynamic View and mobile casting are some of the other elements that Teams has received lately and are now available for users everywhere.

New feature can connect other domains to Teams

Needless to say, Microsoft did it again with the unveiling of this new update. What this means is that users can now invite external partners to group chats.

Microsoft 365 Roadmap has announced the feature to be in development, with its launch date expected later this month.

Calling, as well as chatting with people from other organizations being already available, with the new support for group chat, everyone will be permitted to create massive meetings with 250 other participants that are using Skype, from distinct domains.

In order to achieve this, however, the IT Admins are required to enable external access policy. Managing external access in Microsoft Teams will be more straightforward, as the users were hoping.

Microsoft doesn’t stop here and has already promised another feature, due next month, which will allow the Teams users to record the meetings. PowerPoint improvements, as well as emojis and enhanced content sharing have already been patched.
