Microsoft Teams Updates

Some features will work across multiple cloud instances, including Microsoft 365 Government Community Cloud (GCC), GCC High (GCC-H) and Microsoft’s cloud for the United States Department of Defense (DoD).

While some of the features will work across a variety of platforms and cloud instances and become generally available in October, others will have a more limited reach.

Some of these upcoming Teams features are meant for the premium version of the app, which Microsoft released earlier this year.

Teams Premium costs $7 a person a month, with other packages available for businesses and personal Teams use.

A free version of Teams is still available with group calling for up to 60 minutes and 100 participants and 5 gigabytes (GB) of cloud storage, according to Microsoft.

Other updates included on this list include:

*Unique links for external presenters

*Text notifications for appointments

*Changes for watermarked meetings

Here’s a look at some of the most important Teams updates that start to roll out in October.
