Did you know: Microsoft Teams will be enabling users to be able to view meetings and calls in separate windows along with other recently announced feature in June.

How this will affect your organization

Once available, users will be able to view meetings and calls in separate windows from the main Microsoft Teams client. Additionally, meeting and call controls such as mute, video, chat, leave and others will now be located at the top of the meeting window so that they are always available and never block the underlying content. This new experience will also include recently announced features such as 3×3 video, raise hands, and custom backgrounds.

This will roll-out OFF by default and users will have the ability to turn on the new experience via the user setting: General > Turn on new meetings and calling experiences.

Note: In the future we will enable this functionality by default, but we want to provide users extra time to become familiar with having meetings open in their own sperate window. As we move forward we will provide more details via Message center.

New meeting experience:

New meeting/calls control location:

Steps for Users to turn on the new experience:

Step 1: Click on Avatar on top right of Teams and click Settings.

Step 2: Check the Turn on new calling an meetings experiences check box and then restart the Teams client.

Note: To provide additional transparency we expect the new experiences to be enabled with the following timeline. This is subject to change and we will provide appropriate notice for each phase through Message Center as we approach July and August.

– June – New experiences are available and users can enable through settings.
– July – Experiences are enabled by default and users can disable through settings.
– August – Experiences are enabled by default and user controls are no longer available.

Know limitations:

– Meeting notes will launch to the main Teams client
– Support for full screen content viewing will be coming in the future
– Support for Invision Freehand Whiteboard will be coming in the future
