To make things easier for Office 365 tenant administrators, Microsoft has released four new administrative role for Teams. You can now assign these roles to other people and have them take care of areas like Teams general admin or the more complicated area of voice and audio meetings and calling. It’s a sign of increased maturity in the Teams product.

Is it possible to assign Teams admin role to a group of specialists via security group than adding them individually? Thanks.

Nope, you cannot directly assign admin roles to a group. Microsoft is looking into supporting groups in the future, but when/if this will come I cannot tell.

 

You can of course expand the current group membership and assign the role to each member individually.
