Great post and Video. Love the Surface Hub, only drawback is still the price...

This is great! Love seeing it in action. 

I work on a highly collaborative, yet dispersed team.  We have a Surface hub at one location that we use for all our daily standup meetings.  I would love to be able to switch to Microsoft Teams for our calls, however I can't figure out how to best "join"

Is your device managed by Intune that could be preventing updates?
