We are happy to announce the general availability of the new Microsoft Teams app on Azure Virtual Desktop.
Microsoft Teams on Azure Virtual Desktop supports chat and collaboration. With media optimizations, it also supports calling and meeting functionality by redirecting it to the local device when using a supported Remote Desktop client. Users and admins can now experience and enjoy all the benefits of the new Teams app on their virtual desktop. The new Teams App has not only matched features of the classic Teams app, but has also improved performance, reliability, and security.
Moving forward, new features and capabilities as well as enhancements to existing features will be available exclusively in the new Teams.
The classic Teams will reach the end of support on June 30th, 2024, after which users will not be able to use the classic Teams and will be asked to switch to the new Teams app. Therefore, we recommend you update to the new Teams today.
Note: New Teams for Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) in Microsoft 365 Government clouds (GCC, GCC-H, DoD) will be rolled out at a later date.
