I know there are a number of feature improvements coming soon. Can you please reply about timelines for each of these features?

1) Ability for phone callers to be able to be placed in Breakout Rooms?
2) Ability for external users joined via Teams Personal Desktop App to be able to be placed in Breakout Rooms?
3) Ability to assign attendees to breakout rooms before the meeting starts?
4) Will Teams mobile be getting a button to leave a breakout room (return to main room), and vice versa?
5) Will an external user joined via Chrome or Edge Chromium be able to leave a breakout room (return to main room), and vice versa?
6) Announcements can only be made to all rooms. Is there functionality coming to allow announcements to individual rooms?
7) Breakout room delegation (ability to delegate an additional Organizer to set up breakout rooms, pre-meeting.)

We currently do not have update for the other feature asks, please use UserVoice to vote for Meetings related ideas and to suggest new features: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public?category_id=320662

Thank you.

Thanks, @Jan_Steberl. Are you at least able to say if the other items are things on your team's list of feature improvements already, for future updates?

Yes, majority of those feature asks are in our backlog. We will be regularly updating the roadmap.
