Microsoft Teams is updating the user experience for how in-meeting notifications are displayed. Notifications will now be consistent in design and show up in a consistent position (top center of the meeting stage) as bubbles stacked on top of each other. This will avoid overlaps and give the users a cleaner visual experience. In addition, users can also snooze repeat notifications like chat bubbles. This will reduce the end users' confusion and irritation with the notifications.
Available to everyone in Public Preview channel. We have identified a regression and rolled back this feature from public preview, sorry about the inconvenience.
How to enable
This experience will be enabled automatically during meetings. Thanks to this update, there will be less distractions and easier ways to understand what is happening during meetings (e.g. recording started).
Users will be able to see several in-meeting notifications, like
5 minutes left in scheduled meeting time
Waiting in the lobby
You microphone is muted
Transcription and recording started
Note 1: If you need information about enabling the public preview itself, see “Enable the public preview for Teams” below.
Note 2: To be able to use this feature, users need to be in Public Preview. Users in the same meeting not in Public Preview will not see improved in-meeting notifications.
