Technical details to follow... The article linked to in the post (https://aka.ms/GuestAcessHelp) is not available right now. I'm sure it will be by the time you read this...

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2017/09/11/azure-ad-b2b-collaboration-in-micr... is similar to the previous content.
Just tried to add a new guest user to a Team (like in the video) and it couldn't find the address provided in the directory. So I guess some client updates are still rolling out.

When I get a chance to add one to a team, I'll find out...
I tried using an external guest who is already part of an Office 365 Group that is team-enabled and was not able to sign-into teams.microsoft.com.

Same here. Can't find anything about how to enable guess access - certainly cannot add guests to a new Team I set up to test this.

I just went to my Teams and selected - check for updates, and it seem to get the latest 9/11 update fairly quickly.
09-11-2017 07:57 AM
After the update it say 9/11, and version Version 1.0.00.24351, but I don't see the the new features. So it looks like it's still not out as of yet. I tried online also and the new features don't show up. Is there something admin's need to turn on for the feature to be available to normal users?

looks like you need to add the guest first - via your azure account

I have plenty of Azure AD guest accounts (created for use with Office 365 Groups). Teams uses the same mechanism to create the guest users. The important thing here is that Teams external access only supports users with Azure AD accounts. As the announcement says:
"Later, we’ll add the ability for anyone with a Microsoft Account (MSA) to be added as a guest in Teams. If the guest doesn’t have an existing MSA, they will be directed to create a free account using their current corporate or consumer email address, such as Outlook.com or Gmail.com."

Very exciting, I guess I'll be logging into the admin portal looking for that new guest option repeatedly for a little bit :)

Main question if we allow guest access for entire tenant and after that that's only owners responsibility whom they invite (undesirable) or we may restrict/allow guest access on team by team basis. Didn't check new help carefully, perhaps it has something about that. Will start playing when the option appears.

Given that Teams is built on top of Groups and that the same Azure AD guest user objects are created and used, it might be that the restrictive access you can apply to specific Groups to stop people adding external users to them will follow through to Teams. Once the code becomes available, I will test this. See https://www.petri.com/external-access-office-365-groups for details.

I have trouble using Teams between to Office 365 Tenants.
Tenant A (My Company)
Tenant B (My Private Office 365 Business)
Tenant A Creates a Team and Invite a User from Tenant B.
Tenant B User got the Invite and clicked the link, Teams Website opens and asks to open Team Client. User Clicks open Teams and Teams Client asks to switch the Tenant. User click switch and Teams reloads but jumps right back to its own Tenant. If user trys to use the Web Version, site give me error with "Teams not enabled on your Tentant", but both Tentant has Teams enabled.

My guess is that you are experiencing a partial roll-out where one tenant has the right code to support external access and the other one has not. Give it some time...

Juan commented earlier that some admin controls are missing. The license control for Guests hasn't arrived in my tenant yet. But everything else seems to be in order.

One thing that isn't clear yet in the Capabilities comparision table tenant members vs guests, is whether guests will be able to participate in voice, video and meetings. The table says conversations and chat. But no mention of voice/video/meetings.
That's one of the first things I'll be looking for once I have all the bits in my tenant.
09-11-2017 05:14 PM
Just checked and now updated to You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.0.00.25151, Now can add outside users!
09-11-2017 09:33 PM
I've posted my notes here - https://ucgeek.co/2017/09/guest-access-microsoft-teams/
It's important to note it can take a few hours from enabling Guest Access to being able to acutally use it.
Hope it helps someone.

i was anticipating this release and i must say im a little bit dissapointed with the user experience.

Switching works fine for me. I think you just have to be patient and let all the bits get into place for Teams to work as designed. The mobile app has not been updated yet.

I don't believe that guests can use Planner because Planner does not yet support external access. When I click on the Plans tab, I am prompted to authenticate and am then brought back to my own tenant and the plans that exist there.
