I am fairly new to teams and my search doesn't come up with a useable result.
We have an O365 Premium license. In the past, we invited customers via SkypeforBusiness for collaboration meetings. The customers were able to join via SfB or web app even anonymously. Since a couple of weeks, we tested Teams internally and made a quite nice experience with it. And now the discussion came up why we do need two different tools for collaboration.
So, the question is, can we use Teams for external web-conferencing as well? We tried around a bit and but it doesn't seem to work as we expected. First, the user must have to register to teams for attending a web-conference. Only web-conferencing, no channels, file access or more. Second, anonym participation (like in SfB) seems not possible anymore. Therefore, we called our support in Germany who told us that is not the scope of teams. I always need to add a user as a guest to our Azure AD to provide a license to the participant. If the guest already uses teams and owns a license this step is not necessary.
So my question: is this "works as designed" or am I just looking at the wrong settings within the Teams configuration. If so, this would be totally different from other collaboration platforms like SfB and WebEx. Is it not the idea to move from SfB to teams?

thanks for your help. I tried it but there might be still some problems. The configuration and some screenshots are attached as pdf.
1. I found the access via web which partly worked.
2. I was not able to join because "only people with access to this org can join" - see screenshot 2.
3. I am still not able to add participants to the meeting while I joined the meeting. It states "We couldn't find any matches".
I looked through the settings but don't find any options that might solve the problem. In the PDF the meeting, messaging and global policies are included.

Ok, that might be the cause. I changed some settings on and off so that it might take a while. I double-checked the setting with anonymous access which is activated. I will wait for a moment and test it from time to time.
Update will be posted here again.
Thanks @all for your support so far.
