How to disable chat in Microsoft Teams meeting

Super Contributor

Microsoft is rolling out chat moderation settings which allows an organizer of meeting to manage participant’s ability to chat prior to, during and after a meeting. :stareyes:


There are 3 options for this setting:

  1. Enabled (default): allows participants chat at any time.
  2. Disabled: this will make meeting chat read only and no one can send messages in chat including the organizer.
  3. In-meeting only: participants can send message during the meeting only and the organizer can send messages all the time.
