Dear Community,

 

In a Teams meeting we can have 3 types of people

  • licensed O365 users
  • Authenticated Guests who login with a Microsoft account
  • Anonymous attendees who join the Meeting via a Meeting invitation link

Can all of these people see and participate in the meeting chat?

  • Does it depend on where the meeting was created e.g. - in a channel vs not in a channel?
  • If in a channel, does it depend upon if they are a named member of the channel?

Obviously, our preference would be that all Meeting participants, regardless of how they got there, or where the Meeting was created, could participate in the Meeting chat.

 

Thank you for your assistance!

Yes, all these kind of users can view and participate in a private meeting chat!

If it’s a channel meeting and users that’s been added outside of that Team ( internal members and guest users/anon ) , they won’t be able to see chat

@adam deltinger in addition to this question do you have information about who can see and  use the chat after the meeting is finished? Is there a Microsoft document available about this?
