Some exciting new capabilities for people using the free version of Microsoft Teams!

Users will now be able to schedule meetings in advance, use the instant private meeting "Meet Now" feature, invite people by haring the meeting link directly or via Outlook/Google calendars, manage privacy settings with meeting options including features like meeting lobby, and live captions for accessible meetings.  

 

This week, free meetings are now generally available on iOS and Android!

 

You can find lots of resources for the free version of Teams, here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/welcome-to-the-free-version-of-microsoft-teams-aea40713-3...

 

Here are the differences between Teams and Teams (free): https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/differences-between-microsoft-teams-and-microsoft-teams-f...
