Quick Tip;

Turn on the new experience
You do this via a checkbox in Teams Settings. Here’s how:

  1. Select your profile pic at the top of the Teams app, then Settings > General. (General should be what’s showing when you open Settings, so you probably won’t have to select it.)
  2. Select Turn on the new meeting experience.
  3. Restart Teams by fully quitting and restarting it again.

I love the new experience. Will it become the default or must we always turn it on in Settings? @PDostiyar 

@Jennifer_Harris  hey we do love it do, this give us advance and rich experience for now it is manual setting but it is one time effort once you change it you don't have to do it everytime but you still got the option to switch back to the old view and experaince.
