@TGibson, here's the link to the public preview announcement for cross-tenant mailbox migration: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-365-blog/cross-tenant-mailbox-migration-in-now-in-p..., and the detailed documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/enterprise/cross-tenant-mailbox-migration?view=o365-w....
There are links at the end of the presentation if you want to register interest in the other features that aren't in preview quite yet:

Great set of features !
Is there news regarding the display of the tenant name in sharepoint urls, or renaming of a tenant ? This is a big issue that will prevent the merging of 2 tenants, because the name of the tenant is often the name of a company and this can become a marketing/political nighmare.

@Satyajit321 thanks for the feedback. We'll be producing the additional detailed documentation for the new features as they go to preview.

This is an good start and I look forward to more maturation in this space.
In regards to Acquisitions/divestitures, we'd love to see the ability to move all/specific data for Teams and Yammer with full fidelity. This is a gap which we cannot currently address in our M&A scenarios.
For longer term cross tenant coexistence, in addition to people search would love to see the ability for permissioning across tenant boundaries for SPO/Teams (adding users from trusted tenants w/o needing guest accounts etc.). Easier means to a unified EXO OAB would be great too.

@MelissaBathum Hi, very interesting...but I can't find anything about migrating personal chat history for Teams users.
I'm not talking about a chat in a channel in a Team, but personnal chat history.
It seems like it's stored in a hidden folder in the Exchange mailbox, but it seems like mailboxes migration tools can't access this folder...this is a huge issue regarding merging of tenants...any info on this subject ?

@MelissaBathum This is great news, who is eligible to request access to the preview.
Also when will documentation be available.

I did notice that this doesn't really touch up on migration from an Identity perspective - e.g. moving AADconnect and AD Users from one Forest to another but still keeping the same Azure/O365 tenant.
Is there any documentation around this?
