Microsoft Teams to get new meeting and calling experience in June

Microsoft plans to roll out an updated meeting experience, which will enable users to have conversations and calls in separate Windows during Teams meetings. In a Microsoft 365 Roadmap document, Microsoft confirmed that the feature is now timed for roll out beginning in June:

Multi-window experiences are coming to Teams meetings and calling. Users will have the ability to pop out meetings and calling into separate windows to help them optimize their workflow. These experiences can be turned on directly within Teams for PC and Mac clients.

 

In addition, Microsoft says that the upcoming Teams update will allow you to pin meeting controls such as mute, video, chat, leave, and others to the top of your screen. With this change, the Redmond giant aims to ensure that the meeting and call controls never block the underlying content.

1.Click on Avatar on top right of Teams and click Settings.

2.Check the Turn on new calling anD meetings experiences check box and then restart the Teams client.

While the existing current meeting experience will be retired later this year, Microsoft has provided a timeline as to  when we should expect the new experiences to be enabled:

  • June – New experiences are available and users can enable through settings.
  • July – Experiences are enabled by default and users can disable through settings.
  • August – Experiences are enabled by default and user controls are no longer available.
