Microsoft Teams Personal Features

Microsoft is adding new meeting and webinar capabilities in its Teams collaboration platform. The company will launch the new capabilities at the tenant level, and all these features will be available beginning in mid-March (via Petri).

The new Teams Pro service plan will deliver enhanced “meeting intelligence and webinar capabilities,” and organizations will be able to host Teams live events and Teams meetings for interactive online sessions. The company has not revealed details about its new plan yet, but apparently, it will come with some important updates announced at Ignite 2020. This includes the Webinar registration and reporting functionalities and other meeting options like Dynamic view.

Microsoft says these new capabilities will be enabled with a new Teams Pro service plan. Users will be able to add it to any Microsoft 365, Office 365, and Microsoft 365 E5, E3, A5, A3, Business Standard, and Business Basic subscription.

In addition, Microsoft detailed that the new Teams features will be enabled by default for all users with the licenses mentioned above. However, IT Admins will be able to manually turn it off or enable it for specific users in their organization.
