New Feature: Teams

MC216823, Stay Informed, Published date: Jun 19, 2020

We are bringing improvements to the browser-based meetings experience for those who join Teams meetings with Safari browsers on Mac.  Users will no longer be required to use Audio Conferencing to dial into the meeting for audio needs, but rather, can use their device to speak and listen.  As was prior, participants can continue to view meeting content being shared in their browser. We are also introducing group call functionality.

If your organization does not use MacOS you can safely disregard this message.
