From Microsoft Corporation:
Soon users who are already part of a private meeting chat will be able to add users to the chat.
We’ll be rolling this out in mid-December.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 59386.
How does this affect me?Currently, users cannot easily add participants to a private meeting chat thread.
This feature adds an option, Add participants, to the meeting chat header. Users who are already part of the chat thread will be able to add more users using this feature. The process works like it does in group chat.
Users added to via chat will be able to join the meeting. After selecting the Join button in the meeting chat header, these users will be able to send/view messages as well as view recordings and other meeting artifacts.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
There is no action you need to take to prepare for this change, but you might consider updating your user training and notifying your help desk.“
