Today, if you want to join a meeting hosted in a different cloud to one of your tenant, you are directed to use the Teams web experience. We are improving the experience to allow users to join meetings across clouds from their desktop app anonymously.

Key points

  • Timing: We will begin rolling this out in mid-October and expect to complete rollout by late November. There will be 3 phases as part of this overall rollout:
    • Phase 1: Standard and GCC customers will be able to join meetings in GCC-High and DOD clouds.
    • Phase 2: GCC-High customers will be able to to join meetings in Standard, GCC and DOD clouds.
