Microsoft Teams: Start a Teams Chat with Distribution Groups, Mail-Enabled Security Groups, and O365 Groups
Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 Experts
From Microsoft Corporation Technical Bulletin MC408435 · Published Aug 1, 2022 · Last updated Aug 1, 2022
You will now be able to start a Teams Chat with Distribution Groups, Mail-enabled Security Groups, and O365 Groups. This feature will respect the limits on members in a group chat, currently set to 250 members.
Organizations rely on Distribution Lists (DLs) as a tool to create groups of users that mirror organizational knowledge and workflows. Bringing this awareness to target audiences for specific content will enhance the core Teams experience. Allowing our customers to leverage DLs can increase workflow efficiency and bridge the gap between legacy knowledge of organization structure and a new Teams structure.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 62354
When this will happen:
We will begin rollout in mid-August and expect to complete rollout by late August.
How this will affect your organization:
With this update, users will now be able to select Distribution Lists as an audience to begin a chat within Teams.
There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change. You may want to notify your users about this change and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
