If your organization or specific users in your organization have installed the Communities app in Microsoft Teams, they will begin receiving notifications in the Teams activity feed at the beginning of November. The rollout should be complete by the end of November.
What you need to do to prepare

Share this news with users at your organization and consider pinning Communities next to Chats and Teams. Ensure your corporate communications team is aware of this additional channel of reaching users across the organization.
