How does this affect me?

New experience for launching instant channel meetings: Users will now see the Meet Now button in the Channel header in the top-right corner.

Improved Teams meeting join launcher experience: When launching a Teams meeting from a link, users will be provided with clearer options for how they would like to join the meeting.

You may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
