(Update) Teams Chat with self

Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC390416 · Published Jun 9, 2022 · Last updated Jul 20, 2022

Message Summary

Updated July 20, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Users will now be able to chat with themselves. All the same chat functionality that works for chatting with others will work for the individual chatting with themselves. They will be able to start a chat with themselves by typing their full name in the To: field when creating a new chat. 

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88066

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling out mid June and expect to complete by late September (previously late June).

How this will affect your organization:

The user will now be able to send themselves messages the same way they would with anyone else.

Previously, the user wasn’t able to directly send themselves messages. There were workarounds, however, where a user could start a meeting with themselves and utilize the meeting chat as a self chat. Another workaround was if everyone in a group chat left, and the user was there alone. These will continue being part of the experience, but they are different from a chat with self.

A chat with self allows the user to type in their name in the To field when creating a new chat, and have a conversation with themselves. They can also access chatting with themselves from their people card.

What you need to do to prepare:

You may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
