MC221371, Stay Informed, Published date: Sep 2, 2020New feature, User impact
Updated October 27, 2020: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
We are changing the behavior of the floating call controls in Teams meetings so that they will always be visible for Android and iOS phones and tablets.
When this will happen
- iOS – we have begun rolling this out and expect to be complete at the end of October.
- Android – we will begin rolling this out in early November and expect to be complete by mid-November
How this will affect your organization
This feature makes it easier to access key controls such as mute/unmute. Users will no longer be able to dismiss floating call controls by tapping on the screen.
