MC387038 (Updated) Call control with bluetooth headsets and speakerphones This feature uses industry standard communication protocol called Hands Free Protocol (HFP) and will work with most headsets that have an answer/end call button.

If users can use the headset to answer cellular calls with their cell phone, then it indicates that the headset supports HFP and the user should be able to use it to answer calls with Teams.

Mute control leverages industry standard mechanism so will also work for most devices that support a mute button.

At this time, if a user has two or more audio devices connected to their PC, answering the call using device button is not supported (this is to avoid activating the wrong device). This limitation will be removed in upcoming updates to Windows that will allow Teams to know which device triggered the call answer action,but we do not have an estimated time at this time.

In anti-malware policies, you can select specific file types to identify as malware using the common attachment filter. Any email message with attachments of these specific file types will be handled per the policy settings. You can configure this specific list of file types by selecting them from the pre-defined list in the policy properties in the Microsoft 365 Defender portal or by manually adding your own (custom) file types using the power shell Set-MalwareFilterPolicy cmdlet in Exchange Online PowerShell.

Based on internal research and best practices guidelines from industry and other organizations, we are updating the list of file types that are available for selection. Currently, there are 95+ file types in the list, of which 13 are pre-selected by default in the common attachment filter settings. We are expanding this list to cover over 200 file types, of which over 50 are selected by default.

After rollout, this new expanded list along with the default selection will automatically apply to:

Any new anti-malware policies that you create

The default anti-malware policy

The file selections in your existing anti-malware policies (enabled or not) will be retained and will not be updated automatically. You will need to manually update your existing policies with the recommended list of default file types (see below).

MC336858 (Updated) OneDrive and SharePoint: Access your Teams standard and private channel files This change will only impact SharePoint sites that are connected with a Team, and the “In channels” section will only be visible in the document library where Teams channels content is stored.

You should be aware that there will be no duplication of entries between the “In channels” and “In site library” lists. This means that, if a folder is associated with both a Teams channel and the document library, it will only appear in the “In channels” list.

This was based on customer feedback that duplication of entries between the list was confusing and made the “In site library” list unnecessarily long. The impact of this decision is that, if an end user expects to find a folder within the document library, they will now need to look under the “In channels” section.

You might want to notify your end users, update your user training and prepare your help desk as part of this change.
