New feature, Updated message, User impact




Updated December 14, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
This new feature will enable in-room users to switch between multiple video cameras from console on Teams rooms on Windows. For rooms with more than one video camera attached to MTR, users will be able to switch between these cameras during a Teams meeting by selecting camera from the list of available cameras. If the device does not have multiple USB cameras set up with Teams Rooms device in the conference rooms, there will be no difference in experience.
You will still be able to utilize default camera setting for peripheral health reporting in Teams Admin Center.

Device administrators will also be able to select a default video camera that is used to join Teams meetings.
When a default video camera is selected, it’s considered critical to health of the device and Teams Admin center monitors and reports device health based on it.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 85818.
[When this will happen:]
This update is expected to be available mid-January (previously mid-December) in the Microsoft store.
