Summary:
Microsoft Teams introduces a new meeting option allowing organizers to control who can admit participants from the lobby. This update provides two choices: only organizers and co-organizers, or including presenters. The feature will roll out in August 2024, with no specific action required for implementation. Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 392836 is associated with this update.

Details:
Updated June 28, 2024: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Microsoft Teams: Currently, the capability to admit attendees from lobby and the capability to present are combined into one meeting role: Presenter. This frequently results in situations where meeting participants, who are not in charge of meeting management, are able to admit people from the lobby to enter the meeting, and the meeting organizer has no way to control it.
With this feature update, we are addressing this gap by introducing a meeting option for meeting organizers to be in control of who can admit people from the lobby:

The new option Who can admit from lobby will have two choices:

1. Only the organizer and co-organizers can admit from the lobby: This is the more secure option to be used for meetings where only organizers and co-organizers should be able to admit participants from the lobby.
2. The organizer, co-organizers, and presenters can admit from the lobby (default option): This mimics the current system behavior that presenters also get the right to admit participants from the lobby.

[When this will happen:]
General Availability (Worldwide): We will begin rolling out early August 2024 (previously early July) and expect to complete by mid-August 2024 (previously mid-July).
General Availability (GCC): We will begin rolling out mid-August 2024 (previously mid-July) and expect to complete by late August 2024 (previously late July).
