Change type:

New feature, User impact


We will be updating the Teams meeting roster (viewable on the Teams Rooms console) to closely align with the current experience available on the Teams desktop application. This will provide new capabilities such as, participant grouping for instructed meetings, sorting roster by raised hand, an integrated user search and the ability to ask others to join meetings from an invite or from chat.
In addition to this, we will be making the roster position on the console better align with that of the Teams desktop application while adding a touch friendly interface for participant options. Users will also benefit from a unified universal bar that will provide in meeting call controls for presenters and attendees for Teams meetings, large meetings support, and Live events (presenter only).
This robust Teams meeting update will also bring chat bubbles, Live reactions for meeting participants and lock meeting support for organizers. To help create an immersive experience for hybrid meetings, we will be making a major update to the front of room display experience to make it more dynamic, including splitting video participants across two in room displays.
This is rolling out on Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows only.
