Feature update, User impact




Teams Rooms on Windows are making an alignment for Meet now and calling experiences to Teams desktop replacing “New meeting” control on the Teams room console with Meet (aka Meet now) and replacing “Dial pad” control on the Teams room console with Call. With Meet, users can start an ad-hoc meeting with a single tap and invite participants to it. Calling app provides users functionality to dial PSTN calls where available as well as enable entry point for P2P Teams calls, group Teams calls and P2P federated user calls.

This change is only applicable if the Teams rooms are running in Microsoft Teams only or Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams (default) modes. With this change, all P2P calling and group calling functionality that was previously under “New meeting” button is moved under Call. For customers that use SIP URI calling through Skype for Business, Enter SIP URI entry point is available in Microsoft Teams (default) and Skype for Business mode under Call.
Note: If you aren't using Teams Rooms, you can safely disregard this message.
This is rolling out on Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows only.
