Details:

Updated January 25, 2023: We have provided updated information in MC500902 (January '22).
We're making some changes to how Microsoft 365 Apps choose between the built-in client for sensitivity labels and the legacy Azure Information Protection (AIP) Add-in.

Starting with version 2212 in Office Current Channel and Monthly Enterprise Channel, all users of this add-in will be migrated to the modern, built-in interface for sensitivity labels in Office. This version is estimated to be available in mid/late January 2023. This will simplify admin configuration of sensitivity labels for Office documents and substantially improve end-user productivity from improvements to performance. For users who need to continue using the AIP Add-in during its support lifecycle, you need to deploy a new configuration for Office to explicitly allow the AIP Add-in to be used for viewing and applying labels in Office.

The new configuration setting is available for you to deploy via group policy or cloud policy. Use this to configure an exception to allow the AIP Add-in to continue providing sensitivity labels once the minimum version is deployed. For users in the Insider Beta channel of Office, the AIP Add-in will be automatically disabled by default.
