Microsoft Teams will support Targeted Release for commercial cloud customers.

With this support, users opted-in to Targeted Release will be the first production users to see the latest Microsoft Teams features and help shape the product by providing early feedback.
Prior to this, Targeted Release provided early access to OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, Office for the web, Microsoft 365 admin center and some components of Exchange Online.
What is Targeted Release?
Targeted release allows early access to high quality feature releases across Microsoft 365 apps and services, which customers can opt-in to prepare for the upcoming changes before they roll out to the rest of the organization.
Customers can choose to have a select set of individuals, or the entire organization receives updates early via Targeted Release.
All the users in Targeted release will have access to the preview of new Teams as per the MC post MC533687. To learn more about Teams support for Targeted release and list of latest Teams features in Targeted release, please refer to this blogpost.
We have decided not to proceed with the “EA”, to indicate Early Access, on the profile picture change and it is rolled back for the initial users who received it. Thank you for your patience.
