[When this will happen:]
Available now
[How this will benefit your organization:]
Earlier this year, we announced the public preview of the new Teams app for Windows. The preview version of new Teams was up to two times faster while using 50% less memory. Read the message center post MC533687 for details of our public preview announcement on March 27, 2023.
We have made notable progress since the launch of new Teams in public preview. New Teams now has full feature parity for almost all features including custom line-of-business apps, third-party apps, breakout rooms, 7x7 video, call queues, PSTN calling, contextual search in chats and channels, cross-post a channel conversation, and more.
New Teams includes support for Multi-tenant organizations (MTO) and multi-tenant, multi-account (MTMA), which enable seamless cross-tenant communication and collaboration beyond organizational boundaries across multiple tenants and multiple accounts.
