Updated January 12, 2024: We have updated the content below to show as intended. Thank you for your patience.
Microsoft Teams is now introducing enhancements on top of Teams Connect for chats. With the Teams Connect chat extended directory, IT admins can create an external directory of known external collaborators using their phone numbers. Once created, it will be easier for users in the tenant to:

Search external users by name and establish 1:1 or group chats with them.
View a company curated profile that includes information like a user's location, job role, or business unit and even assign an organization manager for these external partners.
In addition to these end user improvements, IT admins can continue to use all compliance and security features available with Teams Connect chat along with enhancements like restricting external chat to the list of users added via phone numbers.
