Details:

Microsoft Teams will soon allow tenant admins to control whether some users in their organizations can join any externally hosted Teams meetings. This feature can be used to protect potential data exfiltration from specific user groups within an organization. The rollout will begin in early February 2024 and is expected to complete by late April 2024. Users will be limited based on the policy configuration set by the tenant admins. Admins should prepare to identify the users (or groups) in their organization who may need to be regulated in terms of the external hosted meetings that they should be allowed (or prevented) to join.
Updated April 15, 2024: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
