Starting mid-July 2024, Microsoft Teams will retire the ability to load websites inside the new Teams client when using the Website tab due to web security and privacy best practices. Users will be redirected to a new browser tab instead. EDU tenants will not be affected. Existing Website tabs will also be opened in a new browser tab. Encourage users to pin corresponding app tabs instead of URLs as website tabs.

Starting mid-July 2024 (previously April), Microsoft Teams will be retiring the ability to load websites inside the new Teams client when using the Website tab. These website links will open in a new browser tab instead. This is to better align with emerging best practices in web security and privacy while also improving the reliability of websites opened through this feature.
Please note that EDU tenants will not be impacted as we are still researching options on how to best provide a non-disruptive way to access websites for students and educators at a later date.
