Message Summary

This feature update to Cross Cloud Anonymous (CCA) Meeting Join in Microsoft Teams will allow users to join meetings as unauthenticated (anonymous) users.

  • This release expands the current unauthenticated (anonymous) meeting experience available for different tenants within a single cloud to all remaining Microsoft clouds (Worldwide, GCC, GCC High and DOD).

Note: This new functionality will only affect the Teams desktop client. Teams web client meeting join experiences will remain unchanged as they already support cross cloud meeting join.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 86311.

When this will happen:

Standard and GCC: will begin rolling out in early March and expect to complete rollout by late March.

GCC-H and DoD: will begin rolling out in early March and expect to complete rollout by early May.

How this will affect your organization:

This change only impacts your organization if Anonymous Access to Teams Meetings is turned on in your tenant. When enabled, this feature allows users in other tenants and other Microsoft Clouds to join meetings hosted in your tenant as unauthenticated (anonymous) users.

What you need to do to prepare:

Please familiarize yourself with Teams Anonymous Meeting Join and the relevant administrative controls available to your tenant.
