Affected Workloads

  • Microsoft Teams


  • If your organization does not use Mac OS you can safely disregard this message.
  • This message is a follow-up and update to MC222156 in which we stated that we would be delaying this feature to do some additional testing.
  • Minimum Requirements: Client Build Version should be Mac OS – 10.15

When this will happen

This will begin rolling out to users beginning in early July (previously mid-June) and we expect the rollout to be completed by late July (previously early July).

What you need to do to prepare

When this feature rolls out, your user will see the new toggle in their Teams notification settings. There is no change in message notification behavior until a user enables the native OS notifications.

This setting is respected across all MacOS desktop clients (supported versions) that a user is logged into.
