Updated April 29, 2022: To ensure the optimal experience we have postponed the rollout to GCC-High and DoD organizations. We will communicate via Message center when we are ready to proceed. Thank you for your patience.

We will be updating guest user functionality within the Microsoft Teams app. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88430.

A guest user can now leave an org from Teams app account settings. A guest user can also choose to hide/show guest tenants from the Teams account settings.
