Now in preview, this feature will enable Adaptive Card v1.4 for Message Extensions which will allow users to send refreshed, up to date cards that will update with new information.

  • This will allow different information and actions to be shown depending on the particular user’s role in a chat/channel.

The update will also allow User Specific Views and Sequential Workflows.

  • This will allows subsequent adaptive cards to be shown depending on the action taken by a user.

This will rollout on Desktop, and Web.
