The ability to mute notifications during meetings will be rolling out to Teams users in the coming weeks. This expands on the ability of Teams users to customize their notifications. It enables the users to turn- off their notifications during meetings, and thereby helping them focus. A user can choose to mute notifications when attending specific meetings or during all their meetings.

The current experience of receiving notifications during meetings is highly distracting and there is no easy way to turn off these notifications making it highly painful for users. This feature will introduce a setting to help the user turn OFF notifications during meetings. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 87452.
