Updated July 28, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Microsoft Teams is updating the user experience for how in-meeting notifications are displayed. With this update, there will be less distractions during meetings and it will be easier to understand important information (e.g. a meeting being recorded). This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 96283.
Simplifying the in-meeting notification displays where users are informed about what they need to know or do without causing unnecessary distraction.
When this will happen
We will begin rolling out in mid-September (previously early August) and expect rollout to be completed by mid-October (previously early September).
How this will affect your organization
Notifications will now be consistent in design and in a consistent position when displayed (top center of the meeting stage) as bubbles stacked on top of each other. This will avoid overlaps and give the user a cleaner visual experience. In addition, users can also snooze repeat notifications, such as chat bubbles.
What you need to do to prepare
There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change. You may want to notify your users about this change and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
