We will be rolling out a new feature in Microsoft Teams that will allow multi-device users to leave all of their devices at once when leaving a meeting. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 97397.
When a Teams user has joined a meeting using multiple personal devices they can encounter friction when leaving the meeting, including forgetting to leave the meeting on one of their many devices. This functionality allows Teams users to leave a meeting from all their devices with a single tap.
When this will happen
Rollout began out in early August and is expected to be completed by late November (previously early October).
How this will affect your organization
When a Teams user attempts to leave a meeting or call from multiple personal devices, there have been challenges to fully disconnect from the meeting or call on all devices. With this new feature, there will now be an option displayed to multi-device users in a call that will prompt the user to leave the meeting or call from all devices when selected.
This feature will be enabled for desktop, iOS, and Android clients.
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.
