MC494736: Microsoft Teams Flyout Enhancements

App flyouts are contextual menus found throughout the Microsoft Teams experience that enable users to launch installed apps and to discover and install new apps within the specific context the user is in. For example, when a user opens the Message Extension (ME) app flyout from a group chat, they are shown all of their ME-enabled installed apps which can be used within that group chat. Engaging with apps via the flyout allows users to remain in their flow of work and reduces confusion regarding the app capabilities within that context. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 110710.

Enhanced visual layout helps you quickly launch apps that you have as well as discover new ones to help you complete your day-to-day tasks in Teams.
