Chat Bubbles

Previously, Teams users needed to manually open a chat window to view the chat screen. Now thanks to this new feature, chats sent during a Teams meeting will surface on the screens of all meeting participants, making the chat more central to the conversation.

Key points:

  • Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 65948
  • Timing: we will roll this out beginning in mid-July and will be complete by late July.
  • Rollout: tenant level
  • Control type: user control
  • Action: review and assess

How this will affect your organization:

Chat has become a lively space for conversation and idea-sharing and offers an option for people to participate in the discussion without having to jump in verbally. But it can be challenging to pay attention to video feeds, presentations, and chats all at the same time.

With chat bubbles, meeting participants can follow chat on the main screen of a meeting.

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
