Join Teams work meetings from Microsoft Teams (free) and vice versa

Microsoft Teams (Free) users can currently join Teams for work (or school) meetings only as guests, which requires them to use a browser and results in a sub-optimal experience. The new feature rolling out will allow these users to join Teams for work (or school) meetings in one click, without being redirected to the browser or asked to fill in their name/surname. They will also be able to continue collaborating with the meeting organizer and other participants via meeting chat after the meeting.  The feature will work in the opposite way as well, so Teams for work (or school) will just as easily be able to join meetings hosted by a Teams Free user with one click.

Microsoft Ignite 2017

Microsoft Ignite is just around the corner, and for the first time in a few years I am not going as a speaker. It's going to be interesting to join as an attendee, and being able to focus 100% on learning new skills and connecting with the community.

Although I'm not presenting, I will still contribute to the community as an MVP. I've been asked to follow a couple of very special sessions and blog about them live. These are high profile sessions with exciting news for the unified communications community.

Stay tuned to my twitter tag @lawedo and this blog for updates on where to find me and what I will be blogging about over at the official Ignite 2017 Community Blog as a guest.
