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.

Windows Server 2019 - Now in preview

For those of you who missed it last week, here is a link to the announcement of Windows Server 2019 Preview release: Preview post on

The big question for me, is of course if Skype for business Server 2019 will be supported on the Server 2019 upon release, but was not able to get a straight answer. The information available at this time is only related to Server 2016. But I am guessing that is because Server 2019 has not been available to test yet.

It took quite som time for SFBS 2015 to be officially supported on Server 2016, but the final releases of Wave 2019 are still months away, and I am hoping we will see an alignment of versions by then. After all, the client team has already made a statement that the client software will be supported on Windows Server 2019.
