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. This is associated with Roadmap ID: 167326

Renewed MVP status 2018-2019

It's the first of July, and all the existing MVP's keep hitting refresh in their inboxes today. I've been checking mine for the last two to three hours. Although I haven't received any notification or warning indicating I wasn't up for renewal, I know I can't be sure until I actually see the award email in my inbox.

I am honored to receive this award for the fourth time. There is a lot of work behind this, and being recognized for all the time and energy spent on my passion for technology is really appreciated. It is not something I take for granted, and for every year I know I need to put in a little extra.

Thank you to the MVP team at Microsoft, and congratulations to all new and renewed MVP's
