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

Powerpoint presenter view now available in Teams Public Preview


Powerpoint presenter view is now available in the public preview of Teams. This feature will let you control a presentation, much in the same way you control a regular presentation. 

Among some awaited functionality are the thumbnails for easy access, and the notes section where you can read the notes for each slide.

If you pass control to another presenter they will also get the same experience. 

The presenter view is the default view when sharing a powerpoint directly from the sharing action in a meeting.

If you want to participate in the public preview to get early access to features like this, your IT admin need to set an update policy that turns on Show preview features. This is how to do it
