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.

In case you missed it: Loop components in Teams chat

 As always, there are a lot of features coming out or being enhanced in the Teams client. Loop components is one of the new cool features released this spring. This is a feature allowing for better collaboration within a chat object.

Unless it has been disabled by an admin, it should be available to all by default, and really easy to set up. When writing a one on one chat or a group chat, just select the loop component you want to incorporate from the menu. At the time of this post, it's not possible to add components to channels, but this should be in the works.

A clever eye will notice that Loop components in a chat is stored as a file in the chat, and you don't need the Teams client to access the file. As long as you have the link (and access rights) you can access it through any web browser.

You can read all bout the feature in this post, and check out which Loop component controls an admins can change.
