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.

Loop in Channels for Microsoft Teams

Loop has gradually been added to Microsoft Teams, and now the time has come for Loops in Channels

Loop components are collaborative components that allow users to crowd-source an agenda, track a group's action items, or take notes collectively. With Loop components, users can collaborate right inside a chat message or channel conversation. Everyone in the chat or channel can edit the component inline, and changes are visible instantly.

To send a Loop component in a channel, users can select "Actions and apps" in the post compose box, then select "Collaborate with Loop". They can then select the type of component they want to insert into their message, enter content into the component, and select "Send". Everyone in the channel conversation will be able to edit the content inline.

Loop components are saved automatically to the user's OneDrive, which means they can be found from in addition to Teams. Users are encouraged to give their components easy-to-remember titles to help them search for and find them quickly.
