Chat with Users with Teams personal accounts

Microsoft will be introducing an update to Microsoft Teams to make is easier to chat with users outside of their organization.

With this update Teams users in your organization will be able to start a 1:1 or a group chat with Teams users who are using their personal accounts and vice-versa.  A user can be invited to a Teams chat either by email address or phone number.

 IT Admins will have the option to enable/disable this at a tenant and individual user level with two possible controls:
  • Control to enable or disable the entire functionality. If disabled neither users in your organization and users in their personal accounts will be able to chat with each other.
  • Control to define if Teams users with a personal account can start a chat or add users from your organization to a chat. If disabled, only users in your organization will be able to start a chat or add users with their personal accounts.
Look for this update to begin rolling out in early December.
