If the other day we were talking about limiting the time of meetings in Microsoft Teams, now we are talking about the great length of Teams links. This can be a problem when it comes to joining a meeting or getting it right. The next milestone for Microsoft’s service is that we can join a meeting via digital code.
This new feature was released last week in the Microsoft 365 admin center and is expected to be implemented from May. The month of April will be used to internally test this new feature.
Joining a Teams meeting with just a digital code will be a reality
Recently we also talked to you about improvements in creating and sharing meeting invitations. But, the Redmond giant has been inspired by Zoom and will offer an identifier for a meeting. This will allow us to join a meeting through a simple digital code and it will be available on all platforms, including Microsoft Teams desktop, mobile, and web clients.
“All meetings will have a meeting ID that is automatically assigned to a Microsoft Teams user and added to the meeting invitation within the meeting link. Meeting attendees can join the meeting by entering the meeting ID. For all meeting attendees, the pre-meeting, lobby and security will remain the same »the company explained.
The incorporation of the new experience to enter meetings will facilitate the usability of the platform. This makes it easier for users less skilled with Teams to quickly access the meeting despite not having the invitation link or the like. Although the feature will begin rolling out in early May, Microsoft noted that it should be available by the end of next month.
