Importantly, Microsoft advise that this will roll-out as OFF by default and users will need to turn on the new experience via the user setting: General > Turn on new meetings and calling experiences.
In the future this functionality will be enabled by default but by making this opt-in to begin with, Microsoft are providing users with extra time to become familiar with having meetings open in a separate window on their own terms.
The expected timeline for this is as follows:
- June – New experiences are available and users can enable through settings.
- July – Experiences are enabled by default and users can disable through settings.
- August – Experiences are enabled by default and user controls are no longer available.
As always, we will keep you posted on any changes.
