Meetings open in new windows with all meeting controls and functions available at all times. You can also easily share the content from the main Teams window. You will also have new Gallery options available.

  • Select your profile pic at the top of the Teams app, then Settings > General. (General should be what’s showing when you open Settings, so you probably won’t have to select it.)
  • Select Turn on new meeting experience.
  • Restart Teams by doing the following
  • Right-click or Cmd-click the Teams icon in the Windows task bar or Mac System Tray.
  • Select Quit (Logout is not enough) c. Start Teams again like you normally would.
