The New Teams is here!

Per Microsoft's announcement, April 1st was the day that all remaining classic Teams users were updated to new Teams and the toggle switch was removed. This new version has become the default on all desktops, laptops, cell phones, and anywhere else that Teams is installed.

UIT has been working to make the required transition seamless. The automatic update on April 1 ensured the entire university has access to these new features without users needing to act. 

The new version of Microsoft Teams includes such features as an enhanced video conference interface, higher-definition video, and improved audio. New virtual conferencing tools include interactive whiteboards, real-time collaboration on documents, and breakout rooms for online lectures and group projects.

Learn more detailed information about what features are changing on Microsoft's Teams forum.

Invite everyone you work with to chat, meet, call, and collaborate all in one place, no matter where you are. 

Integrate with apps you already use, OneDrive, Box, Outlook Calendar, OneNote Notebooks, Webex Meetings and many more. 


Connect on your desktop, laptop, web, mobile. Carry the conversation with you regardless of your device.
