Webinars coming to Microsoft Teams

It’s great to hear that finally, Microsoft is going to release an update to Teams to accommodate webinars and registrations. 

The rollout of the new feature will start to be released at the end of April 2021 and is due to be deployed by the end of May 2021.  Previously, to do any sort of event, users had to make use of Live Events, which required an Enterprise licence.  With this new webinar feature we are pleased that Microsoft have said it will be available to the following licences; Office 365 or Microsoft 365 E3/E5/A3/A5/Business Standard/Business Premium – which covers most users.

How will you know when you have the new feature?

When scheduling a meeting, your users will see the Webinar option on the Calendar drop down menu in Teams (desktop/web).


Users will be able to allow registrations for meetings and webinars for internal and external users.

What you need to do to prepare

By default, all users within your 365 account will be able to schedule webinars unless current policy configuration prohibits it. If you want to block any part of this, please speak to your provider today.

We will be releasing more information about this feature as soon as we have it.
