MC238782 – Updated April 06, 2021: Microsoft updated this post to ensure visibility. No changes have been made to the content below.

On Feb. 9, Microsoft published an MC post regarding a new Teams Pro service plan. To clarify, there is no change to existing product licenses with the addition of this new service plan. Rather, the service plan will be added automatically to Microsoft 365 and Office 365 E5/E3/A5/A3, and Microsoft 365 Business Standard/Business Premium licenses, and will enable users who are licensed for these SKUs to automatically receive capabilities rolling out to Teams in the near future. There is no action required by admins, and no additional purchase is necessary for Microsoft 365 and Office 365 E5/E3/A5/A3 and Microsoft 365 Business Standard/Business Premium licensed users to acquire the new Teams capabilities that will be part of the Teams Pro service plan.

Key points

  • Timing: mid-March 2021 New Teams service plan to be added to select M365 and O365 SKUs
  • Roll-out: tenant level
  • Action: For information only

How this will affect your organization
