M365 Changelog: Mute Notifications During Meetings
MC312489 – Updated January 25, 2022: Microsoft has updated the post to reflect that this update only applies to the desktop client. It will be made available for web at a future date.
The ability to mute notifications during meetings will be rolling out to Teams desktop users in the coming weeks. This expands on the ability of Teams users to customize their notifications. It enables the users to turn- off their notifications during meetings, and thereby helping them focus. A user can choose to mute notifications when attending specific meetings or during all their meetings.
