Private meetings in Teams

A private meeting only includes the people who were explicitly invited when the meeting was scheduled. The meeting can include audio, video, and screen sharing. You can schedule a private meeting with anyone in your organization—whether they're on Teams or not.

Every private scheduled meeting also starts a new chat thread for everyone in the meeting.

To schedule a private meeting, click Meetings Meetings button on the left side of the app and then click Schedule a meeting. To make sure your meeting isn't open to an entire channel, select None under Select a channel to meet in. Then all you have to do is start inviting people.

A private meeting only includes the people who were explicitly invited when the meeting was scheduled. The meeting can include audio, video, and screen sharing from the desktop app. A private meeting doesn't appear in your chat conversation, but you can always join it from the chat list or the Meetings Meetings button calendar.
