Have meetings

You can see your upcoming meetings and join them on iOS and Android now. And soon you'll be able to do that on Windows Phone as well.

A team meeting is held online in a channel, so it's a great way to quickly go from a chat to a meeting.

Team meetings include audio, video, and screen sharing from the desktop app. Anyone from the team can join, and because they're online, you'll always have a meeting space and never need a room or projector.

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 calendar.

To schedule a meeting, go to your desktop or web app for now. For more information, see the desktop article How do I schedule a meeting?

Tap Meetings to see the weekly calendar for all your meetings that have been scheduled from Microsoft Teams, Outlook, or Exchange.
