Join a team meeting in Teams

You'll know a team meeting is happening in a channel when you see an invitation to join.

It will provide a preview of any content shown and who's in the meeting. If the meeting is scrolled out of view in the conversation, you'll get a notification in the channel.

There are three ways to join meetings in Teams:

  • You can join from a message within a conversation:

    Join a meeting from a message

  • If you're working in another channel and your messages aren't currently in view, you can join a meeting from a notification that appears in the top right corner of your screen.

    Join a meeting from a notification

  • Or, if you're busy in a chat, you'll receive a notification that you've been invited to a meeting, and you can join from there.

    Join a meeting from a pop-up message

Both before and during the meeting, you'll see the meeting notice in your chat list or a channel conversation. The Meet now Meet now icon button also appears near the channel name in Teams.

You can join from the Meetings Meetings button calendar or from a meeting notice in a channel or chat.
