Start Meet Now from Outlook desktop client (Windows)
January 14, 2021

Microsoft have made it easier than ever to start a Teams meeting though the addition of the Meet Now button in Outlook.

If you have both the Teams desktop client and Outlook desktop client installed on a Windows machine and you have the Teams add-in enabled in Outlook you will see a new Meet Now button in the ribbon of the Calendar Tab in Outlook.

If you click on the Meet Now button it will launch the meeting in Teams.

What do you need to do to prepare for this update?
You will only be able to use the Meet Now feature in Outlook if the AllowPrivateMeetNow policy setting is set to True.

When will this happen?
Roll out for this update will begin late January and should be complete late February 2021.
