Mute Notifications During Meetings

Jan 21, 2022

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.
