Microsoft will roll out a new service plan called Teams Pro sometime in mid-March. A message sent out through the Admin Center describes Teams Pro and what licenses it will require. Teams Pro will be available to organizations with Microsoft 365, Office 365, and Microsoft 365 E5, E3, A5, A3, Business Standard, and Business Basic licenses (via Petri).
The message in Admin Center doesn’t tell us a lot, but it does state that Teams Pro will roll out to Teams in mid-March and will include “meeting intelligence” and webinar capabilities.
Vesa Nopanen, a Microsoft MVP, shared an image of the message on Twitter:
As pointed out by ZDNet, the message does not specify if these features will be free or paid add-ons. ZDNet also highlights that there are options for webinars within Microsoft Teams now, but that they aren’t user-friendly.
Webinar functionality could be a major boost for Microsoft Teams. With millions of people working and studying from home, having webinar capabilities could make some people stick with Teams for presenting.
