Microsoft Teams to add support for muting notifications during meetings

Microsoft Teams adds a new option to turn off all in-app notifications during meetings. This new feature should help meeting participants pay attention to the speaker rather than being distracted by private messages and mentions.

Once the feature is deployed, users will be able to enable an option to turn off notifications before starting a meeting. Microsoft notes that those who find the notifications distracting will also have the option to turn them off completely for all meetings.

Currently, Microsoft Teams users who want to turn off notifications can either turn them off in settings, change their status to ‘Do Not Disturb’, or use system-level features like Focus Assist on Windows. Microsoft Teams is set to finally simplify that, and the ability to turn off notification during meetings will arrive in desktop and web apps later this month, according to the Microsoft 365 roadmap.
