December 2020 Newsletter – Week 1

December 2020 Newsletter – Week 1


November 28 – Updated November 27, 2020 to clarify the default will be off unless action is taken.

Starting December 18, Microsoft is changing how 1:1 Call recording is enabled. Currently, 1:1 Call recording is controlled by the -CsTeamsMeetingPolicy / AllowCloudRecording attribute. Microsoft is now changing it so that 1:1 Call recording can be controlled by its own policy. This means that after December 18, 1:1 Call recording will be controlled by the -CsTeamsCallingPolicy / allowCloudRecordingForCalls attribute.

By default this new policy attribute will be set to false, so 1:1 call recording will not work unless you change this attribute to true.

Minimum version required to run this feature:

  • Minimum desktop app version
  • Minimum iOS build:
  • Minimum Android build:

Breakout rooms allow meeting organizers to split main meetings into smaller sessions for focused discussions.
