(Updated) Introducing macOS native notifications in Teams

(Updated) Introducing macOS native notifications in Teams

Updated December 10, 2020: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below.

With this update, your users will be able to choose their preferred means of Teams notifications delivery, either via the Teams built-in notification system or via their native OS notification system.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 66743.

When this will happen

  • MacOS 10.14 and greater native notifications: mid-December through mid-January

How this will affect your organization

Should your users wish to change notifications of Teams messages from the Teams app to the native Mac OS notification system, they can do so in the Teams Notifications settings:
Native notification
View image in new tab

What you need to do to prepare

When this feature rolls out, your user will see the new toggle in their Teams notification settings. There is no change in message notification behavior until a user enables the native OS notifications.

This setting is respected across all MacOS desktop clients (supported versions) that a user is logged into.
