04 Jul What’s new in Microsoft Teams (free) | June 2023
You have been invited to a Teams meeting but when it’s time to join, there’s no meeting link to click. Instead, you have a meeting ID and passcode, but you cannot find where to put them. In this scenario it’s now easier to join the meeting as the free version of Teams supports meeting joins with meeting ID and passcode now. This blog post covers these new scenarios, and you can read about the other ways how to join a meeting in Microsoft Teams (free).
