    You’ll need to either move to the new free version (which has a limited set of features) or upgrade to a paid version. This article explains how to move to the new free version and its limitations: https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/office/switch-from-microsoft-teams-free-classic-to-microsoft-teams-free-4601d413-4419-40a8-8ca3-fe899ccdaa68 If you want to upgrade, see this link.

    Hi @3769863

    After April 12, 2023, Microsoft is retiring Microsoft Teams Free (classic), the legacy free Teams app for business. Microsoft is making this change to invest in a single free Teams experience across personal and small business. For over a year, Microsoft has only allowed new customers to sign up for the new Microsoft Teams (free).

    If you want to keep your data and continue using Teams, you can upgrade your users to a paid Teams license.

    Hi, I have the same question: "Hello, I would like to know if I could use Microsoft Teams for free after the Microsoft Teams exploration expires." Personally, I would need it for my business, but do I need to upgrade to a paid version?
