If your organization is looking to further enhance your communication experience, get Advanced Communications for advanced meeting customization and tools to manage your organization’s communication policies.

What is Advanced Communications?

Advanced Communications includes advanced meetings customization, tools to manage your organization's communication policies, premium manageability with custom policy packages, and custom branded meeting lobby to tailor your meetings.

  • Customize your meeting pre-join experience with your company's logo in pre-join and the lobby.
  • Create unifying meeting experiences with custom Together Mode scenes and custom organizational-defined backgrounds designed to the needs of your company and the meeting.
  • Tailored experiences with custom policy packages by bundling your own set of policies for users with similar roles in your organization using the Teams Admin Center or PowerShell. Each user will require a license in order to receive a custom policy package assignment.

Advanced Communications is available in all Microsoft 365 markets as an add-on to any paid Microsoft 365 or Office 365 subscription.

These features are temporarily available in public preview for all Microsoft Teams customers. To get the features after the preview, users will be informed in advance on how to continue their service via the add-on license.
