Configure live event settings in Microsoft Teams


Teams live events will be deprecated on September 30, 2024. We recommend that you use town halls instead. For details, see Plan for Teams town halls.

Use Teams live events settings to configure settings for live events that are held in your organization. You can set up a support URL and configure a third-party video distribution provider. These settings apply to all live events that are created in your organization.

You can easily manage these settings in the Microsoft Teams admin center. In the left navigation, go to Meetings > Live events settings.
