Chat with Guests
I have added a guest to our AD. Guest access is enabled in teams. I can see the guest in chat and have sent them a chat message. I manually installed Teams for the Guest on their mac. They are not receiving my messages. Guest access needs to work in chats as well, not just in Teams.

when guest access will redeem his gust access it will redirect to login in team, if you already logged in teams then it will ask to switch organisation, since you are already logged in with MS account then it will not ask for login but if you are not logged in teams then it will ask for MS account and then you can access guest dashboard. you can use any MS account for guest login. if user don;'t have MS account then can't access guest access teams channel.
no meaning user received guest access in gmail or yahoo, user can't access guest access with MS account.
you can easily switch your dashboard to other directory to your organisation directory, on right side teams user profile, you will see access directory.

What does Phill mean when he says "switch guest users to be in your tenant"? How do I do that?
currently, you have to switch guest users to be in your tenant to see chat's with your org.
Shouldn't require that for user to user chat's.
Should be able to chat across tenants without switching profiles.
This needs to be fixed ASAP.
We really should be able to chat and call guests. Other video chat platforms such as Zoom and GoToMeeting allow to easily call guests who don't own the app. Guests should be able to join without having a Microsoft account. This is seriously lacking right now. It sucks to have to purchase a 3rd party video chat software when we already have Teams AND Skype for Business but neither can do what every other competitor can.
