URL shortener for Teams
When using the "get link" option in teams it would be better to have an embedded link shortener. Pasting the link in email looks terrible.
We are currently testing this feature internally, and will share an update as soon as it’s available. To learn more, please visit https://docs.microsoft.com/MicrosoftTeams/sharing-files-in-teams.
Why not it generate a simple code of meeting like zoom do. any number like abc-efg-gfgf.
to much long link to join meeting in MS team is generated, that you can not publish on hard copy to join open online meeting. can not advertise etc.
I would like to use the URL shortner not only for Teams but also for all other Office365 products.

Is there any update on this feature? It has been 7 months since this was marked as "In Testing".

We are using Sharepoint events,the Link that is provided by Microsoft Teams Live is longer than the 255 max characters for the events meeting link.
A link shortener would fix this between microsoft products
Darren Jones commented
Microsoft is recommending we use some other service for shortening urls in conjunction with Stream and Teams live events.
This is in case you need to change the link.
Bit.ly doesn't allow you to edit links and tiny url requires you to pay.
So MS is giving suggestions that either don't work or give money to someone else.
Such a simple high demand item should be put in place ASAP.
Need more than 2 years to improve this feature? OMG!
how many more years till you release this feature?
Any news ???
Come on, this is a very simple fix. Let's get this done!

Copied URL are very long. please add an embedded link shortner.
I need to take teams meetings links and put them into our case management system for people to retrieve later. Unfortunately, the string fields can only take 255 characters. If you can't have shorter links, please at least include a url shortener within teams!

More important than the "appearance" of the URL,
1. The address line is broken apart when sent via MS Outlook.
2. The URL cannot easily fit into a printed announcement/flyer.

Hi, team. Just want to add to these comments. In our organization, our security team is blocking shortened urls from outside organizations like bit.ly and tinyurl as they are frequently used in phishing. Having something specifically from Microsoft that our security team can trust would be great!!!
