Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams
Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.
Thank you for your feedback – Presence for Teams users is supported on Outlook/Office 2013+ and the latest Teams desktop build. Skype for Business is no longer required to be installed on the machine.

Last update I see from Microsoft is from Oct of 2018. What is the latest update?

Has this been pushed yet?
I see the the work to reflect people's Status from Microsoft Teams into Outlook email and Calendar was in the work since at least October, 2018.
This doesn't work for mac - I need to recommend that my organisation do NOT implement MS teams until this is fixed
this is now available under Teams settings.
Is there an update on this?

Still no update since 1 1/2 years?
Deepak Bajaj commented
Any update on this. Meetings are getting interrupted with instant message pop ups as people are not aware of the fact that you are in a meeting!
Working on it since Oct 2018?
Why the option “Register Teams as the chat app for Office“ not available on MAC???
Please update urgent
I agree, please expedite this integration. I have had more meetings interrupted by Teams pop ups in 3 weeks than I had with Skype in 3 years. The fact that Teams does not sync with Outlook calendar for presence (or overrides it) is more than annoying.

Do you have an ETA for this? We too are moving to Teams and it would be good to integrate Outlook & Teams.

Could you please advise on when this will be solved? Thanks
Thomas Blackwell commented
Not sure exactly when this was added, but this feature is currently available in Teams setting (see attached screenshot)

Was this issue fixed ? In my organisation we recently migrated fully from Skype to TEAMS but still I cannot see the people availability bullet before the names

Please gurry up on this it taking you guys forever ! this is really needed if you forcing everyone onto teams and not skype for business I am running double the application for the same purposes.

How can we force the "register Teams as chat app for office" as an admin for users that are Teams only? We are in co-existence mode at the moment migrating specific regions but i am unable to get the users to change this setting as it is blocked by admin and there is no way i can see to have an admin do this. Any ideas? Thanks.

I use MacOS, MS Outlook and Teams. This is a big gap. Please fix it.
Mergim Esati commented
I think this is a missing feature for MacOS. Teams & Outlook on Windows already have that feature.
Scott Brinley commented
It would be great to not have to remember to manually update my presence while using my Mac. Please fix this.
Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.4460
Microsoft Outlook for Mac 16.16.20 (200307)
