Disable chat for external guests in meetings
We'd like the ability to be able to disable chat for external guests (both authenticated and anonymous) in meetings.
Currently, we can disable chat via policy for our own users in meetings. However, external guests who join meetings can still chat regardless of what policy the meeting organizer has.

I second this! This should be able to define in a meeting policy. We are the host of some meetings where chat should be disabled for reasons both practical and privacy related.
The meeting policy setting for "Allow chat in meetings" under "Participants & guests" does not apply to guest from outside the org.
After a lengthy exchange with Microsoft Support, it is clear that the only option to disable chat in meetings for guests, is to disable it under Org-wide settings, and thus disabling it in all Teams rooms as well.
