Option to disable "New Meeting Experience"
As a result of "MC212453", we have confirmed that the "new meeting experience" in Teams meetings was forcibly deployed.
In the usage environment, it is difficult to use because it is a "new conference experience".
For this reason, we would like to have the option and functions such as the management center set to disable the conference experience.
The new meeting experience is terrible. I understand some people like it but it makes no sense to take away the ability to turn it off. Or was MS just looking to push people away from their own products?
Absolutely agreed! Having calls in a separate windows is very annoying, and not being able to disable it even more so!
Not having to enable this feature makes it easier to do different tasks compared to having this feature as default. Please add the option back to disable this feature.
Agreed, this "New meeting" experience is horrible. The new window will pop-up over all others if im in the middle of working on something and a call comes in. This has made everything more difficult to navigate and work. This also makes too many open windows as well as starts chewing up more memory.
Please restore this option and stop trying to force everyone to something that is not always better.

I use Teams for the phone functionality almost all day. I only have one monitor and I need the ability to chat while I'm on the phone, preferably without having to switch windows. Please bring back the ability to disable the new meetings experience.
**New meeting experience adds up a new window where we already have too many windows** generally to deal with as professionals.
It truly **doesn't make sense as we can't have many calls at a time** so why open a separate window to makes you wonder which one is the right one, click more _(worst UX decision)_ and lose your focus.
=> And when you turn it OFF in the settings, **it resets to ON even after Teams restart**. <=
Hope you did not plan to migrate towards _no choice at all_ with that "New meeting experience" that brings nothing extra to the experience and takes away practicality. On a personal level, I beg you not to.
