    We are getting closer, and are still working thru some bugs, but hope to release this as part of a Public Preview pack in early 2021! (Windows 10 released with the December 2020 pack this week)

    You can learn more about the new Microsoft Teams Public Preview program here: https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreview, and Teams administrators can find documentation to manage which users will see the Public Preview option here: https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreviewAdmin

    MS,
    Great to hear there is testing going on for this feature improvement!! - I would add that if you guys could please make sure that we can move the location of the notifications for MAC OS (computer specifically, not mobile devices). One critical item to note is that when a MAC user receives an Audio or Video call the notification for the call appears in the righthand corner of the screen BELOW the MAC notifications. So there is not a way to answer the call or even see who it is from. The only work around is to put my MAC notifications on DO NOT disturb or use my phone or tablet to answer the call. This not ideal, when I turn off my MAC notifications I may miss Facetime Calls, iMessages, calendar alerts, reminders, and email notifications. Also it will turn my apple watch, iphone, and iPad on do not disturb as well. Thus I miss normal phone calls as they vibrate. A work around would be either better integration into MAC OS notifications. This would allow a user to put on do not disturb and fix the issue with calls appearing below the notifications. Another fix could include allowing the user to choose and/or move the location of the notifications (similar to the way outlook notifications and alerts work on the MAC). Possibly creating a smaller window that would be a "notification center" were people on teams a user is following would show when they were available, allow a user to answer calls, and change their status (e.g. click a moon and other icons quickly to go to do not disturb, away from desk, etc. ...i.e. change their status). Like with outlook, the user could simply minimize or X out the notifications window and they would not get notified. Possibly a "Pop-up" warning asking if they want to put on do not disturb, silence, or minimize (i.e. they just want to minimize the notifications until another one comes, or they want to change their teams status to do not disturb, or they just want to silence the notifications but still want people to be able to contact them).

    Anyway that is my 10 cents.

    Working on it,
    Dr. Shelby
