Microsoft Teams Update Required

In the second half of July, users who are on old versions of Teams (below version numbers containing 1.2.00.XXXX) will receive in-app notifications advising them to update to the latest version. After 28 days of receiving the first notification, these users will see a redirect page which will inform them that they are using an old version of the Teams desktop client. They must either update their client or use the Teams web version.

To avoid disruption, users should update the to the most recent version. Please note that users need to be signed in for updates to be downloaded.

To keep up to date with the current versions:

  • Users can manually download updates by clicking Check for updates on the Profile drop-down menu on the top right of the app. If an update is available, it will be downloaded and silently installed when the computer is idle.
  • The desktop client updates itself automatically. Teams checks regularly for updates, downloads any available, and then waits for the computer to be idle before silently installing the update.

We strongly advise users to ensure they are on the most up to date version of the desktop client in order to access the latest capabilities, performance enhancements and security features.
