Meeting organizers and presenters will be able to prevent meeting attendees from turning their camera on to share video during a meeting. Currently meeting organizers and presenters have no control over whether meeting attendees can share video.
This feature is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap IDs 70620 and 70621.
When this will happen
Rollout begins mid-April and should complete in late April.
How this will affect your organization?
By default, meeting attendees will be able to turn their camera on or off to share video, which is the current experience.
There are three ways that meeting organizers or presenters may manage the attendees’ camera.
Before a meeting, the meeting organizer can set Enable camera for attendees to Off from the Meeting Options web page. By default this is on, which means that attendees can turn share their video feed. Note that this change does not mean attendees will be forced to share video.
