SharePoint news – aggregation into Microsoft Teams chat is a new Office 365 feature. We’ll begin rolling this feature out in the next few days.
This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 21045.
How does this affect me?
It is possible to publish news articles within team sites, and when you configure a new connector for a Microsoft Teams channel for the group, you’ll see each published article automatically flow into the chat workspace as a new thread of the discussion. This helps with both awareness of team news, plus it helps as a discussion starter for topics being pushed as important news to all team members.
We’ll be gradually rolling this out to customers starting late January.
