Keep your Microsoft Teams desktop client compliant by updating regularly

Keep your Microsoft Teams desktop client compliant by updating regularly

If you're using Microsoft Teams, it's crucial to keep the desktop client up-to-date to ensure compliance with the Modern Lifecycle Policy. The Teams client is updated regularly, approximately once a month, and the client automatically installs updates as they become available. However, update availability might vary globally. Users are recommended to remain on the most up-to-date version of the desktop client to enjoy the latest capabilities, as well as benefit from performance enhancements, security updates, and service reliability.

Users on Teams 1.4 or earlier build will see an out-of-date banner around seven days from the date you received this message, while users on Teams 1.5.00.616 or earlier build will see the banner after about 30 days. After January 9th, 2023, users on Teams 1.4 or earlier build will encounter a blocking page requesting an update to the latest version. To avoid these issues, it's recommended to update users to the most recent build as soon as possible.

The risks of not updating to the most recent version include missing out on important security and quality updates, reduced reliability due to missing bug fixes, and a lack of compatibility with the Modern Lifecycle Policy, which may result in unpredictable behavior and lost functionality. Additionally, client versions with release dates that are more than 90 days older than the current version's release date will be blocked since they are incompatible with the service.

Stay up to date and avoid disruption by updating your Teams desktop client regularly to remain compliant with the Modern Lifecycle Policy.
