Microsoft Teams disable Chat for anonymous users

Hi All,

I've seen the Message below in the M365 Message center. I did realize that i did not test that out. So here is the Blog Article about it.

In the Teams Admin Center (TAC) you can configure this Setting under "Meetings" > "Meeting policies" > "Participants & guests" > "Chat in meetings"

Or if you prefer in PowerShell

Get-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy -Identity Global | fl MeetingChatEnabledType

To enable Chat exept for Anonymous Users use the following command

Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy -Identity Global -MeetingChatEnabledType EnabledExeptAnonymous
Get-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy -Identity Global | fl MeetingChatEnabledType

To test it i have copied the Teams Link into a Browser Guest Profile. Then select "Continue in this Browser".

Now i have to add a Name to Join as Guest. I did choose the Name "Demo"

When i click now on the Chat symbol, i see that i can't chat with the Participants of the Meeting.

You can read chat Messages from other participants

The Problem is that this Setting also disables Chat on Android Teams Client.
