Using the chat feature in a meeting with Microsoft Teams

Sharing video or your desktop during meetings in Microsoft Teams is pretty seamless. These days sharing video is considered a ‘must’ in online meetings. But we’ve also come to expect a streamlined experience that includes additional supporting features.

In this post we’re going to cover one of the most useful supporting features – the embedded chat. This is especially important when you need to share things like a URL or an image while maintaining the flow of the conversation and, without having to interrupt control of the desktop or video sharing.

In this article we continue our series designed to help you understand the options that are available in Teams Meetings, and to share in one central resource all the information you need to use Meetings in Microsoft Teams.

Opening the chat box

To use the chat feature during a meeting in Teams, simply click the Show conversation button:

The chat box will appear on the right:

Type your message in the chat box and click the Send icon to send your message. Naturally this includes all the features you’re used to in the regular Teams chat; formatting, attach, emojis, etc…

Note – Chat is only available after joining the meeting

It’s worth noting that, although the Chat with Participants link is displayed in the invitation page before joining the meeting, this will not work.

So keep in mind, if you click on this link, you’ll get a message warning that ‘Chat is not available until you have joined the meeting’.
