🏴󠁰󠁨󠀱󠀵󠁿 How to schedule, host and set up your own webinar with Microsoft Teams via PowerShell

Over the past year, we have found ways to create engaging virtual experiences at work. We have transformed spaces in our homes into offices, developed new skills for remote collaboration and, in some cases, used new technology to get our work done.

So in May, Microsoft rolled out two new features for webinars and PowerPoint Live in Microsoft Teams. These will currently be available for almost everyone to use.

No need to purchase a new license or product. These new features are included in almost all Office- and Microsoft 365 subscriptions.
