  • Office 365 Government Customers

    Your journey to Teams is much like our enterprise customers' experience. As Microsoft Teams becomes generally available to your tenants starting July 19th, we encourage you to start with our Admin quick start guide. Our security and compliance overview will help you feel confident about Teams in your environment. To accommodate the requirements of our government cloud customers there are a few differences between the Government plans and that of customers on Enterprise plans. The following features will be unavailable, or disabled by default with the option for an admin to enable as noted:

Capability Reason
Call and Meeting Recording
Recording is dependent on Microsoft Stream, which will be coming to Government plans in the future.
Apps
Apps (Bots, Tabs, Connectors) will not be available initially, but we are working on making these available once all their components can meet the FedRAMP Moderate compliance bar.
Email a Channel
Current architecture not supported in the government plans.
Unified Presence
We are finishing work for our enterprise customers first for this important feature. This will arrive to government customers in the future.
Email Notifications
Current architecture not supported in the government plans. Work is ongoing to bring this feature to government customers in the future.
Giphy
Disabled by default, but can be enabled by an admin. Please note that Giphy does send gif search terms outside of the compliance boundary.
