Popular web conferencing service Microsoft Teams is set to stop working on Internet Explorer 11. The change was announced earlier this year and is coming into effect Monday November 30. To continue using the service users will need to switch to Microsoft Edge to use Teams in a browser, reports the Express.

Besides IE11 losing Microsoft Teams support at the end of November, the browser will also no longer be able to access Microsoft 365 services in the future. On August 17 2021 the remaining Microsoft 365 services will stop working with Internet Explorer 11.

While this comes just a few months after the Legacy version of Microsoft Edge reaches its end of support on March 9 2021.

Microsoft previously said: "We’re announcing that Microsoft 365 apps and services will no longer support Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) by this time next year. Beginning November 30 2020, the Microsoft Teams web app will no longer support IE 11.

"Beginning August 17 2021, the remaining Microsoft 365 apps and services will no longer support IE 11. This means that after the above dates, customers will have a degraded experience or will be unable to connect to Microsoft 365 apps and services on IE 11.”

For degraded experiences, new Microsoft 365 features will not be available or certain features may cease to work when accessing the app or service via IE 11.

While we know this change will be difficult for some customers, we believe that customers will get the most out of Microsoft 365 when using the new Microsoft Edge. We are committed to helping make this transition as smooth as possible."
