How this will affect your organization
If your organization has configured Graph connectors, any Microsoft Search user in your organization will be able to view search results from Graph connectors in clients such as Microsoft SharePoint, Office.com, and Microsoft Search for Bing.
What you need to do to prepare
If you had previously limited access of search results from Graph connectors to only users in Targeted release (for purposes of testing or validation) in your production tenants, ensure that it is acceptable for your users in Standard release to view those results.
If you plan to use this service, you may need to purchase additional Graph Connector index quota as utilization has become subject to billing. For more information on licensing and pricing details, please refer to details on Graph Connectors documentation site: License requirements and pricing.
For customers actively using Microsoft Graph connectors prior to November 2020, you will not be charged, until April 2021.
