MC271919 – With this change the default Notification Style (specifically for new users) will change to Native Notifications from Teams Built In. This will apply across Windows and Mac.
NOTE: The current default notification style for new users is Teams Built In.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 83062
When this will happen:
Microsoft expects this rollout to begin in late August and expect it to be completed by early September.

A user can choose to change their notification style to settings -> notifications -> notification style.
NOTE: Existing users who have already set their default notification settings will not be affected.
What you need to do to prepare:
There is no specific action required. You may want to update your documentation as needed.
