How does this affect me?

Guest access in Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams enables end users to collaborate with people from outside your organization. If you decide to enable guest access, as administrator, you can grant access to group conversations, team chats, files, calendar invitations, and the group notebook. With this update, guest users will also be able to access Planner plans for any groups and teams they’ve been added to.We will begin rolling this feature out over the next few days, and we anticipate rollout completion by the end of April.
