24:07 Planned maintenance: Skype for Business – Read announcement MC165785
— Another planned outage of Skype for Business – this time slated for November 28, 2018. Make sure to check your own tenant, as this is a targeted announcement and may not apply to you.

24:34 Dynamic membership support for Microsoft Teams – Read announcement MC165786
— You can now use dynamic Azure Active Directory (AAD) groups with Microsoft Teams. This allows you to mange the membership of your teams with rules based on AAD attributes. There was discussion on the show and in the chat room, about how this is good but your organization might have exceptions to the rules for membership. Also, there are some unanswered questions if everyone in your organization needs an Azure premium license, or just the administrators who create the rules.
