Microsoft Teams Graph API Breaking Changes: Calls, Online Meetings and Beta


If you don’t access Microsoft Teams data via Microsoft Graph API, you have nothing to worry about and this is not for you. If you do, Microsoft just announced two breaking changes.

The same functionality is already available through different APIs. v1.0 APIs are not affected. Reference here

Microsoft are also adding/renaming new API’s

  • /communications/calls

    Thanks again!
