Enabling Microsoft teams for Microsoft 365 F1 users

Recently I had to implement the Microsoft 365 F1 plan for a case. The idea was to first create a demo so that I could show the different features. One of the things I wanted to show was Microsoft Teams. So, I created a couple of test users and assigned them licenses. Some got the Microsoft 365 F1 license, others got an E3 license. I wanted to create some teams and assign members to the teams. Everything went well until I used a Microsoft 365 F1 user to log in to teams.microsoft.com. Suddenly I got the message: You’re missing out! Ask your admin to enable Microsoft Teams for

This was unexpected for me since I already made some teams successfully using accounts which had an E3 license. Furthermore, Microsoft Teams is available for F1 users. After some searching it became clear to me that you must enable Teams for F1 users.

This is how you enable Teams for Microsoft 365 F1 users (please note that the Teams admin center is being moved to the new Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business admin center.  So, things could have changed):

Log in to admin center and go to Settings and select Services & add-ins.

Select Microsoft Teams.

 

Under Settings by User/License type use the drop-down menu to select Deskless Worker (Kiosk).

Here you can turn on Microsoft Teams

After enabling Teams for Deskless Worker (kiosk) the user with the Microsoft 365 F1 license could open.
