Microsoft Teams Premium is an add-on licence for Microsoft Teams. Whilst Microsoft Teams is still included in the Business Basic, Business Standard and Business Premium licences, Teams Premium is an additional licence with an additional cost.

To purchase Teams Premium, you must have an existing Office 365 or Microsoft 365 subscription that has Teams included. The licences are per-user, per-month

What features are moving from Teams to Teams Premium?

There are several features moving from the standard Teams licence to Teams Premium. These features will have a 60 or 30-day grace period from the launch of Teams Premium (February 1st 2023) where they will still be accessible on the standard Teams platform.

The features moving to Teams Premium include:

  • Live translated captions (60-day)

Is there a free trial of Teams Premium?

Currently, you can get a 30-day free trial of Microsoft Teams Premium in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center. You will get 25 licences to assign to users during the free trial period.

Once the trial has ended, you will lose access to the features. If you wish to continue using Teams Premium, you will need to purchase and reassign licences to users.

Configuration of Teams Premium

Many of the Teams Premium features require an admin to configure the feature before it can be accessed by users.
