The features under this offering began rolling out this December and will continue to roll out through January,: read the media release from the teams desk.
IT admins can enroll in the trial through the Microsoft 365 Admin Center and activate a free Teams Premium licensing trial.
How to enroll for the preview
Users can enroll tenants into the preview as a trial through the Microsoft 365 admin center by searching teams premium in the catalog.
“Once enrolled and activated, tenant admins will receive limited number of trial licenses good for a duration of 30 days they can assign to users in their organization.
“Admins can also choose to enroll in the public preview to gain access to Teams Premium features without assigning the trial licenses to end users, such as understanding the configuration options for the capabilities or assessing how they will be used in their environment.
“If a user is assigned a Teams Premium trial license and the duration has expired, the user will no longer have access to those Teams Premium features. Similar to user license assignment, once the public preview duration has expired IT admins will lose access to these features.”
