Team news for SharePoint Online is a new features within Office 365 team sites. Rollout is planned for First Release customers through the month of October 2016 with worldwide rollout expected to complete by the end of November 2016.

What does this mean to me?

Team news will allow you to quickly create beautiful posts that are showcased on your team site home page – status updates, trip reports, or even just a highlight of an important document with some additional context provided to the team. Team news will be appear in both the SharePoint Online web experience for team sites and also the native SharePoint mobile app for iOS, making it simple for your team members to stay up-to-date with what’s important for the team and stakeholders anytime and anywhere. Additionally, team news will be added to additional platforms in the future.
