MS Teams Contact Group for messaging

Occasional Contributor



I created a contact group in MS Teams.


I was hoping I could send a message to the contact group - but I can't find the option.

Or am I using it wrong?


Can some one give me an example for the use of a Teams Contact Group.

Not quiet. In Outlook, a contact group emails several people. But what does a contact group in Teams do?


so this group I created in MS Team, how do I use it to message multiple people?

Can I send a message to 'A Test Teams Contact Group'?


Does that make sense?

Ok, my understanding of these contact groups is not for MESSAGING but for just organization.

ie. you cannot sent a group message with contact list like email
