Teams Meetings recordings now save to OneDrive.  Manage sharing permissions by going to OneDrive, then find your meeting in a folder named Recordings.  Add permissions for those not invited to the meeting as well as guests and external shares.

Teams is a collaboration platform that is part of the Office 365 subscription.  It offers organized IM communication, file sharing, video meetings, and Office and third-party app integration.  Use Teams within departments, for cross-campus communication, file-sharing, or online class meetings.
