enabling geospatial apps in teams

I have a client who needs a quick way of displaying samples on a map based on their associated latitude and longitude. With the new geospatial components released for general availability, I figured this would be the perfect time to roll out a Power App in Teams. I'm trying to follow this guide (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/geospatial-overview) but I cannot find anything bout geospatial features in my admin center. In fact, when I pull up features under my environment, nothing shows up. Is this a permissions issue, a Teams environment issue, or a 'me' issue?

However, since according to my understanding, the geospatial components like interactive map and address input require a premium license, I'm not sure if there's a way to leverage these in a Dataverse for Teams environment today. At least when I try and create a Power Apps Canvas app within a Teams environment that has the geospatial features enabled, neither of these components show up. It doesn't even matter if the maker has a Power Apps Per User license, looks like the app maker experience inside Teams isn't ready to support geospatial features just yet.

This may be a feature that as only recently been enabled in Microsoft Teams environments, but at least in our tenant I can see the Geospatial Services feature as the only available feature to enable:

Hey, thank you for sharing your experience with Dataverse for Teams so far! It's too bad that geospatial features don't appear ready for Teams yet. I can think of a lot of folks in my organization who could use those features for quick dashboards and data set visualizations. For now, I suppose I'll need to find another way to implement Dataverse-to-Map applications in Teams.
