On the Microsoft 365 Admin Portal, Microsoft has announced the rollout of an upgraded Dark Mode for Microsoft Teams. The new dark mode will cover more of the user interface, an upgrade from the old version that still has some purple areas in the top menu and left pane uncovered. Microsoft is also launching a new range of icons for the customer, designed to give them a more modern look.

The new Approvals app is now being rolled out for Microsoft Teams. The app allows people to create, manage, and share approvals for items, such as expense statements and other requests. You can create items for approval from a chat or channel or directly from the Approvals app within Microsoft Teams. The feature is now being rolled out and should be widely available by mid-January, according to Microsoft. When you submit an item for approval, those who need to approve it will be notified. They can then read the details included as part of the request. If the approval request was sent within a chat or channel, approvers will see a message with boxes to approve or disapprove the request.
Microsoft is finally bringing blurry backgrounds for video calls and meetings to its Teams app for Android. The move will align it with the Teams desktop app and the iOS app, which were given vague backgrounds in April.
In July 2020, Microsoft announced a new dynamic display feature for traditional video conferencing. This feature allows users more control over how they experience video conferencing. Dynamic view uses AI to optimize shared content and video participants. Users can also change the meeting view based on their needs.
Despite running out of support for a year, the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system (OS) still appears to have at least 100 million users worldwide. Microsoft has been saying for years that there are 1.5 billion users of Windows worldwide in multiple versions. “It’s hard to get an exact number of Windows 7 users because of the different methods used by analytics companies, but there are at least 100 million of them,” reports The Verge.
Microsoft Teams is a hub for teamwork, it integrates amazingly everything a team needs to be productive. Chats, calls, meetings, thread calls, video conferencing, content collaboration, and the ability to create and integrate apps and workflows – all designed to improve employee productivity in a unified suite of tools. But there’s one problem with Microsoft Teams: Some professionals find that they end up on multiple Teams accounts over time. You could have an account that you used with your own team, along with someone else with your customers, and another with your partners. What should you do now if you work for multiple organizations or if you just want to add multiple accounts to Teams? From now on, Microsoft Teams doesn’t support multi-account sign-in, and if you need to use Microsoft Teams with multiple accounts, you’re likely to end up in a non-productive situation. This is because you can’t check multiple accounts or switch through them, you need to sign out and sign back in to your accounts. But don’t worry. Until Microsoft adds support for multiple accounts to Microsoft Teams for desktop, here are some workarounds that let you use multiple accounts in Teams.
