In a world where we are always “quick to talk”, you will undoubtedly miss a few virtual chats. We can’t be everywhere at once, and that’s where a new feature for Microsoft Teams comes in. With meeting summaries, you can get carried away in a meeting you missed or go back to what’s been discussed. As Windows Latest reports, Microsoft announced the feature last year and is now rolling it out to some users, with the full rollout expected by the end of February. Summaries include the history of instant messages, notes, recordings, and transcripts, if available. “A summary of the meeting helps teams stay on track and get on with their work after the meeting ends,” microsoft says.
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.
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.
Today, Microsoft Teams has more than 115 million daily active users. That’s about 50% of Office 365 DAU. By July, when Ignite 2020 was virtually taking place, it was already north of 75. But while these figures reinforce and make credence to the story that Teams is the fastest growing app in Microsoft history, it doesn’t quite reflect how hard everyone has worked behind the scenes and how much innovation there has been, as Teams has become a channel for business continuity in unprecedented times. Think of all the features added in 2020: large gallery, together mode, hard mute, spotlight, skype consumer interop, breakout rooms, pop-out chat, pop-out meetings, pop-out calls and apps, dataverse, app studio improvements, tasks for Teams, the Yammer community app, the Lists app, the introduction of Teams displays, customers, apps key for meetings… it was a wild ride for the pros, let alone for the average daily user Here are 12 things I’d like to see in 2021. To note that I have intentionally omitted important things on the roadmap that we know will be 100% in 2021, including collaborative calling, the approval app and the insights app/headspace all of which will be fantastic additions. All links to Uservoices are present, so don’t hesitate to vote for them! – and if you have something you want to see in Teams that haven’t been asked for, go ahead and apply it!
Companies turned to videoconferencing software to stay connected during the pandemic while working from home, and as we prepare for the year ahead, this trend is likely to continue now that Zoom has become a household name. While Zoom emerged as the favorite video conferencing platform for consumers because of its ease of use and popularity, Microsoft has made tremendous progress in getting organizations to adopt their own collaboration solution, Teams. In March, for example, Microsoft Teams saw the number of daily active users (DAU) increase by 12 million over a seven-day period to 44 million. In October, however, that number grew to 115 million as the software giant continued to add new features to its collaboration software.
Microsoft Teams will soon have the opportunity to add a shared calendar to a Teams channel. This upcoming feature lets you create and share a channel-specific calendar so members can watch events. Teams automatically creates a new message, which will appear in the activity feed when a channel meeting is created.
Each user whose notifications are turned off will only see the event when they open the channel calendar.
