An upcoming feature for Microsoft Search will make it much easier to find quotes and details from included Microsoft Teams meetings.
What you need to know
- Microsoft Teams meetings will soon be searchable based on what participants have said.
- The feature works with meetings recorded in OneDrive or SharePoint that had live transcription enabled.
The new search functionality could be available as early as this month, but that’s subject to change.
Microsoft Teams can transcribe meetings as they occur. The functionality makes it easier to follow live and also provides a full transcript of the meeting for later review. Soon, you’ll be able to use Microsoft Search to find specific meetings based on what participants said.
The feature appears on the Microsoft 365 roadmap. It could be rolled out this month, but the dates on the roadmap could be changed.
Here’s the description of Microsoft’s feature:
For a Teams meeting that was recorded in OneDrive & SharePoint and also transcribed live during the meeting, you can now search Microsoft Search to find the meeting recording file based on the transcript.
If you can search for a meeting based on what’s been said, it becomes much easier to find specific quotes or details. The Microsoft 365 roadmap item only specifically lists Teams for desktop.
Live transcription currently only works with scheduled Teams meetings, but support for unscheduled meetings could arrive as early as July.
