Microsoft Teams update helps you focus during meetings

Getting notified about upcoming meetings while you’re currently in a meeting can certainly be distracting, but thankfully Microsoft is working on a fix for this in an upcoming Microsoft Teams update.

According to a new post in the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, the software giant will soon add the ability to mute notifications during a meeting when using its video conferencing software.

Teams users will be able to mute notifications during meetings to help them focus on their current meeting when this new feature rolls out in December this year. However, they can also choose to mute notifications for all meetings or per meeting.

Focus time in Teams

In addition to allowing users to turn off notifications during meetings, Microsoft is also working on a new experience for the Viva Insights app in Teams that will extend the focus time feature.

For those unfamiliar, Microsoft Teams users’ Viva Insights app provides users with personalized recommendations that help them do their best work. These insights are derived by summarizing data about your emails, meetings, calls, and chats from Microsoft 365.

With focus mode enabled in Viva Insights, Teams users can progress on important work with focus music from Headspace playing in the background. As part of this new immersive experience, there will also be a notification, as well as a new focus mode page in the Viva Insights Teams app.

Microsoft 365 users can enroll or change their focus plan settings or even book ad-hoc focus time in the Viva Insights Teams app.

While the ability to disable notifications during Teams meetings will roll out next month, Microsoft’s new immersive experience for the Viva Insights app in Teams won’t be available until January of next year.
