Teams phones have been given several features this month that Teams users know on smartphones and PCs. Every month, Microsoft collects a list of all the new features for Teams phones. These special devices allow people to use Teams through hardware like the Lenovo ThinkSmart View. Some of this month’s new features bring functionality to Teams phones already available on Microsoft Teams for smartphones, tablets, and PCs, such as adding or transferring a call to a device. Microsoft outlines the new features in a Tech Community post. Support for transferring and adding calls to devices was rolled out this month. If you’re on a call on another device, your Teams phone will ask you to connect the device or add it to the call. This functionality was already supported by the Teams apps for phones and computers, so it’s a nice addition to Teams phones.
Microsoft has been busy with MS Teams in recent months. At the beginning of May 2021, the big M introduced a new casting feature for Teams. Now Microsoft is implementing a new call layout for Teams. The Twitter user Mr. Bolem was one of the first Teams users to notice a new call layout in the app. He tweeted about the changes on his Twitter page: The highly anticipated # MicrosoftTeams call layout is here! So much simpler, everything you need without jumping to different tabs. Forwarding options set from the same panel, no more clicking multiple times to make the Calls visible option hidden in the settings. Worth the wait!
Microsoft just announced a whole host of new capabilities for Teams phones. The March 2021 update provides an enhanced meeting experience, support for multi-cloud logins, a simplified sign-in experience for users, and many of the added features help end users and IT administrators stay connected. First, Microsoft Teams phones now support a simplified sign-in experience, making it easier for users to get started. IT administrators and end users now see a code when a device is turned on, which can be used to quickly log in to the phone via a smartphone, PC or web browser.
It’s no secret that Microsoft Teams has proven itself to be a major driver of digital transformation, enabling employees of any size company to collaborate on projects and share ideas, as well as communicate through instant messaging, video collaboration, and voice calls. But while many progressive organizations are jumping on board the digital transformation train to meet the challenges of our dynamic global economy, the whole process can quickly turn sour if employees don’t apply the new technology.
Remote working has been on the rise for a while, but the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated this trend. A recent survey by 451 Research found that 67% of organisations expect the remote working policy to remain in place permanently or in the long term. Many large international companies are considering closing some of their office locations and switching to a permanent model for remote working. All this strengthens the case for technology investment to support the more dispersed workforce that companies expect to manage in the future.
Microsoft Teams is becoming increasingly popular, especially in light of COVID-19. In April, The Verge reported that the use of Teams has increased from 44 million daily active users in March to more than 75 million in April – up 70 percent in just 30 days. In June, Computer Weekly published an article that referenced a study that showed that microsoft teams usage grew by nearly 900 percent in just four months, a growth rate faster than that of its closest competitor, Zoom.
