Microsoft Teams features: What’s new?


Microsoft Teams is one of the most popular collaboration tools for businesses, allowing teams to communicate and collaborate seamlessly. Over the past few years, Microsoft has been continuously adding new features to Teams to make it even more useful for businesses.

In this blog post, we will introduce you to some of the latest features added to Microsoft Teams.

What are these new Microsoft Teams features?

Live Transcription

This feature allows users to transcribe and caption live meetings in real-time.

Live Transcription is a great accessibility feature that helps users with hearing impairments. It’s also useful for non-native English speakers or those who prefer to read along with the meeting.

Dynamic View

This feature automatically adjusts the layout of your meeting based on who is speaking, making it easier to follow the conversation. Dynamic View also allows users to customise their view to prioritise specific participants or content.

Together Mode

Together Mode is a unique feature that uses AI to create a virtual environment for participants to feel like they’re in the same room. This can help to improve engagement and make meetings feel more natural.

Tasks Integration

Microsoft Teams now integrates with Microsoft To-Do, allowing users to create and manage tasks directly from Teams. This feature streamlines task management and improves productivity.

PowerPoint Live

This feature allows users to present PowerPoint presentations directly within Teams. Presenters can see notes, upcoming slides, and interact with the audience through live reactions and polls.

Meeting Recap

After the meeting is over, Microsoft Teams will automatically generate a recap with the meeting recording, transcript, chat, and any shared files. This makes it easy to review and follow up on action items.

Additional Information

Overall, Microsoft Teams continues to improve and add new features to make collaboration and communication more seamless and effective. With these new features, Teams is becoming a one-stop-shop for team collaboration and productivity.

Watch this space as we’ll blog about these features in the coming weeks!
