The Office 365 tool, which lets you create digital workspaces for your employees, recently received multiple updates that empower collaboration in the workplace and the education sector.
New Microsoft Teams meetings features
Microsoft Teams received new features that make workforce collaborationa breeze. Microsoft said that the improvements make meetings more lively and inclusive.
They help you feel more connected with your team and reduce meeting fatigue. Second, they make meetings more inclusive and engaging. And third, they help streamline your work and save time.
Here are some of the features either coming or currently rolling out to Microsoft Teams users:
Microsoft says it researched and learnt that virtual meetings make people feel less connected. So, it’s rolling out Together mode in Teams, which uses AI to place virtual meeting participants in a shared background.
This AI-powered feature lets users customize how they view shared content and fellow Teams meeting attendees on the screen. For example, you can configure the feature to see select participants side-by-side.
In addition, Microsoft will be rolling out large gallery view in August. This update enables up to 49 people to appear on the video screen at the same time.
So, finally, Microsoft Teams is going to match Zoom’s maximum number of participants visible on each screen.
Use this feature to customize the appearance of participants on the video screen. You may tweak the lighting or adjust the camera focus to achieve video effects typical of photography and social media applications.

A few months after Microsoft Teams got the raise hand feature, it now supports live reactions. This capability lets the audience give feedback to the speaker in real time using emojis.
Other announced Microsoft Teams features include chat bubbles, suggested replies, and more.
