According to the Microsoft 365 roadmap, a future update will completely revolutionize the way we access our files within Teams.

After this software changes go online, users will be able access previously opened files even if they don’t have an internet connection at that moment.

This is amazing news for us all, considering how more and more companies encourage their employees to work from home, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

More and more features are coming to Microsoft Teams

This new update comes shortly after the company developed a lot of new projects that involve its video conferencing platform.

As you might know, Microsoft is currently working on a new integration for Teams, that will save all the meeting recordings directly to OneDrive and SharePoint.

Recently, new next-level encryption was added to Teams, and Customer Key support also became available, as the company seeks to bolster security further.

Not to mention that Teams also received a new UI sharing feature this month, that made it easier for users to find and share files during meetings.

It seems like Microsoft spares no expense or time when it comes to enhancing their flagship applications so we can probably expect even more tweaks in the near future.
