We know you haven’t heard anything about Microsoft’s ultra-popular conferencing app in a while, so we’re here to share some of the latest news involving this software.

Before we do, though, remember that the web version of Teams recently got background effects and Live Captions, and there were also talks of some Improved AI-powered features.

Also, since we’re talking about this app, keep in mind that we can help if your Bluetooth headset is not working, or if files aren’t being downloaded.

Now let’s get back to the matter at hand and tell you that your favorite communications application will soon receive the Video Clip feature as well.

Get ready for the new Video Clip feature for Teams

During the 2022 Inspire event, the Redmond-based tech company actually announced a new Video Clip feature for Teams, besides other announcements such as Excel Live and Viva Engage.

That being said, Microsoft didn’t really bother to go the extra mile and actually let us know when users would be able to make the most of it.

All that is about to change, however, thanks to the latest post on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap page. Now we know which month Microsoft is targeting to bring the short video capability to the Teams app.

Judging by the details provided on the above-mentioned Roadmap page entry, the tech giant will therefore introduce the ability to create and view short video messages to Teams next month.

Microsoft has also clarified that all Teams users across all platforms, among which Desktop, Web, Android, Mac, and iOS, can benefit from the Video Clip feature.

So there’s no reason to feel left out, as absolutely everyone will get to take advantage of this new innovation brought to Teams.

Just in case you didn’t know, the Teams Video Clip feature is designed to let you create short video messages in order to add more meaning to your conversations.

That being said, it is currently not clear how short the videos will be, but they should not be more than a minute or two.

And, once the video is recorded, you can also review it before sending it to the other person, to make sure that everything is as it should be. You wouldn’t want to send your boss the wrong content, right?

While we are on the topic of Teams, know that besides Video Clip, Microsoft will also introduce the ability to assign seats to participants next month.

This feature, however, will be limited to PCs and Mac computers, so don’t get your hopes up just yet if you are using a different platform.

Also, don’t forget that Microsoft Viva Goals is now generally available to all users, so go check that out if you haven’t already.
