As our employees continue to work remotely, Microsoft Teams has been essential to our continued collaboration and connectivity. The recent updates to the Teams platform includes several major upgrades which have allowed us to feel more connected, despite working from home.
New Meeting Experience
Microsoft Team’s new meeting experience features gives users greater control over how they interact with the Teams platform while in meetings and calls on the Teams Desktop App. By turning on this new feature, you enable the following features:
The New Meeting Experience feature is currently available on the Teams desktop app and can be turned on in the Settings. (The Teams platform will need to be restarted after update is enabled.
Live Captions with Speaker Attribution
Microsoft Teams already offers live captions during virtual meetings; however, a future update to this feature will provide speaker attribution for captioning. This means that users will know exactly who is speaking and what they are saying during meetings. With the speaker attribution feature, Teams provide even greater accessibility to the platform for those who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. We already love the greater inclusivity that this feature promotes for all Teams users and are excited for the new update!
We recently used the new Together Mode feature for our Friday morning All-Employee meeting and our employees really enjoyed using it! Mode places meeting attendees in a single, virtual frame to give users the sense that they are in the same shared space. Although our employees have been physically distant these past few months, this feature encourages more effective discussions and brainstorming sessions and helps our employees feel more connected, even when we are apart.
Our employees at eBiz Solutions have loved these recent updates to the Microsoft Teams platform. These updates have increased our efficiency while using Teams and have promoted improved collaboration between team members and across our business.
