  1. A couple of days ago, Microsoft released a list of all the new features it added in November. It will also do the same for December and beyond, but before Microsoft releases the official list, we have just come to know about a new Teams feature coming to iOS devices this month. Microsoft is developing a picture-in-picture (PiP) mode capability for Teams for iOS devices. The aim is to let users multitask while a Teams meeting is going on. As described by Microsoft, you can see your meetings in an adjustable window to make room for other apps on your iPad or iPhone devices. The feature is already available for Teams users on Android. Similar functionality is also available on Zoom, but it has a fancy name — "Floating thumbnail window." A picture-in-picture mode is essentially a mini-window view, which you can collapse and expand as per the requirement. Although Microsoft has not explained the functionality in great detail, users should be able to mute/unmute themselves and turn on/off video while in the PiP mode. We will have to wait a few more days to find out how exactly the feature functions. According to Microsoft 365 Roadmap page, Microsoft is planning to add PiP support to iOS devices this month. However, as is the case with every feature listed on the roadmap page, it has no details on its exact release date. While Teams users on iOS devices will not mind waiting, there is always a possibility that Microsoft will delay it to January or beyond. If you are using Teams on iPad or iPhone, let us know if PiP mode will be useful for you. Microsoft Teams to soon add Zoom's 'Floating thumbnail window' to iOS devices
  2. Microsoft regularly introduces new features to its software each month. Earlier today, it recapped all the capabilities it added to Excel in November 2022, and now it has done the same for Microsoft Teams. In the meetings category, one-click polls can be instantly spun up with attendees allowed to give binary responses. Microsoft claims that Teams is the first software to offer this as other software requires polls to be prepared in advance. Moreover, dial-in, dial-out, and call-me attendees can now easily join breakout rooms and then rejoin the main room when they are done with their discussion. Depending upon hardware specifications, Teams can also switch automatically to Large Gallery view, which enables 49 video streams simultaneously. Microsoft has also announced that the modern meeting experience comprising of pre-join, dynamic view, and an updated control bar is rolling out to Chrome and Edge. Coming over to calling capabilities, Teams admins can configure a policy so that when an incoming PSTN call is accepted, any relevant information can be displayed in a pop-out browser window. Additionally, transcription for 1:1 and group calls on Teams for Android are finally available. Changing gears to the devices front, Teams will utilize a feature called Proximity Join to optimize and suppress video streams to only show attendees who have joined remotely. Moreover, hot desking now works in Teams portrait mode and users can also extend their reserved time. As a reminder, Microsoft has also renamed the Common Area Phone (CAP) license to the Teams Shared Device license with some improvements. In related news, the Poly G7500 is now Teams-certified. There are a bunch of new features in the chat and collaboration domain too, namely: Teams users can now accept or block a group chat invitation from an unmanaged user Schedule send Start a Teams Chat with Distribution Groups, Mail-enabled Security Groups, and Office 365 Groups Click on search message results to view the entire chat conversation history Unread toggle Upload documents form OneDrive for Business in E-signature Approvals On the management side, Surface Hub devices can be managed by Teams admins for remote restart, downloading logs, and more. Moreover, the unread toggle in activity feed can be leveraged to easily see which notifications you haven't seen yet. Finally, U.S. Government Community Cloud (GCC) customers will soon be able to utilize Teams Connectors while GCC-High users can already cast Teams from a desktop (Windows/Mac) to a Teams Room display. Here are all the new features Microsoft added to Teams in November 2022
  3. Although the online communication tools market has had its fair share of competition even prior to the COVID outbreak, the need for such utilities has seen a meteoric rise with the relatively recent shift to hybrid work trends. Although Microsoft Teams is the software of choice for many firms that are already leveraging Microsoft's suite of products, there are other competitors such as Slack and Zoom too. Now, it seems like European Union (EU) regulators are looking to investigate Microsoft over some antitrust issues related to Teams. Reuters has reported that the European Commission (EC) is looking to launch an investigation against Microsoft for purported anti-competitive practices related to its Teams software. The basis for this scrutiny is a complaint filed by Slack in 2020 in which it stated that bundling Teams with the Microsoft 365 suite of products forces it to be installed on many machines while "hiding the true cost to enterprise customers". It urged the regulator to force Microsoft to remove Teams from its Microsoft 365 suite and offer it separately at "fair" commercial prices. At that time, Slack's Vice President of Communications and Policy Jonathan Prince was quoted as saying: This is much bigger than Slack versus Microsoft – this is a proxy for two very different philosophies for the future of digital ecosystems, gateways versus gatekeepers. [...] Slack offers an open, flexible approach that compounds the threat to Microsoft because it is a gateway to innovative, best-in-class technology that competes with the rest of Microsoft’s stack and gives customers the freedom to build solutions that meet their needs. We want to be the 2% of your software budget that makes the other 98% more valuable; they want 100% of your budget every time. According to the report, the EC sent out a new set of questionnaires last month, which is a sign that it's considering ramping up its investigation against Microsoft. Two sources familiar with the matter noted that: The Commission is looking at (Microsoft's) interoperability and bundling but more detailed this time. They are looking for information that allows them to define remedies. They are preparing the ground for an investigation. This is not the first time Slack and Microsoft have clashed. At one point, Microsoft even considered acquiring Slack for $8 billion but ended up launching Teams itself. Both companies have thrown shade at each other from time to time. Slack's CEO once said that he doesn't see Teams as a threat, while Microsoft noted that "little companies (like Slack) come and go", and that the Redmond tech giant has it all covered. Either way, this would not be a good time for Microsoft to be engaged in yet another antitrust investigation. It's already being probed by European regulators over its $69 billion proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

  4. In a bid to improve the virtual meeting experience and boost engagement, Microsoft is adding a number of casual games to its chatting and video-calling service – Microsoft Teams. The tech giant has added a new app called Games for Work to its video-conferencing tool which will allow users to switch to some casual gaming titles and play them together. The app includes games like IceBreakers, Wordament, Minesweeper, and Solitaire and will support as many as 250 people together. Microsoft asserts that while some people playing games during working hours are nothing more than a source of distraction, in reality, the benefits such activities are plentiful. It cites a report by Brigham Young University to support its claims. The study findings reveal teams that play short video games together remain 20 percent more productive after playing video games for just 45 minutes than those who participate in more traditional team-building activities. The company further notes that with the sudden shift to remote and hybrid working environments, the networks of relationships among people who live and work together are weakening. Games can offer an easy way to connect and rebuild the weakening bonds within teams. More importantly, the games supported on the platform are safe for work (“E” rated) and ads-free. Each game within the app emphasizes a different component of team building. Microsoft has encouraged customers to try these games to boost productivity and have fun simultaneously. In Teams-related news, the company has announced a new license type called "Teams Shared Device", which you can read more about here. Microsoft is adding games to Teams to make virtual meetings a lot more exciting
  5. Getting Windows to stop Microsoft Teams from launching itself automatically during the startup can be a task of sorts if you have no idea where to start from. Don’t worry, we have got you covered here! Kill Microsoft Teams from launching itself during startup While Microsoft Teams is a useful tool for connecting with people remotely, there’s one major annoyance associated with the video conferencing tool. It’s configured to launch automatically on PC start-up. As such, it might slow down your PC. Stopping the app may help your PC boot up faster at launch. If you agree, let’s see how to disable it on startup. Click the Windows icon on the Taskbar. When a window opens, select the Settings icon visible as the cog-wheel icon. Go to the Apps heading. It’s located under the side panel on the left. Switch to the right pane and scroll down to the Startup tab. Click the side arrow to expand the menu. Then, under the Startup Apps section, locate the entry for Microsoft Teams. When found, simply toggle the switch to the off position. The action when confirmed will disable Microsoft Teams from launching automatically during the startup. It will also free up your computer’s memory for other tasks. Just recently, Teams received Mesh Avatars, Premium SKU, Places app and improved channel experience. Don't forget to check it out! How to disable Microsoft Teams from launching during startup
  6. Microsoft has issued a workaround for the Teams meeting option missing on Outlook desktop. The bug seems to be a fairly common one as it easily comes up in Google search suggestions. In a support document, the Redmond company has described the problem: When you attempt to create a Teams meeting in Outlook Desktop you find that the option is missing on the ribbon. This issue can occur if the Teams Meeting add-in becomes disabled. Here is how the workaround works which shows you how to enable the Teams Meeting add-in in case it has become disabled: To work around the issue, you can turn on the Teams Meeting add-in from Outlook. To turn on the Teams Meeting add-in: In Outlook select File > Options > Add-ins > Manage, select “Disabled items”, and then Go. If you see Teams listed under Disabled Items select it, and then select Enable. Restart Outlook and confirm if the add-in is working. Microsoft has also shared a registry tweak to prevent the add-in from getting disabled by Outlook again: If you want to prevent the Teams Meeting add-in from being disabled by Outlook, add this registry key: Open Registry editor Go to Registry Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Resiliency\DoNotDisableAddinList Create a new DWORD (32-bit) value Name: TeamsAddin.FastConnect Value: 1 You may find more information on the support document on Microsoft's website here. Microsoft shares workaround for Teams Meeting option missing in Outlook
  7. Microsoft recently announced the set of new features that Teams gained in October. Here's the rundown of that in case you haven't been keeping a tab. Following that, Microsoft has also shared some of the performance improvements that Teams has received. The company says this is a part of its continuous effort to make positive strides, and it builds on top of the gains it announced back in June. However, the percentage improvements noted by Microsoft here appear to be somewhat misleading. The company claims a 12% improvement when switching between chat threads over the June '22 update. And when switching between channel threads, that gain is noted at 11%. However, the baseline for the data has actually been taken as the June 2020 update from two years ago, which means Microsoft has measured the percentage point differentials between the June 2022 and November 2022 updates, and not the actual gain percentage it seems. The actual gain percentage with the latest framework upgrade should actually be 10% for switching chat threads and 8.6% for channel threads over June 2022, and not 12% and 11%, respectively. The blog post detailing the changes has been penned by Microsoft's Jeff Chen, who is the Principal TPM manager for Teams. It says: Users can enjoy a greater fluidity experience from day-to-day application interactions The most common action for a user in Teams is to switch between different chats, channels, and activity feeds. Over the past two years, switching between chat threads is now 32% faster, switching between channels is 39% faster. This leads to a more fluid experience that will keep you in the flow. Aside from faster switching between threads, Teams has also received improvements to the joining time with a 21% betterment. Latency and responsiveness see a 16% boost: Improved meeting experiences from faster joining and interaction Another common scenario of our day-to-day life with Teams is joining a meeting. We are excited to share that the framework upgrade improved the join time by 21%, and responsiveness during meetings has improved. For example, the latency of raising your hand has improved by 16%. You may find more details on the official blog post. Microsoft may just be really bad at Maths as it touts another big performance boost in Teams
  8. Teams is Microsoft's premier solution for online communication and collaboration. The company regularly adds new features to it and then does a roundup at the end of each month, detailing recent enhancements. Now, Microsoft has published a detailed list of new capabilities added to Teams in October 2022. Starting with enhancements to meetings, organizers can now assign seats to participants in Together Mode. Moreover, meeting content can now be popped out in a separate window, this functionality was available for only chats and meeting experiences previously. The companion mode for Teams mobile is also being rolled out to Android, it allows a streamlined management experience through access to meeting controls directly on Teams mobile. And some Teams customers may be disappointed to know that Microsoft is making live translated captions exclusive to customers with a Teams Premium license. Coming over to improvements to calling, you can take advantage of a more detailed call history with recordings and transcripts. Contact groups for calls can now be created and edited too. In related news, there are some new Teams-certified devices too, including Creston Flex, Sony YY2969 Earbuds, and Neat Frame. There are tons of enhancements in the chat and collaboration domain too. When you create a team using a Teams template, the associated SharePoint template will get automatically applied as well. Other features include limited functionality for Adobe Acrobat as the default PDF reader (public preview), suggested replies in group chats, video clips (generally available on desktop, private preview on mobile at the end of this year), the ability to delete or rename files present in a Teams channel or the OneDrive folder in teams, and scheduling form pop-out windows for Teams Calendar. Other features not geared towards mainstream consumers of Teams are listed below: Power Platform and custom development ISV App Subscriptions instead of 3P app subscriptions in Teams Admin Center Simplified app update experience Teams Platform Apps in One-on-One VOIP Calls Teams Platform Apps in Group VOIP Calls Zero install link unfurling Management Upgraded usage analytics for Teams administrators and users Enhancement to app usage report - support for Line of Business apps Teams for Education Dedicated blog here Frontline Workers Approvals as a PDFs can be saved, printed and transferred Approvals in integrated SharePoint Lists Assign Approvals to a Tag in Teams Rich notes in Tasks field Government Enhancement to app usage report - support for Line of Business apps Music on hold for Voice over IP calls, consultative transfer, and call transfer for GCCH and DOD Live Share SDK support for meeting extensions Text prediction for Teams mobile in GCC-High and DoD Connectors in GCC Firefox Meeting Support for Outgoing Screen Sharing Updated companion mode for Android users for GCC, GCC-High and DoD If you're interested in any of the aforementioned features, be sure to check out more details in Microsoft's blog post here. Here are all the new features Microsoft added to Teams in October 2022
  9. Microsoft added several useful features in Teams in the last couple of months, and it is hard at work to bring more in the future too. The Redmond giant is set out to bring some accessibility features for people with hearing loss to help them in Teams meetings. Microsoft intends to add Sign Language View and always-on captions in Teams meetings in the next month. As per the description given on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap page, Microsoft Teams will "prioritize up to two other participants' videos for sign language in meetings." These videos will be visible even when the content is shared. Microsoft has not explained how the functionality will work on Teams. Its competitor Zoom already has support for Sign Language Interpretation in meetings and webinars. In Zoom, meeting and webinar hosts can designate multiple participants as sign language channel interpreters so that participants can have options to choose from multiple sign language interpretations. Zoom introduced the capability last month. The timing was perfect, as September is Deaf Awareness Month. Microsoft clearly lost an opportunity to launch these key accessibility features at a time when most people would have talked about it, but better late than never. Microsoft has promised general availability of Sign Language View in Teams for Windows and Mac devices in November, but it can get delayed, like the arrival of Dark Mode for Word for the web.

  10. At its developer-oriented Ignite 2022 conference, Microsoft has announced a range of new features that will not only interest developers, but also consumers and enterprise customers. For starters, Mesh avatars are now available in private preview for Teams. This is something Microsoft announced almost a year ago. Basically, Mesh enables users to utilize personalized 3D avatars that can join Teams meetings and interact with each other in an immersive space. It won't require users to turn on their cameras but interactive methods such as eye contact and live reactions will be offered for those who prefer a non-robotic interaction. Avatars can created through the Avatars app in the Teams App Store. A Teams Premium SKU is also hitting preview in December 2022. New capabilities in tow include meeting guides, branding for meeting experiences, intelligent search, recap, and playback, AI-generated tasks, personalized insights, live translations for captions, advanced meeting protection, advanced webinars, and advanced virtual appointments. This will be available as an add-on preview in December. Pricing details are currently unavailable but general availability is scheduled for February 2023. The AI features have a broader "first half of 2023" release window though. Microsoft has outlined enhancements to existing Teams features too. It has stated that Cameo for Teams is generally available, Excel Live in a Teams meeting window is coming later this month, and that organizers will have more control over the Together mode view for all participants along with the ability to assign seats. Teams Phone Mobile is now generally available thanks to Microsoft partnering with several global telecom operators. It's currently available in a few countries and select telcos but Microsoft is working on expanding the capability. You can find out more details here. Some other new and upcoming Teams features also include the following: Video clips - Generally available now Expanded reactions - General availability in November Suggested replies in group chats - Generally available in October Schedule send - Generally available now Delete chat - Generally available in November Mention @everyone for group chats - Coming at the end of this year Zero-state people recommendations to suggest people to initiate chat conversations based on previous collaborations - Coming at the end of this year Furthermore, Microsoft is improving the channel experience in Teams by moving the compose box to the top of the page, pop out conversations, pin posts, and enjoy a more streamlined info pane. Channels will also be made customizable with branded headers, and multiple post types for different occasions and milestones. On the partners side, Microsoft Teams meetings will be available natively across certified Cisco meeting devices on a rolling basis. Microsoft is also continuing to work with independent software vendors (ISVs) such as 3M, SAP, iHeartRadio, Workplace by Meta, ServiceNow, Zoho, and more for collaborative Teams apps. But talking about first-party commitment to Teams apps, Microsoft has announced the Places app for Teams. The hybrid workforce management and collaboration app is coming soon in preview with the following functionalities: A dashboard view of which days people on the team or collaboration network will be in the office. A presence that will indicate people’s physical location (in office, remote or mobile). The ability to see the workspaces other users have booked, so someone can book one nearby. Insights and guidance on commuting and passing time, plus the ability to automatically schedule travel time. Wayfinding and navigation help within the office location. A modernized conference room booking and technology to allow everyone to be a first-class participant. Insights and guidance on sentiment related to hybrid policies, so managers can implement best practices. Insights and guidance on space usage, so leaders can future-proof spaces and add flexibility into their real estate portfolio. Finally, for developers, the Teams Live Share SDK to build custom collaborative experiences is now in preview and the Teams Toolkit is now officially a part of Visual Studio, which should streamline the integration process for developers in this domain. Microsoft Teams gets Mesh avatars, Premium SKU, Places app, and improved channel experience
  11. Microsoft has revealed two new products designed to improve the hybrid meeting experience: Microsoft Presenter+ and Microsoft Audio Dock. These two devices are designed to improve your Teams meetings; the Presenter+ is the first Teams-certified presentation control and the Audio Dock provides great audio and noise-reducing microphones to boost the experience of your meetings. Discussing the Presenter+, Microsoft said that you can use it to move between slides in your presentation, mute and unmute the volume, direct the audience's attention with the screen pointer, and quickly join meetings. In addition, you can long press the Teams button on the controller to raise or lower your hand, so you can more easily engage with the meeting. The device is connected using Bluetooth, so you don’t have to stay too close to the computer. With the Audio Dock, you’ll get HDMI, USB-C x2, and USB-A connection ports and a pass-through PC charger. The Audio Dock is quite small, so it’s suited for most desks, no matter their size. Despite its small size, Microsoft promises premium sound with the Omnisonic speakers. Other meeting participants will hear you well with the dual forward-facing, noise-reducing microphones. The Audio Dock has integrated mute control if you need to go silent for a bit. At the time of writing, the pricing for these products is unavailable. Be sure to check the Microsoft website for your locality to see if they are available in your area and how much they cost.

  12. Earlier today, Microsoft released a new build for Windows 11 Insiders flighting the Dev Channel. The new build 25217 opens the option for third-party widgets, fixes several issues in the Tablet-mode taskbar, and more. Read all about the changes in this article. Alongside those, the company has also released an update to the Microsoft Store, and a "sneak peek" into the new video calling options that the company is introducing inside Teams Chat. Microsoft calls it the sneak peek since this only rolling out to some users at the moment, with wider availability planned for later in the coming months. The company explains how the new features in Teams Chat works: When you open Chat from the taskbar, the focus will be on you with a preview of your own video, and the various ways you can connect with your people. It is now easier than ever to immediately start a video call with those who are using Microsoft Teams for personal use. For those who are not on Teams, not a problem- you can easily share a call link with anyone via SMS or email and get the conversation going directly within Chat. You can find the official announcement post here. Microsoft gives a "sneak peek" of new Teams Chat on Windows 11
  13. Microsoft Teams is one of the most used organizational software when it comes to online communication at the workplace. As such, Microsoft regularly adds capabilities to it in order to retain existing customers while enticing new ones. Typically, the company also publishes a roundup of all the recent features that it introduced at the end of the month, but for some reason, it skipped this in August. Now, it has penned a combined roundup for both August and September 2022. Starting off with performance, we know that Teams now runs natively on Apple Silicon. This should result in better performance and an optimized experience in multi-monitor setups too. When it comes to meetings, the Cameo experience is now supported via PowerPoint Live. It allows presenters more control over how they can have both themselves and their slides visible at the same time, while also offering layout recommendations. Meeting participants can also leverage from collaborative annotations powered by Microsoft Whiteboard, along with language interpretation. Organizers in meeting can set a Together mode view for everyone as well. Other new features include pre-assigning channel members to breakout rooms, automatic transcriptions (and transcripts for Android and iOS), ranking polls, less distracting notifications, and improved informational messages. This is in addition to the ability to leave a meeting on all your devices, background blur effect for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), Human Interface Devices (HID) support for VMware, and the option to convert a Word of PDF document to a Microsoft Forms form with one click. In the domain of calling, admins can now configure music on hold for calls placed on hold for a call transfer. There is also initial support for media when it comes to organizations who want to integrate compliance recording solutions. Inbound VoIP calls can now be blocked from all Teams users outside an organization too. On the devices side, we have updates to both the single display and dual-display modes in the front row experience for Teams Rooms on Windows. On the same SKU, meetings can now be joined with a meeting ID and videos for 18 participants can be shown simultaneously on dual-display setups. Furthermore, participants can utilize mute status indicators, control in-room noise suppression, leverage the simplified share tray, and pin and hide room video. Admins can also disable split gallery via XML. Three more devices have become Teams-certified, namely the Poly CCX 505 Business Media Phone, Logitech Brio 500, and Brio 505. Over in the chat and collaboration section, we have the ability to configure our preferred download location for files on Teams desktop, along with intelligent chat message translation in Android and iOS. Meanwhile, on the Power Platform and custom development side, we have support for apps in Teams Phone VoIP calls and instant meetings. Teams for Education customers have a lot of new stuff to leverage too, including: Parent Connection LTI apps integration with Schoology LMS Brightspace (D2L) LMS integration with Microsoft 365 Home page for Teams for Education class teams Activate a class from inside the Teams Classes LTI app within your Learning Management System (LMS) View video recordings and attendance reports inside LMS Timed quiz IT admins can personalize their Teams admin center dashboards through various widgets, customize instructions for people requesting access to resources, and understand policy operations to a greater extent through the updated activity log. For frontline workers, Microsoft has introduced the ability to deploy Teams at scale and has provided additional filters in the Approvals apps too. Meanwhile, U.S. Government Community Cloud High (GCC-High) and the United States Department of Defense (DoD) can leverage isolated audio feeds and an attendance dashboard. Of course, this is just a high level recap of all the things that Microsoft introduced to Teams in the past two months. If you would like to see more details, head over to the associated blog post. Here are all the new features Microsoft added to Teams in August and September 2022
  14. Microsoft Teams is one of the most used online collaboration tools in workplaces, especially those practising a hybrid or online-only model. As such, Microsoft regularly makes improvements to the software, while also adding new features. Now, the firm has detailed a new initiative powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to make Teams calls sound better, especially in poor network conditions. For those unaware, your audio content in a Teams call is sent through what are essentially "packets" of data. And these packets can get lost due to poor internet connectivity, resulting in the audio being distorted. While Microsoft can't really fix your internet connectivity problems, what it does in Teams instead is leverage a technique called Packet Loss Concealment (PLC) to artificially make your voice sound better in challenging network environments. At a very high level, PLC uses an AI model to identify the missing packets in your audio transmission and then fill any voids through predictions. Microsoft has outlined an example of this and while the difference is quite subtle, it's certainly there. Check out the company's sample audio without PLC applied: Your browser does not support the audio element. And this is what the same audio sounds like after PLC is applied: Your browser does not support the audio element. Microsoft says that it used deep learning techniques to accomplish this improvement. It claims that while traditional models can fill gaps of 20-40 milliseconds, its PLC model for Teams is significantly better because it can fill audio voids of up to 80 milliseconds. Although Microsoft trained its PLC model on 600 hours of open-source data, what's fascinating is that it also collected "millions of anonymous network samples", or what it refers to as "traces" from real Teams calls to test its model. Following the release of the PLC model, participants with poor network conditions reported about a 15% improvement. Microsoft has emphasized that its Teams PLC model runs completely locally, and only when there is poor network quality. It has recently become available for Windows customers, testing is currently ongoing on Mac, and it's coming to mobile pretty soon too. Microsoft makes Teams calls on Windows sound better, testing on Mac ongoing
  15. If you read my review of Windows 11 nearly a year ago or my Closer Look column on Microsoft Teams integration in the OS, you probably know by now that I'm not a biggest fan of this feature. I've talked about how the shoehorned implementation is bare-bones, buggy, and has a lot of missing functionalities. But hey, that sounds quite similar to Windows 11's Taskbar as well, so why is my article not about that? The reason is that Taskbar is actually getting some attention from Microsoft. Of course, there are complaints that it's too little, too late, but at least Microsoft is adding and returning capabilities to it. On the other hand, we've barely seen any movement on the Teams front, and that is what I have an issue with considering that the app sits front and center in the Taskbar by default. There have been little to no updates to the Teams experience in Windows 11 in the past year. Almost all my complaints about the lack of context menus, functionalities, and bugs still stand. The only relatively major improvement I've seen in the past year in Teams is support for Snap Layouts. However, even that isn't a slam dunk because this is something that should have been present since launch. Then, there's also the problem of Teams' horrendous performance. Although Microsoft has talked before about how the migration from Electron and AngularJS to Edge WebView2 and React should result in lower memory consumption and "scale up for the client", all of this sounds like mumbo jumbo when I open a Teams chat window and see RAM usage jump to anywhere between 400-600MB. Even with Windows 11 version 22H2 arriving later this month, Teams is only getting a couple of relatively minor OS-level functionalities. These are the ability to mute the mic from the Taskbar and the option to share an open window when you hover it over an app in the Taskbar. Considering that Windows 11 has been out for almost a year, this does not sound that exciting for an app that sits at the center of the OS' Taskbar by default. But perhaps the most telling aspect of Microsoft's apparent lack of interest in Teams on Windows 11 is the fact that the company barely talks about it. It makes up for footnotes in Windows 11 Insider build changelogs. Heck, Microsoft even partnered up with Disney for a Windows 11 ad (video above) featuring She-Hulk and while we saw Snap Layouts, Office apps, and even virtual desktops, Teams was a no-show. Considering that Teams work users in Windows 11 can now interact with both personal and external accounts, I would have figured that marketing this capability would have been a natural fit to show an attorney's usage of the OS in this ad, but nope. Of course, just because Teams is not featured in an ad doesn't immediately mean that it's a low priority for Microsoft. But consider the fact that Microsoft has not shared any stats about Teams usage on Windows 11 at all. We know Teams has millions of monthly active users overall but how many actually use the built-in integration with Windows 11? No idea. The comparison that immediately came to my mind when thinking of this topic was Cortana. Microsoft consistently advertised its (arguably) failed digital assistant's capabilities, including publishing statistics about how users had asked it 18 billion questions since launch. On the other hand, we are yet to find out if Teams is gaining any traction at all. Of course, this is not really a matter of my productivity being impacted or my workflows being affected. I could easily hide the app from the Taskbar and never think about it again. But considering that Microsoft has been pushing Teams' personal usage for the past few months, seeing the app in its current stagnant state just feels wrong to me. I know tons of people who use and like Windows 11 but none of them have intentionally opened the Teams app more than once. Whether that is due to Microsoft's lack of development focus and marketing of the feature when it comes to Windows 11 or due to the possibility that people have better alternatives to communicate with personal connections online is something that is still unclear. If it's the former, the situation can be remedied but if it's the latter, it's remarkable short-sightedness of vision and strategy from Microsoft. I am an active Teams customer at my workplace and I really like the communication app despite its flaws. Microsoft wants Teams Personal to be the FaceTime of Windows 11, but it has shown no effort to actually complete this vision. A bundled operating system app deserves better, Teams deserves better. What do you think of Teams integration in Windows 11? Are you satisfied with the implementation? Let us know in the comments section below! Teams integration in Windows 11 continues to be Microsoft's abandoned child
  16. A few months ago, we learned that Microsoft is building a Teams client that is optimized for Apple Silicon chips. A beta version of the app was released in April, and Microsoft is now ready to roll out the native Teams Apple Silicon client generally. As you would expect, the core benefit of having a Teams client that natively runs on Apple Silicon instead of relying on emulation is the performance enhancements. Microsoft has stated that: We are rolling out a production grade universal binary version of Teams, which means it will run natively on the entire Mac lineup, including those with Apple silicon. For Mac users, this means a significant boost in performance, ensuring efficient use of device resources and an optimized Teams experience even when using multiple high-resolution monitors during calls or meetings. It is important to note that the updated Teams client isn't being made available for all customers at once. Instead, Microsoft will roll in out in a staggered manner to everyone over the next few months, likely to fix any lingering issues ahead of wider availability. That said, if you're in a rush to try it out before general availability (GA), you can download a Public Preview build from here. Microsoft Teams now runs natively on Apple Silicon, rolling out generally
  17. Towards the end of each month, Microsoft publishes a roundup of all the features it added to some of its software products in the previous four weeks. A couple of days ago, it recapped everything it added to Excel in July 2022, and now, it has done the same for Teams. As usual, all updates have been categorized into various feature-sets, summarized below. Meetings There are a bunch of new features for Microsoft Forms in Teams. Basically, the Forms app is being replaced by "Polls", so that it's more discoverable and indicative of what its core functionality is. Some UI changes have been implemented too, including moving the list of suggested polls from the bottom to the side pane, an entry point to the Polls portal, and a results view for the poll creator. Other smaller features for Polls include the ability to reuse older polls, new animations after submitting responses, a rating poll, and a better view for results with dynamic responses and color indicators. Phone and calling A nifty capability in this section is the ability to hide specific calls from your call history. Similarly, the call recording announcement will now play in your default language. There are several other improvements for Common Area Phone in terms of licensing, enrollment, and management. Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) by Spectralink have now been integrated with SIP Gateway as well. This is primarily useful for frontline workers. Devices Microsoft Teams Room users can now utilize the "Manage" button to check out a room through the Teams panel. Alternatively, the same UI element can also be leveraged to extend the reservation of the room. Microsoft has made it easier for Teams-certified peripherals that have camera toggles to "more efficiently" turn your video on and off using buttons. Meanwhile, the latest batch of Teams-certified devices now includes the Logitech Tap IP and Logi Dock. Chat and collaboration A useful feature that Microsoft has added in this area is integration with LinkedIn. There's a dedicated tab that will allow you to view the LinkedIn details of your colleagues, including past experiences, roles, and education. You will also be able to send them LinkedIn connection requests directly from Teams. The @TeamOwners handle can be used to tag all team owners in a channel, you don't need to tag them individually anymore. And if you use the Teams app on the iPad, you'll find it more responsive to the screen size and orientation. Management A new capability that Teams admins will really appreciate is the ability to remove individual policy assignments in bulk. This is useful because individual policies are prioritized but if you wish that all users follow a company-wide policy, you can remove individual policies in one go. Security, compliance, and privacy A minor change in this area is that the Teams Export API now supports Teams reactions. It already supports messages, attachments, emoji, GIFs, and @Mentions. Teams for Education Microsoft has partnered with Moodle and the Microsoft Teams Meetings LTI and Classes LTI apps are now available directly on the Moodle platform. Frontline workers If you're at IT admin managing a lot of frontline teams, you'll be pleased to know that you can use a single PowerShell command to deploy up to 500 teams, each with 25 members. Alternatively, members can be removed in bulk too. There's also a new feature called Device Test, described as follows: Device Test allows virtual appointment users to validate and configure hardware components before joining an appointment through Microsoft Teams. Users will be able to validate camera, microphone, and browser compatibility, as well as the internet connection at any moment before the scheduled appointment start time. Benefits of Device Test include: Complete a full test call with Azure Communication Service Easy access to the troubleshooting guide Ability to share test results with appointment organizers In the same vein, those in the UK can now send SMS confirmations and reminders for Teams meeting links organized through the Bookings app inside Teams. Government While this is a more specialized area that is probably not catered to our core audience, Teams Government customers can now leverage meeting options and Large Gallery and Together Mode views for Teams on VDI. Of course, we have only glossed over some of the details and if you're interested in diving deeper into all of the aforementioned updates, head over to Microsoft's blog post here. Here are all the new features Microsoft added to Teams in July 2022
  18. In a blog post, Microsoft has introduced a host of new features for Microsoft Teams for the web. These new capabilities are pretty basic and are already available on Teams desktop clients, nonetheless. However, Microsoft Teams for the web users will be able to use features like background effects for the first time. Teams for the web now allow users to blur their background or use a Microsoft-provided background during a meeting. This is something Microsoft promised last year, and the software giant has taken almost a year to deliver on its promise. Microsoft has highlighted another important functionality. Teams web client will now allow users to "view captions coming from a CART provider (real-time captioning) within the Microsoft Teams meeting window instead of a secondary window." Users can enable the CART caption from the meeting options. Live Captions support is another useful feature that Teams users on the web have been asking for for a long. And Microsoft has finally added it, allowing users to "see who is speaking along with what's being said." Live Captions support is currently available in several spoken languages, including German, Portuguese (Brazil), Japanese, Hindi, and more. Lastly, Microsoft has introduced Live Transcript support, allowing users to "follow and review conversations alongside the meeting video or audio in real-time." Participants who join late can read the transcript to know what's been discussed earlier in the meeting. It can also be helpful to participants with hearing disabilities or those with different language proficiency levels. If you're using the Microsoft Teams web client, do you like the aforementioned features? Let us know in the comments.

  19. Windows 11 launched back in October 2021 with Microsoft Teams directly integrated into the OS. And while I'm personally not a fan of the implementation - because I feel that it is shoehorned -, it appears that the service has made some major strides in terms of performance. In a recent blog post, Microsoft has highlighted all the performance gains that Teams on Windows 11 has made since August 2021. To that end, it has shared some statistics from real, anonymized data from the 95th percentile. You can check out the stats below, but note that they are based on the data of the "business" version of Microsoft Teams that is directly integrated in Windows 11: Latency while scrolling a chat list has improved by 11.4% Latency while scrolling the channel list has improved by 12.1% The compose message box loads 63% faster The time to switch to a channel and to open a chat window have both improved by 25% Switching threads in the activity feed has become better by 17.4% Switching between chat threads is 3.1% faster The mute and unmute audio response during a call has improved by 16% Jumping to the "Pre-meeting join" screen is better by 9% Opening a calling/meeting window now loads 4.5% faster There is a 13% performance difference for the better while switching from a meeting to a chat Switching from a meeting to the activity feed has improved by 18.7% Switching from a meeting to a channel has improved by 20% Microsoft has credited numerous engineering efforts including the migration from Angular to React, upgrading Electron, reducing re-rendering where possible, and refactoring and incrementally improving the code for these performance gains. Although the Teams app in Windows 11 should be faster now according to the data shared by Microsoft, we'll leave it up to our readers in the chat to validate whether these are noticeable in real-world use-cases. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below! Source: Microsoft via Windows Central Teams on Windows 11 is much faster now, according to Microsoft
  20. Microsoft today fulfilled its promise to bring Teams to the Microsoft Store. More than five years since its introduction, Microsoft Teams is finally available for download from where it should have been from the very beginning. If you use Windows 10, you can download Teams from the Microsoft Store without any surprises. The company says Teams on Windows 10 works with work, school, and personal accounts. Confusingly, things are slightly different when you download Teams on Windows 11. Because Windows 11 has the built-in Chat app (that thing that sits on the taskbar by default and consumes quite a lot of resources), Teams from the Store supports only work and school accounts. Microsoft announced Teams in 2016 and released the service in 2017 after a failed attempt to buy Slack. The company managed to make Teams quite a popular piece of corporate software by bundling it with existing Microsoft 365 subscriptions. Unfortunately for Microsoft, regular consumers are not that excited about Teams, even though Microsoft bundles the app with Windows 11. Most people keep using mainstream messengers and stay away from Teams. At last, Microsoft brings Teams to the Microsoft Store
  21. Microsoft Teams is giving us a lot of new features this April 2022, making the real-time collaboration and communication experience more comfortable for all users. Here are the latest details you might notice in the different sections of your organization’s ultimate messaging app: Leveraging the “Allow anonymous users to join meetings” settings, users can now anonymously join meetings in other clouds from the Teams desktop app. There is a new notification drawer at the top of the screen for the in-meeting system messages in iOS. The desktop or window being shared during a Teams meeting now includes audio. It is perfect when showing a video clip or a voiceover. Presenters can now choose to be on the left or right side of the content as we as resize their video feed. The content size will be automatically adjusted accordingly. Users of the Firefox browser will now receive support for full audio and desktop and window screen sharing in Teams meetings. Teams has a new ML-based music detector to give the user a choice to suppress background music or not. Only available for EDU customers as of now. Live captions now arrive in Teams on virtual desktop infrastructure for Azure Virtual Desktop and Citrix. Calling The Outlook contacts are now available to select for calling accessible through the contact drop-down selection. Teams is introducing a customizable disclaimer banner for emergency calling. It appears in the Calls app. Administrators can configure end-user call forwarding settings on behalf of users in their tenant via the Teams Admin Center or the Teams PowerShell Module. Devices The “Present” button is now named “Share” and returns to the Teams Rooms console home screen. Chat & Collaboration Editor Text Predictions in Teams mobile now has text prediction and suggests word or phrase inline. The new Power Automate tab with different Power Automate flow templates is now included in select team templates. Microsoft Fluent emoji style will be arriving in Teams emojis and reactions to give users more than 1800 emojis to use. Teams chat’s suggested replies on desktop now utilize assistive AI to provide three short responses relevant to the context of the previous message. When you upload files in the Power Automate portal, they will appear in the view details window of an Approval request within Teams. The chat app has a new chat filter function to find messages and conversations easily. Power Platform and custom development The message extension-based entry point lets users search and view applicable workflows and trigger pre-configured workflows from the message extension menu. The Teams app store is given a new “Automation” category, offering ample new Power Automate templates. Management Admins can control the messaging extensions’ pin order in the compose experience. A Teams device store in the Teams admin center is now available in the US and Canada. It will be offered to other international markets later this year. The “follow Office preview” policy is now available to Mac users in the Office Current Channel (Preview). Microsoft introduces “User request” flows for blocked apps. Teams for Education Notifications will be sent to students and educators when a new Class Notebook page is distributed. Teachers using Forms polls in a Teams meeting class will receive a summary report of votes. Frontline Workers Organizations are now allowed to collect and review responses from customers for virtual appointments, thanks to the new integration of Microsoft Forms into the Microsoft Bookings app in Teams. Frontliners can now experience the Walkie Talkie app in Teams featuring a push-to-talk button on Kyocera’s DuraForce Ultra 5G and DuraSport 5G. The new” Team owners and members” in the tag management settings lets all team members create, edit and adjust tags. Government The brand-new Attendance Dashboard allows measuring of meeting and webinar registration and attendance data. Teams webinars can handle up to 1,000 attendees and support registration page creation, email confirmation for registrants, host management for attendee video and audio, attendee reporting, polls, chat, and reactions. Incoming meeting nudges or invites with their video on will now be answered automatically for iOS devices. “Invite-only meeting” is a new Teams meeting option that directs users not originally invited to the lobby. The host can decide whether to admit them or not. Desktop or window shared during a Teams meeting can now include audio. Web and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure users can change the Teams meeting layout to Together mode and Large Gallery. The Voice Enabled Channels are now in GCC H and DoD. Admins are given the new ability to set a bandwidth control policy. The Dynamic Caller ID for Voice Enabled Channels is now available for GCC High and DoD. Customers in DoD are now allowed to start a team with up to 25,000 participants. There is new default for Teams notification style for DoD. New features and capabilities of Microsoft Teams this April 2022
  22. Microsoft Teams has finally received a version that interacts directly with the ARM-based chipset present in the latest Mac PCs. The beta version of Teams, optimized for Apple Silicon, is available directly from Microsoft. Apple released Mac PCs with its own proprietary chipset about a year and a half ago. The M1 SoC, designed by Apple engineers, has received a lot of praise. While the previous generation of Apple PCs had Intel processors, these new ARM-based chipsets operate with a completely different set of instructions. It took Microsoft quite some time to develop a version of Microsoft Teams optimized for the Apple Silicon. Incidentally, the latest version, still in beta, is not publicly available to Teams users yet. Mac users will have to download it via Microsoft’s website. When a macOS user will download and install the latest version of Teams from Microsoft the app will be transformed into a “Universal” app. This basically means that Microsoft Teams for Apple PCs has been tweaked to work with both Intel processors and Apple Silicon. Until recently, Microsoft Teams for macOS would run as an “Intel application on Apple Silicon Macs”. This meant the app had to go through Apple’s Rosetta 2 translation technology. Simply put, all apps designed to work with Intel's x86 architecture, needed an emulator to function on the new ARM-based processors. Currently, there are three categories of apps that are available for Apple computers running on the ARM-based chipset: iPhone and iPad apps on the Mac: These are available through the Mac App Store Apps that run through Rosetta 2 translation: This technology allows users to run apps made for Intel Macs on Apple Silicon. Universal apps: These apps are designed to work on Apple Silicon as well as Intel processors. Such apps are downloadable from the Mac App Store or from the web. It is important to note that neither Apple nor Microsoft have confirmed the existence of a “Universal” Teams app for macOS. Moreover, being a beta version, Mac PC users could experience bugs or performance issues. However, now that a Universal App of Microsoft Teams exists, it won’t be long before the same is officially available in the stable channel. Microsoft Teams optimized for Apple Silicon as 'Universal app' now available in beta version
  23. Microsoft recently updated the Microsoft 365 Roadmap with a new entry signaling the upcoming release of Teams in the Microsoft Store. Currently, the only way to get the messaging app is to download it from the official website. Teams in the Microsoft Store will provide Windows 10 and 11 users with a simpler and more convenient way to install the program. Here is what the roadmap says about Microsoft Teams coming soon to the Microsoft Store: Microsoft Teams app for work, school and life will soon be available to download from Microsoft store. This app will support work, school and consumer accounts on Windows 10 and Work or school accounts on Windows 11. Judging from the description, Microsoft does not plan to make Teams less confusing than it currently is. As of now, Microsoft provides two versions of Teams: one "regular" version you can download from the official website and one built-in Windows 11. Microsoft positions the latter as an alternative to mainstream messaging platforms and voice/video calling solutions for regular customers. Windows 10 has no built-in Teams capabilities, which means the upcoming Microsoft Store version will allow regular customers to use the app for their daily home needs. Windows 11 users, on the other hand, will have to stick to the built-in Chat app you can find on the taskbar. The Chat app on the taskbar in Windows 11 Moving the app to the Microsoft Store is not the only thing the company prepares for Teams. Microsoft is working on calendar statuses and the ability to enable Together mode for all participants. These capabilities are among the most requested features by Microsoft Teams users. Microsoft Teams is coming soon to the Microsoft Store
  24. Microsoft is working on the "Calendar Show As status" feature within Microsoft Teams and the ability to set Together Mode as the default view for all participants in a meeting, according to Microsoft 365 roadmap page. Both the features are set to roll out to the general public in the next couple of months. While scheduling an appointment, it's important to mark yourself busy during the hours so that someone else in your organization cannot schedule you. The feature is already available in Microsoft Outlook Calendar but is not currently available in Teams Calendar. Users on the Microsoft forum website have been requesting Microsoft to add this capability in Teams since the pandemic hit us. By promising to add the "Calendar Show As status" feature in Teams, Microsoft will give Teams users the option to mark themselves as free, busy, or Out of Office(OOF), exactly like how Outlook users can do. Moreover, Microsoft promises to add private meeting functionality to Teams Calendar. The feature will be helpful when users want to prevent other users from viewing appointments details when their calendar is shared. Teams users have also been requesting Microsoft to improve the Together Mode for a long time. Microsoft has finally started working on the ability to set Together Mode as the default view for all participants in a meeting. This feature will be helpful for a lot of organizations as it eliminates the painful process of telling every person to switch to Together Mode. Microsoft has mentioned on the roadmap page that the "Calendar Show As status" feature will be available for every Teams user on PC and Mac in June, while the ability to set Together Mode as the default view for all will be available from next month.

  25. How to start a video meeting in the free version of Microsoft Teams You can now host videoconferences in the free version Microsoft teams meeting Photo: Microsoft If you buy something from a Verge link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement. If you’re looking for yet another app to use to meet with your friends or co-workers online, Microsoft has just made it possible to hold meetings on its free version of Teams. Teams is Microsoft’s alternative to Slack — you can use it for instant messaging, hosting meetings, and collaborating on files. It’s designed for work, but anyone can sign up for a free account. (However, during signup, if you say you want to use Teams for communicating with friends and family, it will direct you to Skype — so just make sure you tell it that you’re using it for work.) Previously, free accounts could join meetings, but couldn’t initiate them; now, anybody can start a Teams meeting. And currently, Teams doesn’t put a cap on the length of the meeting or the number of participants (although, according to Microsoft, this is due to the COVID-19 crisis, so that may change in the future). To start a Teams video meeting, first you’ll have to either sign in with your Microsoft account or create one and then sign in. (You can create an account with any email address; it doesn’t have to be an Outlook address.) You can also, if you want, download the desktop app for macOS or Windows. The process is similar for starting a meeting via your browser or the desktop app. Once you’re signed in, if you’re ready to start talking immediately: Click on “Meetings” on the left-hand side of the screen You’ll get two meeting options: to start one instantly or to schedule one for later. You can either schedule a meeting or begin one immediately. For the latter, select “Meet Now.” You’ll be given the option to name your meeting and toggle your audio and video on or off. Click “Join now” when you’re ready. You can enter in a name for your meeting before it starts. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see a row of buttons. From left to right, these allow you to toggle your camera on or off, switch your mic on or off, share your screen, access more options, raise your hand, see the chat, view participants, or hang up. (There is, however, no recording feature.) Click the three dots in the middle to access additional options like entering full screen, enabling live captions, or switching off video for participants who join the call. You’ll see a row of buttons with various commands at the bottom of the screen. When the meeting starts, you may get a pop-up window with two options for adding people to the call: you can either get a link to share or send an email invite. If you don’t get this window automatically, or if you want to access it later, click on the “Show participants” button on the right side of the row of buttons. Then, in the sidebar on the right, click on the “Share Invitation” button to open up that same window. You can copy and share the meeting link or send an email invite. New participants who use your link to join the meeting will first wait in a virtual lobby and will be told “Someone in the meeting should let you in soon.” If you’re hosting the meeting, when their name appears in the “People” sidebar, click on the check mark next to their name to add them to the call. If you haven’t enabled the sidebar, you will get a small pop-up window above the “Show participants” button at the bottom of the screen to alert you that they’re waiting; click “Admit” to add them to the call. When someone joins the call, you’ll have to click the check mark to let them in. If you prefer to schedule a meeting for later, here’s how: Click on “Meetings” on the left-hand sidebar. Click the “Schedule a meeting” button. A window will pop up which will let you set the time and date for the meeting, along with a title. Click “Schedule” when you’re done. Enter in a title and choose a date and time for your meeting. The next box will give you the option to “Copy meeting invitation” to get a link to join the meeting. You can also automatically share your invite via Google Calendar and / or Microsoft Outlook, depending on what services you’re currently signed into. You can copy the meeting invite or share it via an online calendar. And that’s it! Since your meeting link is unique, you’ll be able to log onto it at any time, but this way, you and the other participants will have a scheduled time to meet.
