Microsoft Teams Meetings deliver a rich, high-definition audio and video experience that enable users to interact and collaborate easily, regardless of the device or network.
Whether it’s one-on-one video calls on mobile and desktop devices, conference meetings held across boardrooms all over the world, or global live events delivered to thousands of people, Teams meetings provides a seamless, scalable, and secure experience for users. And, because Teams supports a range of best-in-class devices, partners can offer customers more immersive experiences to improve collaboration across teams.
New features in Microsoft Teams make your meetings more natural, more engaging, and ultimately, more human. Whether you work in finance, healthcare, oil and gas or transportation, you'll have benefit from.
It’s all about giving people the tools to collaborate, to stay connected, and to discover new ways of being more productive from anywhere.
This feature uses AI segmentation technology to digitally place participants in a shared background, making it feel like they’re sitting in the same room with everyone else in the meeting or class. Together mode makes meetings more engaging by helping you focus on other people’s faces and body language and making it easier to pick up on the non-verbal cues that are so important to human interaction.
Dynamic View is a set of enhancements that gives you more control over how you see shared content and other meeting participants.
Using AI, meetings dynamically optimize shared content and video participants. New controls that include the ability to show shared content and specific participants side-by-side lets you personalize the view to suit your preferences and needs.
In Teams Meetings, you can now add video filters to subtly adjust lighting levels and soften the focus of the camera to customize your appearance.
Reflect Messaging Extension
The Reflect Messaging Extension gives leaders an easy way to check in with their team, either in general, or about a specific topic like work-life balance, the status of a project, current events, or organizational changes. Coming soon.
Non-verbal cues like smiles and head nods can be difficult to notice in online meetings, making it challenging for presenters to gauge audience reactions and for participants in large meetings to share a sentiment without interrupting the meeting flow. Soon, you will be able to react during a meeting using emojis that will appear to all participants.
During meetings, chat has become a lively space for conversation and idea-sharing, and offers an option for people to participate in the discussion without having to jump in verbally. With chat bubbles, chats sent during a Teams meeting will surface on the screens of all meeting participants.
Speaker Attribution for Live Captions & Transcripts
In addition to live captions as a way to follow along with what is being said, Microsoft has added speaker attribution to captions so that everyone knows who is speaking.
Interactive meetings for 1,000 participants and overflow
When you want to bring more people together to watch a presentation or discussion, Teams can support a view-only meeting experience for up to 20,000 participants.
Updated Microsoft Whiteboard
Visual collaboration tools make meetings and teaching environments more effective and inclusive. Whiteboard in Teams will soon be updated with new features including faster load times, sticky notes, text, and drag and drop capabilities.
Meetings have always been the foundation of teamwork and with so much time now spent in meetings, you had better make sure you're getting the most out of them … before, during and after.
These steps will help you get the most out of Teams Meetings, Large Meetings and Live Events.
