An exciting month from Microsoft Teams with some eagerly anticipated roll outs, read on for our roundup.

 

What’s New: Meetings


AI-based noise suppression


Real-time AI noise suppression feature automatically removes unwelcome background noise during your meetings. The AI-based noise suppression analyses your audio feed filtering out the noise and retaining only the speech signal. You can also control how much noise suppression you want, including a high setting to suppress more background noise. No more annoying dogs barking or doorbells, keeping the focus firmly on you.

 


New Together mode scene selection

 

Together mode helps you feel together even when you're apart. Microsoft have introduced new scene selections to transport your team to a variety of settings, helping you set the tone and create a unique meeting experience. From coffee shops to conference rooms and amphitheaters there's plenty to choose from.

Polls in Teams Meetings

 

Conduct more engaging and productive meetings with Polls in Teams, a seamless experience powered by Forms. As a meeting organiser or presenter you have the option to prepare, launch and evaluate polls at any point during the meeting. Attendees can easily view and respond to polls in the chat pane.

 

 

Full screen support in new meetings experience


Microsoft heard you, full screen mode is back! Full screen mode on Windows allows the whole meeting window to fill up the  screen, removing all other screen elements, including the title bar on the top and task bar on the bottom. On Mac OS, full screen mode maximizes the meeting window and the title bar is hidden.

Start an instant meeting from your mobile device


You'll now find the familiar Meet Now icon on the calendar tab and in the Teams channel helping you connect with your team instantly. Once you start your meeting, you can use any messaging app on your mobile device to share the invite or add participants directly to the meeting, and anyone in the Teams channel can join without an invite.
