New Feature Rollouts
Well, what can we say? The Microsoft Teams rollouts from Ignite look like the most exciting yet and we can't wait to share them with you!
Integrated Communication Access Realtime Translation
You can now view captions coming from a CART (Communication Access Realtime Translation) provider within the Microsoft Teams meeting window instead of a secondary window.
Follow along with what is being said without having to choose between the captions and presentation. Meeting organizers and participants can enable CART captions from their meeting options.
Content from Camera
Content from camera in Teams enables intelligent capture which allows you to share content from physical whiteboards and documents in a high-quality way during meetings.
You can use the camera on your laptop, a secondary USB webcam, or a document camera. Just like the experience available in Microsoft Teams Rooms, the intelligent content capture technology will detect, crop, and frame the asset while enhancing the content in the video stream. People standing in front of the asset can be made transparent so everyone can see content clearly.
Microsoft Loop components in Teams chat
Loop components allow you to create live, collaborative components that can be edited in the flow of your work, whether in chat, meetings, email or documents.
The first part of this vision is rolling out now to Teams chat, enabling you to edit messages inline and avoid a long back-and-forth chat thread. Users also can send a message with a Loop component, like a table, action items, or a list and have it co-authored and edited by everyone in line.
‘Top hits’ provides a new search result section
We are making it easier for you to search for and find the information you need by introducing “top hits” on Teams. This new section appears at the top of your auto-suggest results.
Top hits gather the most relevant results for you across the different search domains—people, group chats, teams, channels, and files—and reduce the need to scroll through all the search results, helping you quickly find what you need.
Updated search results page in Teams
A new search experience in Teams will make finding messages, people, answers, and files faster and more intuitive.
A redesigned search results page provides better context and faster results, with AI-powered relevance based on the people and content you engage with most in Teams and other Microsoft 365 applications.
