Order of raised hands

Ensure that all voices are heard and people feel seen just as in-person by seeing the order of raised hands in a meeting.

Simply click on the Participants panel to see who raised their hand and in what order. Now you know the order of who to call on first to speak so that no participant is missed.

Teams meeting recordings

 

Recording meetings in Teams allows you to review what you may have missed and helps others who could not attend catch up on their own time. Over the past year, Microsoft has shifted to saving new Teams meeting recordings to OneDrive and SharePoint to provide better control and sharing options. Microsoft has also added a number of improvements including:

  • Multi-speed playback – Now you can watch recordings at slower and faster speeds (0.5x up to 2x)
  • High-quality transcripts – Transcripts now have speaker attribution for meetings that have Teams Live Transcription turned on.
  • Indexed recordings – Recorded meetings are indexed into easier-to-consume segments based on slide transitions.
  • Auto-recording – Meeting owners can set meetings to automatically start recording.
  • Auto-expiration – Coming soon, admins will be able to set a default number of days after which newly created Teams meeting recordings will be sent to the recycle bin.

Add a description to images in chat

 

Make your Teams messages more accessible to people with disabilities by adding alternative text to images. Similar to adding alternative text in Outlook, you now can add descriptions to images in Teams chat messages by right-clicking on the image and selecting “Add alt text.”

 

This enables people who use screen readers to understand the full content of your message, even if they can’t see the image.

Meeting room capacity notifications for Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows


Teams Rooms can now notify in-room meeting participants if the room is overcapacity.

 

IT admins can define meeting room capacity for each Teams Room account and, using data from meeting room cameras that support people-counting, identify how many people are in a room.

 

A banner will automatically appear at the top of the front of the room screen to alert participants if the room is overcapacity.

Split video layout across multiple screens for Teams Rooms on Windows


Maximise screen real estate in a Teams Room with the ability to split the video gallery across all available displays when content isn’t being shared.

 

Better utilising the additional space can help focus attention on people joining remotely for a more inclusive and engaging meeting.
