Microsoft has released more updates to the Teams platform this month that will have a big impact for users.
The updates include new features to better support speakers in meetings and enable better collaboration. Our Cloud Solutions Architect, Mark Allford, has given an overview of what these are.
So, what are some of the changes?
Microsoft digital whiteboard
Finding it difficult to collaborate and brainstorm ideas whilst remote working? The Microsoft Whiteboard gives users the flexibility to either present the digital whiteboard in read-only mode, so when presenting you can illustrate explanations to your attendees or allow others to edit and collaborate for those team sessions where everyone has an input.
Live captions with speaker attribution
Microsoft Teams added speaker attribution to live captions so that you can see who is speaking along with what’s being said, so you won’t have to ask your colleagues to repeat themselves for the third time!
Spotlight an individual
Presenters can now pin an individual video feed for all attendees to see during a Teams meeting. Once pinned, the individual identified as the spotlight will be the main video shown to all participants.
Prevent attendees from unmuting
Ensure that there are no unwanted interruptions by preventing attendees from unmuting their mic during a meeting. You can enable specific attendees to unmute when they raise their hands which can work perfectly for large conferences or classroom scenarios.
Transform your Teams Meeting into a virtual stage with a new advanced production option for broadcasts.
