Microsoft Team has some news for you!

It seems like yesterday when we all purchased the MICROSOFT TEAMS CONCISE BEGINNERS GUIDE: How to start using Microsoft Teams for Online Meetings, Record video conference and Setup Virtual Classes – but it’s actually been over three months!

Ever since the pandemic began, Microsoft Team has become a primary mode of communication for organizations and schools. Hence,  the software giant has been at it to produce a “Together Mode” that will allow you to create a virtual live avatar of yourself. This design will essentially improve official engagements. It is using AI to segment your face and shoulders – only to put you and your co-worker and classmates together in a virtual space. 

This space can be anything – a coffee shop, a classroom, board room, etc. Some people have already gotten a chance to experience this mode and they have given their verdict.  At first, some found it to be gimmicky as you can actually pat the shoulders of the person you’re talking to. This mean, virtual high-fives are real now. But really, it’s an exceptional experience as it blocks all the distractions and allows you to conduct a normal meeting.

Usually, when you’re video chatting with someone, it’s hard to pick up non-verbal cues. But with this feature, you can actually notice minor body movements and understand the hard to pick up cues while being geographically apart.

This mode will be available for use in August. Initially, the auditorium view will be available but don’t worry as the software giant is working hard to provide more views in the future!

Apart from this, a dynamic view is also on the cards for Microsoft Teams. This way, participants can easily share their content or any material that may be important and useful during meetings. Furthermore, some awesome video filters and live reactions are also on their way! You can use the filters to adjust the lighting or increase the focus of the camera. Live reactions come with emojis – which as we know are the language of the future!

The most fantastic and ambitious feature till date has to be the aim to get 1,000 to 20,000 participants on call so that people from all over the world could easily attend webinars and conferences. With this, Team will offer live transcripts along with captions and subtitles so that no miscommunication occurs.

Now all you need is a USB Headset with Noise Cancelling Microphone and Volume Controller for Conference Calls, Softphone Conversation, Clear Chat, Online Course, etc. because Microsoft Teams will soon be equipped to handle the rest!
