Today we are going to take a look at the top 12 new features in Microsoft Teams. Microsoft has been investing substantially in Microsoft Teams
with all this remote work it makes sense it's one of their highest priority
Something makes a lot of disrupting sound for all of your other attendees in the meeting, with noise suppression, you can very quickly eliminate all of those sounds.
Let's go up to our profile picture in the top right-hand corner and click on that within the menu let's go down to settings within settings click on devices within device settings there is now a new option here for noise suppression, and by default, it's set to auto so what this means is that teams will determine the best level of noise suppression. There's also the option of high with high this suppresses all background sound that isn't speech and this will also require the highest level of system resources, so if your computer's already struggling with Microsoft Teams I don't recommend setting it too high.
No one in your meeting will have any idea that you just switched devices.
If you love it at work or maybe at school, you can now use it at home previously. You could only use the mobile app and the web app for consumer use. What do I mean by that well maybe you
have an outlook.com email account. You can now use Microsoft Teams you can use it to plan get-togethers or maybe to organize your soccer schedule.
You get all the power of Microsoft Teams you can use things like together mode screen sharing, and there's no time limit.
You don't have to resort to 45-minute zoom sessions unless of course, you are using the 45-minute limit as an excuse for cutting
short family time.
The best way to think of this is this is like a very much improved version of Skype, and best of all, it's entirely free.
Switch between multiple different account types, and you could even add additional accounts. In the past, you had to sign out and then sign back in.
Especially if you had several accounts, it was a massive pain jumping between all of your accounts, so it's nice to see that this experience is now improved.
This way, you can get immediate feedback while a meeting is going on.
I just posted our website to the team to look at, and I want to make sure anyone else who joins this team sees this post to pin the message I hover over, and when I click on the ellipses within this menu there's now a new option called "pin".
You can now Appear offline and set the status for some duration.
You can prevent attendees from unmuting themselves.
You can see all of the activity across my team; for example, I could see how many of my colleagues have been active.
I could filter down for the types of activities that I want to look at and I can also specify how many days back I want to look at the dashboard.
This greatly simplifies creating a new team.
Alright well, that was a quick look at what's new in Microsoft Teams.
