New Microsoft Teams Features

I take it for granted because I get access to all the Office 365 features before they get on the market because I sit in Microsoft’s internal “dog food” deployment rings.  Now I can finally talk about some features of Teams that were released in April 2020.

Here is a reference:

Features I love are:

  • We can now see 9 streaming videos vs. the previous of 4.  The Brady bunch view.
  • Raising Hands – Yes try using it.  Helps you to control a room so you do not have people trying to talk over here.
  • Background Effects – When you do a video, instead of just blur, have a nice picture in the background.
  • Live Events Increased – will be raised from 10,000 to 20,000 through July 1, 2020.
  • End the Meeting for all participants
  • There is a new meeting dashboard.
  • New Teams App Usage reporting
  • New lobby controls
