Microsoft Teams Together Mode

If you have not heard, Microsoft Teams Together Mode is making waves.  It provides a new collaboration experience for users to meet within Teams.

It brings a unique perspective to meeting with people.  It is not just showing a video feed, it basically puts you in a room and all of the meeting attendees see each other from their point of view.  It is also great because it removes all the background, allowing you to meet from anywhere.  It is super unique and innovative.

It works really well for open discussion with small and large groups of people.
