New Microsoft Teams Client Supports VDI

 Pretty important announcement.  The new Microsoft Teams client app now supports VDI.

OneDrive for Business Vision

Back in October, the OneDrive team made an announcement around the next generation of OneDrive for Business -

There are a lot of new interesting capabilities and vision that are part of this announcement.  Here are a few of my takeaways:

  • The OneDrive home has been optimized to help you quickly and easily identify or find files that you need to work with.
  • There are several new views like meetings, people, etc. where files and content are presented to you based on how you work.
  • The OneDrive home screen on the web has been brought to Teams and Outlook providing you a consistent way to find your files.
  • There is a vision statement on the capabilities that will become available with Copilot.  Instead of you trying to click around and dig in views, you will ask Copilot questions and it will find and organize information, documents and content for you.
  • Copilot will then assist in sharing documents with coworkers when reading and it will keep you up to date on changes documents that you interact with in a conversational engagement.

Pretty cool.  Keep watching that Copilot innovation.
