The Microsoft release cadence has become somewhat of a runaway train these days. It’s near impossible to keep up with all the updates without help.
Sometimes you need “just the facts”. Microsoft is quite helpful in this regard and they sent us some news items (below). In addition, they have their own blog site that is worth checking out to keep up with their cadence.
One of the more exciting pieces of news revolves around the new features in Microsoft Teams. One of the new features is the ability to replace your background during video chats. You can put the company logo behind you or a cool picture or just blur the background. Another new feature is support for an additional camera in Microsoft Teams Rooms so that you can show additional information (like analog whiteboards). But that’s not the coolest part. The coolest part is that it uses Intelligent Capture to show what’s going on on the whiteboard even if the person is standing in FRONT of the whiteboard. They’re also adding in live captions and subtitles to Teams meetings, which will ensure greater inclusivity. Read the full line-up and see some examples from the Microsoft announcements here.
