New!

  • Microsoft Whiteboard Integration (commercial preview)
    • Microsoft Whiteboard in Teams meetings empowers meeting attendees from the same tenant to participate in the conversation regardless of the device you use or where you are. Whether joining from the meeting room or remotely, you can start a new board in the Teams meeting (currently supported on desktop, web and Surface Hub – coming soon to mobile). The board is automatically shared with meeting attendees. Users can ink together in real-time on the board.  On Surface Hub, Users can launch the native Whiteboard app to enable an even richer collaboration experience with features such as sticky notes, images, and gridlines.  To enable Whiteboard in a Teams meetings on Surface Hub, please turn on feature here
      shub-onetouch whiteboard_2.png
    • Note: For richer collaboration, please download the latest Microsoft Whiteboard App from the Store (requires User sign-in).
  • Switch cameras automatically
    • Microsoft Teams on Surface Hub now supports switching cameras automatically.  The camera will use motion and face detection to focus on who's talking.  A light appears under each camera.
    • Note: In this update, Users will have to manually change settings to "Auto" while in a Teams meeting via Settings.

 

Improved

These updates provide user experience and reliability improvements.

  • Reduced echo emitting from speakers in meetings
  • Improved error handling when account is not licensed
  • Fixed layout issues for preview video in meetings
  • Fixed an issue to dismiss notifications when incoming calls are declined
  • Disabled dial pad when Enterprise Voice is not available

Great to see these improvements. Are there plans to enable centre camera by default for Surface Hubs with additional camera's attached?

Senior Member

Great that you managed to have camera switching ;) 

 

Nice to see improvements coming in. Do we still need a USB key to enable support for Teams or is there an option in settings now? If not, any news on when it will arrive? Thanks

Will the Whiteboard feature also be enabled when Sharing in a 1:1 Teams Session? Now it only becomes available for Teams Meetings.

Occasional Contributor

Great updates. When will camera Auto Switching be enabled as default and not require manual user intervention. Thanks.

With this update I'm seeing problems with 'Live Events' and the Surface hub being a 'Presenter'.

 

Anyone else seeing any bugs / crashing issues with Teams on the Surface Hub?

 

Cheers

@Frank Rijt-van regarding support for WB in 1:1 calls - this is something we are aware off and we will include as part of the general availability of the new whiteboard in the coming months.
