Microsoft Viva Connections

Viva Connections offers a new way for leaders to shape culture and invite employees to participate in building an inclusive workplace that helps everyone succeed by giving people a curated, company-branded experience that brings together relevant news, conversations, and other resources.


Viva Connections is personalized and appears in the apps and devices employees already use every day, such as Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Viva Insights

To help people achieve balance, build better work habits, and find focus wherever and whenever they need it, we’re excited to introduce Viva Insights – available in Microsoft Teams starting today in public preview. Viva Insights gives individuals, managers, and leaders personalized and actionable insights that help everyone in an organization thrive. In addition to new productivity and wellbeing experiences and insights in Microsoft Teams, Viva Insights will, over time, bring the power of Microsoft Workplace Analytics and Microsoft MyAnalytics together under the Microsoft Viva brand.


Viva Insights is designed to protect privacy. Personal insights are visible only to the individual, and for manager and leader insights, customers can rely on safeguards like de-identification, aggregation, and differential privacy by default.

Microsoft Viva Learning

Viva Learning empowers everyone to gain targeted skills in the flow of their work by creating a central hub for learning in Microsoft Teams where people can discover, share, assign, and learn from content libraries available across the organization.

Microsoft Viva Topics

Viva Topics uses artificial intelligence (AI) to empower people with knowledge and expertise in the apps they use every day and to connect, manage, and protect content across systems and teams.


We’re pleased to announce that today, Viva Topics has reached general availability for our commercial customers.

This product came at great time for me. I was building similar concepts combining some other add-in in Microsoft team to achieve better employee experience.

I am glad Microsoft see this and go for it.

I will love to have access to the environment to trial it out and even rollout.

Well done Team Microsoft :smile::happyface:

I will go read the announcement.  My Question is this going to be another added feature we have to pay for?  My problem is I am in a "hybrid" environment.  Adoption is always hard.

Is there any feature in Viva to notify Teams users  on Announcements or any other feature like posting important messages to Teams users.
