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. Viva Learning makes learning a natural part of your day - seamlessly connecting into the day to day for our 115 million daily active users in Teams. You can chat about learnings and training, share content via chat, and pin curated resources collections to Teams channels and dedicated tabs – and much more.

Microsoft Viva Topics
Viva Topics uses artificial intelligence (AI) to empower people with knowledge and expertise in Microsoft Teams and the Microsoft 365 apps they use every day and to connect, manage, and protect content across systems and teams.

Viva Topics is built on the content and platform services of Microsoft Teams and the Microsoft Graph, and will deliver knowledge directly through the Teams user experience later this year. We’re pleased to announce that today, Viva Topics has reached general availability for our commercial customers.
