How To Send A Video Chat Message In Microsoft Teams


YT THUMB - How To Send Video Chat Message.png


In this video, I provide a quick preview of how to send a Microsoft Teams video chat message. Microsoft finally added the ability for users to record and send up to a 60 second video message to colleagues. At the time of recording this video, the Microsoft Teams video chat feature was only available in the public preview and on desktop (seriously…mobile totally seems like the better use-case for this feature but anyway). Its super simple to use the feature, click the video icon to the left of the send button on the compose message box, record, trim the video and click send. At the end of this video, I also talk about my attempt to find out where these video files are stored (spoiler: I was unable to figure that out – so if you know, please do comment below).

What are your thoughts about this feature? Is it comparable to the same feature on Slack (I’ve used Slack in a limited capacity).

Are you using macOS in this video? I'm keen to know if this feature is now available on Teams for mac. It's not appearing as of now.

@adminfam I am using a Windows computer in this video. This feature was launched in October 2022 however, there is usually a lag before it hits all Teams devices.
