What’s New in Microsoft Teams Feature Spotlight – Favorites from Microsoft Ignite!
Hey Teams Community,
Last week was Microsoft Ignite and there were all sorts of new features announced for Microsoft Teams. One of the highlights was Mesh avatars in private preview, but my favorite was the new Together Mode innovations.
Together mode makes meeting participants feel more like they’re in the same room during virtual meetings. Meeting organizers and presenters can now assign seats to meeting participants in the Together mode view which can give a regularly scheduled meeting even more structure. There are many situations where people sit in the same seat every day for meetings and this innovation allows that to happen in a virtual space.
The other new aspect of Together mode is the ability for meeting organizers and presenters to turn on Together mode for everyone in the meeting to have the same view.
Both of these Together mode innovations are now generally available in Microsoft Teams.
