Content from Camera Feature Coming to Microsoft Teams


Get ready to be able to show off documents and whiteboard presentations on Microsoft Teams as a new feature is on its way for the video collaboration app. In a new post on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap, Microsoft provided details on its new “Content from Camera” feature, which is scheduled to arrive in Teams in September. 

The feature will help meeting participants easily read content from physical whiteboards and documents. Content from Camera on Microsoft Teams will use special image-processing software to enable the webcam to mask out people writing on a physical whiteboard. This capability should make it easier for remote participants to clearly see what is being written. The Content from Camera feature is presently only available for Microsoft Teams Rooms, and it is not supported on the desktop client.  

To use the Content from Camera in Teams, all you need is a laptop or PC with a built-in camera or with an attached USB camera.  

Content from Camera is yet another feature Microsoft is adding to Microsoft Teams over the next few weeks. In a previous blog, we described the new reporter and side-by-side layouts being added to presenter mode in Microsoft Teams. Also, Microsoft recently has introduced a feature that allows participants to translate slide content in PowerPoint Live presentations.
