New Features Enhance Microsoft Teams for Hybrid and Remote Work


In the last year, Microsoft has introduced more than 450 features in Microsoft Teams to help people work synchronously and asynchronously in hybrid and remote work environments. In July, the company announced more features to enhance the AI-powered hybrid work experience.  

Excel Live, for example, lets people collaborate on workbooks in real-time in Teams meetings With Excel Live, the Microsoft Teams meeting window itself becomes the canvas, so anyone in the meeting can jump in and edit a workbook without ever leaving the meeting screen.  

Microsoft also has introduced Collaborative Annotations to Teams, which allows all meeting participants to draw, type and react on top of content shared in a meeting using the Microsoft Whiteboard toolset.  

Video Clip is another new feature in Teams that allows users to record, send and view short videos. You can capture your video and then deliver your message instantly, and your recipient can play it back at their convenience.   

Microsoft also announced the general availability of Teams Connect Shared Channels, which lets users collaborate with people inside and outside of the organization in one shared space where everyone can work chat, meet, share, co-author files and develop apps together.
