It was only a couple of months ago when Microsoft began allowing meeting participants to control what they see in Teams. Adding more functionality to Dynamic view, presenters will soon be able to use custom layouts to individually decide how content shows up for participants during the meeting. Imagine a presenter showing a PowerPoint slide and then seeing the presenter’s video feed being added to the foreground of the slide they are showing – just like seeing a moderator in front of his green screen.
Have you ever wished to split groups in a workshop session so they could work on individual projects? That’s no wishful thinking anymore. One of the most requested features on Teams is about to be rolled-out globally: Breakout rooms. You can easily split your participants into smaller groups to leverage brainstorming sessions or boost workgroup discussions. The real gamechanger: Presenters can just hop between each group, make announcements and even close breakout rooms to bring people back to the main session.
New Teams meeting extensions will furthermore allow you to integrate apps and enable custom meeting experiences in Teams. Meeting organizers can access apps from either AppSource or the Teams store and add them as they schedule the meeting.
Much more, Microsoft is also working on centralizing recaps once your meeting is finished. Recaps with the meeting recording, transcript, chat, shared files, and more will automatically get created in Teams and will also be available in your Outlook calendar by going to the meeting placeholder. Looking for a solution to share all of these with external partners? You just have to wait a little bit longer as soon, meeting recordings will automatically be stored—like other files are today—in Microsoft 365 so they can be shared, easily and compliantly, with external participants.
