Welcome to your monthly summary of updates and new features from Microsoft Teams.

This month notably focuses on enhancing Teams’ usability in chats and calls on the app, desktop, and mobile. Keep reading for the lowdown on the latest features and what they mean for your business!

New chat filters for non-meeting chats

This new feature allows you to locate conversations and chat messages much quicker than you usually would. In addition to the search bar where you can filter chats by name, you can now filter for unread messages, chats, meetings, apps, and muted conversations.

System audio sharing on the web

If you use Teams online, you now have the ability to share system audio when presenting your desktop or window in a Teams meeting – this beneficial when sharing a video that includes music or a voiceover, allowing attendees to watch the video at the same time without any echoing or syncing issues.

New suggested replies in chats

Using assistive AI, suggested replies offers three short responses you can give in Teams chat based on the context of the previous message. Simply click on the answer that is most relevant to your conversation to save you time from typing a response.

Additional features to presenter mode

Yet another enhancement to the Presenter mode in Teams, a presenter can now choose which side of the screen their video displays next to the content shown on screen. You can also resize your video and the content size will adjust automatically according to your video. This feature applies to all presenter modes on Desktop and Windows.

User friendly iOS notifications

In-meeting notifications now appear as a drawer at the top of your iOS device screen which users can preview, collapse and clear with just one tap using the Clear all button, reducing distractions during meetings.
