Welcome to the latest round up of Teams updates. This month, Microsoft have made a goal of creating more efficient and engaging meetings for all Team users.

From new rich search options on desktop and mobile, to advanced security settings to protect your files, these new features will help promote a more productive and safe work environment. Read our summary below to find out what these updates mean for your business.

New search results page experience

Finding messages, people, answers, and files has become a lot faster and more intuitive with this new feature. Microsoft have added a new ‘Microsoft Search’ page which shows the top results from each domain, bookmark, and acronym. The new search results page includes preview message results providing more context, more discoverable filters, and previews for files that are relevant based on the people and content you engage with most in Teams and other Office 365 apps.

Improved search experience in mobile app

You can now receive suggestions as you type in the search bar, showing the top results for your answer. In addition to searching for people, chats, and files, you can now search for meetings making it easier for you to find details about the meeting. Another new way you can find a meeting is by scrolling to past and future dates in the calendar using a date picker.

Customer Lockbox for Microsoft Teams

Already available on Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, Customer Lockbox ensures that Microsoft cannot access your content to carry out a service operation without your explicit approval. To add an extra level of security to your data on Teams, simply tick ‘Require approval for all data access requests’ in the Microsoft 365 admin centre.

Casting from Teams desktop to Teams Rooms

You can now display content from your Teams desktop to a wirelessly connected Teams Rooms using Teams casting. Additionally, you can broadcast your screen and cast content locally stored on your device or via Office 365.

Automated webinar invite

You no longer have to send separate emails to invite guests to a webinar. When an attendee registers to a webinar, the invite will now automatically be added to their calendar. This allows attendees to plan ahead and adjust their schedule around the event.
