Currently, the apps with their publication details and functionalities are still not revealed. Soon the list will be revealed by the company or leaked by tipsters. Although, more insights are expected to come from the company itself in the upcoming weeks.
Microsoft has currently come up with some new updates which will add up in August. The company exclaimed that the development comes at the time when users are preferring to work from their places to curb the spread of coronavirus. The new features names ‘Web Client’ will help the professional track issues/bugs, assets, routines, contacts, inventory, and more.
Web Client will let the user customize their views, rules, and edit comments to keep things and processes in order. Recently, Microsoft announces the “Together” mode to improvise the video calling experience. This feature’s objective is to reduce fatigue levels in participants during long video calls.
Feature “Together” is based on Artificial Intelligence that would place the participant in the shared background, for example, maybe an auditorium. This will let the user focus on what others are saying and sharing, thus minimizing the background distraction. This feature is yet to be brought for mobile and tablet devices.
Microsoft teams have a user base of 75 million daily active users, adding 31million just over a month. New features that will get launched in the near future aim to easy out the day-to-day in-office operation as the work-life pattern has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More exciting updates are yet to come by the end of the year and the legacy is believed to be continued for long.
