Are you using the brand-new Teams yet? Microsoft is in the process of launching an updated version of Teams, their video conferencing, collaboration, and chat platform. This latest release promises to make your work faster and easier – something that all of us can appreciate, right?
The fresh, revamped Teams is like a superhero among apps for both Windows and Mac. It’s faster than ever, zipping along at double the speed of the classic version. And the best part? It’s become more efficient by shedding some weight, consuming up to 50% less memory and disk space.
Microsoft went back to the drawing board and gave Teams a makeover, making it simpler and more adaptable.
With the New Microsoft Teams, you can expect:
1. Enhanced compatibility with third-party apps.
2. Better support for calling phones outside of the Teams environment.
3. Faster access to meetings, so you won’t be left waiting.
This upgraded version of Teams uses some nifty technology that allows it to share resources with your browser, reducing its memory and disk space requirements. What’s more, initial test results indicate that Teams is now twice as fast when it comes to loading the app, joining meetings, and switching between chats and channels.
And the good news isn’t limited to Windows users; Teams on Mac is also benefiting from this performance boost.
Microsoft is confident that this update will be a game-changer for your productivity. They’ve made improvements to the user interface, including a convenient “mark all as read” feature for your activities.
In addition, they’re introducing Copilot, an AI assistant that can summarize key points from your chats and calls, essentially acting like your very own personal assistant – just without the coffee runs.
So, are you ready to make the switch to the new and improved Teams? It’s currently rolling out. To check if it’s available for you, simply look at the top left corner of your Teams app. If you see “try the new Teams,” you can simply flick the switch and give it a try.
