Microsoft Teams is fastest growing business app in Microsoft history


At Ignite (annual conference for developers and IT professionals), Microsoft announced a broad set of new capabilities that make Teams an even more powerful hub for teamwork.

Teams launched worldwide in March 2017 and has seen multiple updates since, including education features, guest access, and tighter app integration. At Ignite, Microsoft proudly shared new capabilites of Teams:

Background blur

Now, all Teams customers can remove distractions and focus your video on what matters most. Available today. (You are welcome, BBC Dad.)

Meeting recording

Meetings are no longer just a point in time experience. With meeting recording in Teams, you or other invitees who missed the meeting can playback recorded audio, video and content at any time. Pull up a transcript, powered by Microsoft Stream, and search for keywords so you can optimize your time while getting caught up. Available today.

Cloud video interop

Bring your existing room technology investments into Teams. Through partner offerings from Polycom, BlueJeans and Pexip, a full portfolio of legacy devices can now be full-fledged audio/video participants in Teams meetings with content sharing. Polycom’s CVI offering is available now, with Pexip and BlueJeans generally available by end of October.
