Microsoft Upgrades Teams to Meet Remote Work Needs

Microsoft is meeting the needs of many remote workers with their product, “Microsoft Teams.” Engadget recently reported a sweeping update of Teams’ functionality and services. The developments include virtual meeting rooms that closely mimic an actual room. Custom screen layouts make for a cleaner look for group presentations. And, max team participation increases from 5,000 participants to 25,000.

On this Business Casual snippet, hosts Daniel Litwin and Tyler Kern take a closer look at Microsoft’s updates and whether they’re serving the needs of their customers. Litwin and Kern take a look at usage data to see if Microsoft is successfully drawing in new clientele.

  • Updates include “Together mode,” breakout rooms, auto recaps, and custom visual orientation.
