Its tools remove the distance from social distancing.

Human interaction is one of the many perks of working in the office – personal connections are maintained, and messages can be relayed through a short walk to a desk.

Teams removes the barriers of working from a distance by having features that make digital interaction more enjoyable.

Features such as the whiteboard, the @mention, the diverse set of backgrounds, GIF’s, and the together mode put the fun in communication and enhances the user’s collaboration experience.

Teams just released its brand-new feature, ‘Coordinated Meetings.’

If you have experienced a lousy echo while using other collaboration platforms, look no further.  Coordinated Meetings, which is detailed on Microsoft’s website, allows businesses with Microsoft Teams Rooms devices and the Surface Hub to synchronize all together.

Here’s how Microsoft describes Coordinated Meetings: “Coordinated Meetings lets you set up your Teams Rooms devices and Surface Hubs so that when you join a meeting on one device, the other devices in the room are also joined to the same meeting. You can configure your cameras, speakers, and microphones so that the ones that give participants the best experience are enabled while others are disabled. This avoids the dreaded echo and feedback noise participants can experience when adding multiple devices to a meeting.”

Recording Storage. 

It can be challenging to keep up with different time zones if you have employees working from around the world.

With Teams, you can record your meeting or webinar and send the video via chat. Microsoft allocates 500GB of stream storage plus 0.5GB for every licensed Microsoft Teams account.

It’s all under one secure ecosystem.

Nothing is better than knowing that all your information is in a reliable and secure place. According to Microsoft, Teams enforces team-wide and organization-wide two-factor authentication, single sign-on through Active Directory, and encryption of data in transit at rest.

It also takes 15 seconds or less for an external user to download the Teams platform when they’re invited to join a meeting – a quick and easy solution to communicate with clients smoothly.
