Features

The more, the merrier in meetings

You can now have up to 250 participants in meetings! All the video, audio, and screen sharing you're used to in smaller meetings works for these larger meetings, too. Just right for that quarterly all-hands get-together.

PowerPoint in meetings just got better

Sharing a presentation gets some special treatment with these improvements. When you share just a PowerPoint file, it uses less bandwidth than a video stream—so if you've got bandwidth constraints, this is a great option. Participants can navigate through the slides privately, reading ahead or looking back to catch something they missed. Read more here.

Bring your Skype for Business contacts to Teams

When your organization moves from Skype for Business to Teams, your contacts will make the move with you. To see them, once you're in Teams, click Chat on the left, then Contacts at the top.

Translate chat messages

The world is our workplace here at Teams, so we're loving this feature. At the top of a message, select More options More options button > Translate to get an instant translation of the message into the language you've set for Teams! Très cool.

(If you don't see this option, talk to your admin. They may need to turn it on.)

Send code snippets in a message

You're now able to create and share a snippet of code right in a chat or channel message. Get syntax highlighting, auto-indentation, and text wrapping control, all in the programming language of your choice! To try it, look under the compose box, then select Format Expand button > Code snippet </>.

Select the Settings tab > Team code > Generate. Tell people to click Join or create a team at the bottom of their teams list, then plug the code into the Join a team with a code box at the top. This works with public and private teams.

Get important notifications while in Do not Disturb mode

Even when you need to set your status to Do not disturb, there are still some calls and 1:1 chats you don't want to miss. You can now give priority access to certain people or numbers, from bosses to besties. This means you'll get notifications about calls and 1:1 chats from these people while you're set to Do not disturb. To set it up, click your profile pic > Settings > Privacy and follow the prompts.

Easier updates for Macs

Once you move to this new type of installation for Teams on your Mac, you won't have to enter your admin credentials every time you get the latest and greatest updates for Teams. (The new installation uses a PKG file, and it replaces the earlier DMG installation format.) Also, admins can move to PKG for improved handling of Teams on Mac in managed deployments. Find instructions for using the PKG installation here.

June 26, 2018

Features

Archive your team for posterity

Need to put a team into storage? If you've got a team that's inactive, but you want to keep it around for reference or to reactivate in the future, try the new archive and restore feature. The conversations and files in a team become read-only once you archive it. You’ll still be able to search through it for stuff you need—you can even keep it as a favorite. Only team owners can archive and restore teams.

Learn how at Archive or restore a team.

A top request from you—make it easy to move between Office 365 apps and services. So, the Office 365 app launcher is rolling out to Teams on the web! Click the app launcher icon (affectionately known around here as "the waffle") in the upper left corner of Teams to switch to other apps.

Updated keyboard shortcuts

On Windows, if you click one of these link types, you'll be able to go to Teams to send that message or make that call.

May 23, 2018

Features

Create a new team from an existing team

Got the perfect team built for a type of project you do regularly? Save time creating a new team by basing it on that existing team. Your basic team structure (settings, channels, tabs, and members) gets copied to the new team and you'll be ready to go. Look for the option Create a team using an existing team as a template when you create a new team.

Delegate like a boss

Anyone with an Enterprise Voice license can now make someone else their delegate in Teams. Your delegate can receive all your incoming calls and start new calls on your behalf, too. (You'll still be able to start direct calls yourself if you want to.)

For details, go here. (Remember, this feature is available only if your Office365 subscription includes an Enterprise Voice license. Not sure if you've got one? Talk to your IT admin.)

Consult before transferring a call

Need to help a colleague or customer reach the right person? This feature lets you quickly check in with another person via chat or audio call before transferring a call to them. Anyone with an Enterprise Voice license can do this, not just delegates! To try it, when you're in a call, click More options (…) > Consult then transfer.

Call someone on a HoloLens 

Introducing Teams support for Remote Assist, a mixed-reality experience that lets you do two-way calling between the Teams desktop app and a HoloLens. This works from the Teams desktop app on Windows 10, once you have the Remote Assist app installed. When using Remote Assist in Teams, you'll be able to see the Hololens user's point of view. And, you'll be able to make annotations in their world—place arrows, draw lines, and share images—right from Teams. Read more and download a free preview of Remote Assist here.

April 18, 2018

Send a chat from a contact card

Hover over someone's profile picture to send a quick chat right from their contact card.

Auto-favorite important channels

Team owners can automatically favorite up to ten channels for their entire team, so important channels will show up in everyone's teams list. That way, new members know where to get started and everyone knows where the action is. (Team members will still be able to unfavorite a channel if it's not their thing.)

Dial out of (or into) a group call

Bring someone outside your org into a group call in Teams just by dialing their number. You've also got the option of distributing a dial-in phone number so anyone outside your org can join in when they're ready. Remember, this feature is only available in group calls right now.

Get a reminder that your team is expiring 

If your IT admin has turned on the AAD policy allowing them to set an expiration date for all teams in your org, you're now able to renew your team (and its corresponding Office 365 group) right from Teams. Get a reminder 30 days before your team is set to expire or go to team settings to renew your team before your 30-day warning.

FYI, this feature is for AAD premium members only. For more details, see Office 365 Group Expiration Policy.

April 4, 2018

Features

Improved badging in your tray or taskbar

Badges got a little better this week. Use them to check if your status is set to Available, Away, Busy, or Do not disturb. They'll also tell you if you have unseen activity or if Teams is offline, got disconnected, or ran into an error.

February 7, 2018

Anonymous join is here

Need to meet with someone outside of your organization? No problem. This feature lets you send a Teams meeting invite to anyone with a valid email address (even if you're scheduling your Teams meeting from Outlook). When you invite someone, they'll receive an email containing instructions and a link to your meeting. Invitees won't need to download Teams, unless they want some extra functionality, like screen sharing.

Meeting lobby for out-of-org participants

Anonymous meeting attendees now have a virtual lobby to wait in as a meeting gets started. That way, meeting organizers can bring in their out-of-org participants whenever they want. Check out our recent blog post for more meetings-related features.

Start a Teams call from a link

You're now able to start a call in Teams whenever you click a call link (on a website, for example). If you opt to start your call in Teams, you'll be able to place your call or type a message and send it to the recipient.

Share chat history

Now, when you add someone new to a group chat, the chat history can come along, too.

@mentions in chats

Whether you're chatting one-on-one, in a group, or in a meeting, you're now able to get someone's attention in the chat by typing @ before their name. They'll get a notification in their activity feed.

Mute a chat

Want fewer notifications? This feature lets you put a temporary hold on notifications for a particular chat. Don't worry—you'll still receive new messages; you just won't be alerted. This feature works for one-one-one, group, and meeting chats.

Quick reply to chats

Respond to an incoming chat message in our Windows or Mac apps by directly sending a text reply from an incoming notification. You'll be able to respond to one message at a time. Quick replies are text-only and limited to 1,000 characters.

Restore a deleted channel

You're now able to restore any channel you deleted up to 21 days after taking action. Go to the team name, then click More options More options button > Manage team > Channels to get started.

Mute everyone in a meeting

If you ever need to mute all the other participants in a meeting, head to your meeting roster and select Mute all. Each individual will get a notification and be able to unmute themselves if they need to.

Have your meeting call you back

If you've got a Skype for Business Audio Conferencing license, you're now able to dial out to your own phone number from a current meeting. This allows you to transfer meeting audio to your phone if you're having network problems or on a slow connection.

Audio conferencing in channel meetings

Like a chat

You're now able to like a message in a chat just like you would in a channel! This makes responding to messages and approving decisions a lot easier—no typing necessary.

Request and grant screen control

Now, you're able to request control of someone else's desktop or grant control of your screen while you're sharing. While you're in control of someone's screen, you'll be able to use your own mouse and keyboard to select or move content or type and make edits. To start controlling someone else's screen, click Request control when you're in a meeting and wait for approval.

Resize images in Wiki

If you've pasted any images into a Wiki, you're now able to resize them instantly. Hover over the image, then click and drag the resizer until you get the size you want.

Introducing assignment notifications

When a teacher creates a new assignment, students will receive a notification in their activity bells and a rich assignment card will appear in the General channel’s Conversation tab with a due date and link to the assignment’s details.

Calls in Teams are here!

Teams is supporting voice calls in a big way. With the right license (read on), here's what you'll be able to do:

  • Make calls to people outside of Teams or Skype for Business

  • See dedicated spaces for your contacts, call history, and voicemail

  • Personalize your voicemail greeting

  • Transfer calls (to people inside and outside of Teams)

  • Use Enhanced 911 (E911) in Teams to get location-based emergency calling

Look for the new Calls app on the left side of Teams. You need the Enterprise Voice license to see it. If you don’t see the app, talk to your IT admin about getting a license.

Here are a couple of other things you’ll get with the Enterprise Voice license:

Mask caller ID

There’s a new setting that lets you hide your phone number any time you make a call to someone outside of Teams. Talk to your IT admin to set it up.

TTY devices

You’ll now be able to speak to people in Teams using a USB-connected phone and a TTY device. Turn on TTY support in Settings. Click your profile picture, then Settings > Calls. When you get a call, plug a headset into your TTY device and you're good to go.

Finally, something for everyone, no matter what license you have:

Calls to and from Skype for Business

Missing your friends on Skype for Business? Give them a call from Teams. You'll be able to receive calls from anyone on Skype for Business, too.

Read more on our blog.

Coming soon

Find new tabs faster: Whenever someone adds a new tab at the top of a channel you belong to, you'll see a New badge over the tab name. It'll disappear once you click into the tab or after the tab has been up and running for a week.
