Microsoft Details Teams Feature Roadmap

Microsoft Details Teams Feature Roadmap

The number was disclosed while announcing new Teams features including instant language translation and Cortana integration.

Microsoft's Slack competitor, Microsoft Teams, is turning a year old this week and to celebrate the company is unveiling some new features today. Additionally, she said, almost 70% of Skype for Business enterprise customers have begun using Teams.

And despite market concern at Cortana's future, Microsoft said it will add Cortana voice interactions for Teams-enabled devices.

While the new models will inevitably pick up hardware upgrades, Microsoft is also now working on upgrading the Surface Hub 2 UI. To help participants see you more clearly, the system will blur out a distracting background, putting the focus of the video on you rather than any clutter behind.

First off is cloud recording, which will provide "one-click meeting recordings with automatic transcription and timecoding, enabling all team members the ability to read captions, search within the conversation, and playback all or part of the meeting". In the future, it will also include facial recognition, so remarks can be attributed to specific meeting attendees.

Teams, which began rolling out to Office 365 subscribers previous year, is Microsoft's answer to the Slack messaging platform.

The latest enhancements break down along the lines of features and functionality, calling, and device support, Wright said. This will allow a person to "to easily make a call, join a meeting, or add other people to a meeting in Teams using spoken, natural language". Team Meetings will also support audio and HD video conference room systems from Lenovo, HP, Logitech and others, along with any Skype Room systems. Also coming is a Direct Routing feature which will allow users to use existing telephony infrastructures with Teams.

The new calling capabilities, which include consultative transfer (for getting an OK before transferring a call to somebody), call delegation, and federation, will be available in the second quarter, Wright said.

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) says 200K organizations now use its Teams, a Slack alternative, up from 125K in September. The last addition is mobile sharing in meetings, so meeting attendees can share a live video stream, photos, or the screen from their mobile device.
