(CU)_Microsoft Teams is looking at making things easier with an upgrade for its colleagues as well outside sources. This upgrade will include Microsoft users to invite external sources into single shard channels, have meetings and chats and also to co-author documents. The team at Microsoft are still working privately on this so that their users will get a perfect tool in a year.
Presenting in Microsoft Teams
Apart from these cool new features the team is also getting some new add-ons so that the design will “help presenters deliver content more professionally and offer meeting participants dynamic experiences”.
Instead of simply sharing the desktop when it comes time to present, Teams users can now make use of a PowerPoint integration that brings slides, meeting chat and meeting participants into a single view. By allowing the presenter to interact more easily with participants. Microsoft hopes PowerPoint Live in Teams will make for a richer and more engaging meeting experience.
For example, Standout mode pushes the presenter’s video feed in front of the slide deck, Reporter presents content above the speaker’s shoulder, while the Side-by-side option positions shared materials adjacent to the presenter’s feed.
Finally, Microsoft will deliver a new dynamic view that automatically optimizes the layout of different meeting elements (e.g. participant gallery, shared content etc.), which should make for a less cluttered view. This feature will be made widely available by the end of the month.
