Microsoft continues to add new features to its Teams collaboration service to make it more engaging for customers. This time, the developers have integrated the ability to connect to meetings in Teams via Apple CarPlay. This allows users to participate in audio meetings directly from their vehicle. According to reports, distribution of the mentioned feature will begin this month.
Going forward, Microsoft Teams will continue to receive new features. For example, the integration of smart camera technology is planned soon. It will automatically detect the speaking participant in the meeting and focus the camera on him. The idea is to make it easier for all the participants in the conversation to understand who exactly is speaking at each specific moment of the meeting. More Teams mobile users will soon have quick access to chat and collaboration boards, as well as mute and camera mute tools.
Microsoft is also planning to integrate Cameo into PowerPoint, which makes it easy to add Teams videos to your presentation. This feature is expected to become available to users early next year.
Note that over the past few months, Microsoft has been actively promoting its collaboration service. Teams has a reported monthly user base of approximately 250 million people. Microsoft continues to compete in this segment with Zoom, Google and other collaboration platform companies.
