Microsoft Teams Updated to Support Apple Car Play, and More
Microsoft Teams has just been updated to add Apple Car Play integration, with a new calling interface that displays contacts, voicemail, and, calling history in a single location. The update also offers built-in spam call protection, reverse number lookup, and the ability to merge calls (via The Verge).
According to Microsoft, the Teams app will soon let users transfer calls between mobile and desktop, allowing people to quickly move locations in the middle of an audio or video call.
Once this feature rolls out, it will let people join without audio on an additional device, or simply transfer the call and end it automatically on other devices. Microsoft says this feature will be available in early 2021.
People who regularly record meetings in Microsoft Teams will also see some new options. You’ll be able to record meetings to SharePoint or OneDrive, providing greater flexibility than being limited to Microsoft’s Stream service. That will also make it easier to share calls or transcripts with people outside a Teams organization.
With CarPlay support, Microsoft Teams users will be able to use Siri to initiate or answer calls. Android Auto support has not yet been announced.
