Microsoft has today announced innovations in Teams and Viva to empower hybrid work, while bringing new meeting experiences with enhancements to Teams Rooms including new video layouts, Whiteboard experiences, Fluid components and more.
The company is also bringing a curated set of guided meditations and mindfulness exercises from Headspace to the Viva Insights app in Teams to help users start their day grounded, relax their mind before a big presentation, or disconnect from work in the evening.
“We’re also committed to building experiences that put everyone on equal footing—whether they’re together in a conference room in Atlanta,” says Microsoft.
To help remote participants establish their presence in the room and maximize inclusion, Teams Rooms will expand screen real estate using new video layouts that disperse the video gallery across multiple displays when content isn’t shared. The increased space means remote participants show up larger and more true to life. We’re also bringing more features from desktop to Teams Rooms this summer.
