Online collaboration spaces like Zoom and Microsoft Teams have all but become permanent staples of our lives amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and in light of this they’ve all been striving to make working from home easier and less headache-inducingly surreal. Microsoft Teams has now added a bunch of new features aimed at making its in-app experience more personal.
Microsoft announced a slew of updates to Teams’ online call and group chat functions on desktop, web, and mobile. Firstly, in an attempt to recreate family gatherings and nights out with the squad, Microsoft is making “Together mode” a key feature of Teams’ online calls.
Together mode changes up the layout of an online call, adding in a snazzy background like a coffee shop, beach resort or even the ocean floor, and positioning callers around a table or perching them on rocks and coral outcrops. While it might not eliminate the headache of video calling entirely, it’ll certainly make it more entertaining.
