One of the new features is Cortana integration. In the future, it will also include facial recognition, so remarks can be attributed to specific meeting attendees. There will also be inline message translation, so you can easily understand other participants that speak other languages. Alongside Cortana and translation, Microsoft is also adding cloud recording for meetings with automatic transcription and timecoding, background blur on video, mobile sharing for meetings, and the ability to find and add Skype Room Systems into any meetings. Those same voice commands will work with conference room equipment and IP phones, too. Video callers will be able to blur their backgrounds so their conversation mate's eyes are drawn only to them (or if they don't want people to know they're making the call from their couch).
Let us not forget why Microsoft made a decision to build out Teams, it was because of the success of Slack which makes you wonder if buying the competing software would have been a better move?
Participants in a meeting will be able to share "a live video stream, photos, or their screen" from their smartphone.
Finally, a number of enterprise-grade features are planned, including consultative transfer, call delegation, and federation.
Additionally, Microsoft is now working with more OEMs (like Lenovo and HP) and partners (like Logitech, Crestron, and Polycom) to make sure Teams is enabled on more calling and meeting room devices.
These are all definitely some exciting features, helping give Microsoft Teams some more edge over the popular collaboration tool, Slack.
