Microsoft Teams Unveils Game-Changing Upgrade for Windows and Mac

Other notable improvements include Teams’ automatic selection of light or dark mode based on system settings, better support for users with color sensitivity by using Windows 11 contrast themes, and enhanced keyboard shortcuts for easier navigation between activity feed and chat threads. Additionally, the “mark all as read” feature for activity and chats or channels is set to debut soon.

Microsoft’s AI assistant, Copilot, plays a role in this upgrade, working alongside users to enhance task management. Copilot can analyze chats and calls, providing concise summaries of key points, action items, and decisions. These summaries can be easily shared and collaborated on within Teams. Utilizing Microsoft Graph, Copilot can scour through documents, presentations, emails, calendar invites, notes, and contacts to compile relevant information into a single, accessible location.

The new Microsoft Teams is currently rolling out, with Windows and Mac users having the opportunity to install or upgrade automatically from the “classic Teams” in the coming months. This update promises to elevate the Teams experience, making collaboration and communication more efficient than ever before.
