With the hope to extend the power of Teams beyond work scenarios to your personal life, Microsoft has now introduced new Teams features that are designed to alleviate the need for disparate tools and instead offer one central hub for individuals, groups, and families to collaborate, stay connected and organized. Mind you! The new features have started rolling out in preview to Microsoft Teams mobile app across iOS and Android and will be fully rolled out in the coming weeks.
Let’s take a look at some of the features that are available in preview of Microsoft Teams mobile app:
Keeps all stay connected with text chat and video calling
Microsoft Teams will become the messaging hub for all personal chats and video and voice calls, with fun features like sharing GIFs, photos, videos, documents, and even location already integrated. Users can create groups to chat and call, to stay connected with family and friends.
Provides great way to pick up from where one has left
Microsoft Teams users will be able to stay organized by sharing lists, documents, and calendars all within the group dashboard. The Teams will allow users to easily go back and see the chats, tasks, pictures, videos, and group calendars shared within the dashboard, providing a great way to pick up conversations or projects where they left off.
Allows you to share important documents
Microsoft Teams integrates with other Microsoft 365 apps so users can easily share from Word, Excel, and PowerPoint right from within the Teams app. All documents are also stored on OneDrive and users can now access these documents across other devices – whether it is for planning a family budget or preparing kids’ schedules.
Makes it easy to share your location
Easy location sharing is available as part of these new personal features as well. This enables the users to tell their loved ones if they’re running late or if they’re still at the grocery store and can get extra milk. Microsoft Teams location sharing will make it easy to share your location and find your friends for that park picnic—or in the crowd at a concert.
Apart from these features, Microsoft Teams will also come with a Safe that allows its users securely store and share important information like passwords, rewards numbers, or login information. These information can be shared directly via Microsoft Teams app with families and friends. The Safe feature in Microsoft Teams app is supported by the security of two-factor authentication and end-to-end encryption.
