Microsoft has launched the personal version of the Microsoft Teams. The new service is almost similar to Microsoft Teams which the business uses. This service will allow people to video call, chat, and share locations, calendars, and files easily
As introduced in the preview version in November, Microsoft is going to offer free 24 hours video calls. You can connect with 300 people in a group video all of which will last for 24 hours. Eventually, free group calls will be limited to 100 people for an hour; however, Microsoft didn’t specify when that would kick in.
Firstly launched on iOS and Android, now the Microsoft Teams for personal use works across the web, mobile, and desktop apps
Same as Skype, the Microsoft Teams users can enable Together Mode. Together Mode is a feature that uses AI to segment your face and shoulders and place you together with other people in a virtual space. Microsoft said that it has also added new backgrounds such as family lounge, coffee shop, and summer resort.
“From online calls that will make you feel like you’re in the same place as your loved ones to group chats that will make coordinating plans with your loved ones a breeze, these personal features in Teams are designed to bring you closer to the people you care about so that you can call, chat, plan, and organize things big and small—together in one place,” wrote Liat Ben-Zur, corporate vice president at Microsoft, in a blog post about the personal features in Microsoft Teams.
Video chat and conferencing services like Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and Zoom have been exploded on a large scale due to the pandemic
