Microsoft has recently presented the latest updates and features for Microsoft 365 in a blog post. The post mainly presents new features in Teams Premium and Viva that will be very interesting for businesses in the future.
In this blog post, we give you our take on the new features and capabilities that will be available to you with Microsoft365 in the coming time.
AI in Microsoft Teams Premium
“We’re bringing new AI-powered capabilities to Microsoft Teams Premium to make meetings more intelligent, personalized, and protected.”Colette Stallbaumer, General Manager Microsoft 365 in the current Microsoft365 blog
The new features in Microsoft Teams Premium are very powerful. By integrating AI into the core communication tool of the Microsoft365 work environment, Microsoft has taken a big step toward the future. The AI in question is OpenAI’s technology, GPT 3.5.
Below, we’ll introduce you to the possibilities that artificial intelligence offers to Teams Premium users!
Intelligent summaries after the meeting
“With intelligent recap, Teams Premium is integrating AI across your meetings experience, helping you get the information most important to you from every meeting and increasing productivity in new ways.”Colette Stallbaumer, General Manager Microsoft 365 in the current Microsoft365 blog
For any company that holds a lot of Teams meetings, intelligent summaries are a huge boon. Especially when important decisions are being made about teams. AI helps avoid misunderstandings, make work even more effective, and speed up the decision-making process.
AI sets smart timelines for recorded meetings
On the Microsoft Teams summary page, you can see the “Weekly Teams Review” meeting summary, including the meeting recording with different chapters, the speakers with individual speaker timeline markers, and “AI Notes” with suggested notes and tasks.
If meetings are recorded, AI automatically creates you relevant timelines where key points were discussed. Artificial intelligence allows you to find the most relevant time slots in no time and watch or listen to them again.
We are very excited about this feature because we believe it will deliver great value. For us as Microsoft experts and for all Microsoft365 users who are often on the go in Teams, this will be a great celebration!
Personalize meetings in Microsoft Teams for your business
“And now with branded meetings, you can add things like your company’s color scheme and logo to all your digital meetings.”Colette Stallbaumer, General Manager Microsoft 365 in the current Microsoft365 blog
Being able to add your company’s color scheme and logo to digital meetings is a great opportunity to reinforce company branding and increase the professionalism of online meetings. By integrating their branding into all digital meetings, companies create a consistent brand identity and recognition that carries over to other attendees during virtual meetings.
In today’s environment, brand identity and recognition is especially important as companies struggle to get their brand identity out there digitally due to the shift to remote working!
In this regard, brand presences help build trust in the company and even help attract new customers.
Create a digital company culture with Microsoft Viva Engage
“New AI-driven capabilities in Microsoft Viva Engage connect leaders with employees, helping to close the productivity paranoia gap and scale culture across a digitally connected, distributed workforce.”Colette Stallbaumer, General Manager Microsoft 365 in the current Microsoft365 blog
Microsoft Viva Engage makes it easier for employees to interact with their colleagues and company leadership. It encourages collaboration and creates an open communication culture.
The platform also provides personalized recommendations to promote employee learning and development. Important information and resources can be delivered faster and more efficiently, increasing employee productivity and, consequently, business success.
Above all, the platform offers powerful tools to promote a strong and positive corporate culture. In times of hybrid working, it is becoming increasingly difficult to create cohesion and a “WE” feeling. That’s why it’s all the more important to connect digitally, share ideas and learn what’s on people’s minds within the company. This enables the company to respond much better to the needs of its employees and thus also increase employee satisfaction and productivity.
“We’re bringing AI-powered capabilities to Microsoft 365 so that all employees can stay connected and productive and focus on the most important tasks, while reducing costs and complexity for IT professionals.”Colette Stallbaumer, General Manager Microsoft 365 in the current Microsoft365 blog
The objective of Microsoft365 is thus clearly stated. We are on a path through the potentials of AI that offers us completely new possibilities. Should you want to continue to use these possibilities in your daily work, Microsoft365 is the perfect working environment for you.
