Skype for Business may be on its way to end service, but Microsoft is using Skype technology to combine Microsoft’s broadcast inger’s solution, Skype TX, with network device interface (NDI) support to deliver broadcast events. We’re trying to improve Teams.
According to Microsoft, NDI for Microsoft Teams will convert each participant’s video into a video source available in Open Broadcaster Software, Wirecast, XSplit and StreamLabs to deliver full-fledged broadcasts.
Microsoft will soon release Templates in Teams, which allows you to choose from multiple customizable templates when you create a new team.
Templates in Teams will be released within months, but IT administrators can also create custom templates to fit the configuration of teams commonly used in a variety of industries, including healthcare, banking, and event management.
Users can change the team name, description, and channel name from the 12 templates microsoft has. Microsoft Teams administrators can also create their own templates or modify existing templates to incorporate related line-of-business apps into templates.
The Microsoft Power Platform and the Power Apps tool, which allows you to create business applications without programming, have also become an integral part of complementing the capabilities of Microsoft Teams. Users will soon be able to add apps they’ve created in Power Apps to Microsoft Teams with one click. Thanks to remote work, Microsoft Teams has more opportunities to use Power Apps.
It’s even easier to create and manage chatbots in Microsoft Teams. Power Virtual Agents also supports single sign-on sso- that can be authenticated on the first use of Microsoft Teams.
There are also new Power Automate business process templates available in Microsoft Teams, as well as the ability to share “Power BI” graphs and reports with Microsoft Teams using the Share to Teams button. You can share these reports from the Power BI portal by entering the name of the team to share the information with.
For collaboration, we’ll also enhance the Fluid Framework with “fluid components” created in Outlook and Office, such as tables, graphs, and task lists. The data in these components is updated when hosted in an Office app and is more real-time than static documents.
In the coming months, the feature will be available for customers using microsoft 365 under enterprise licenses from the “Targeted Release” first.
