New Microsoft Teams Interface

New Microsoft Teams Interface

Microsoft is rolling out the new Teams interface for all users. The new version of Teams is a significant rewrite of the application for Microsoft and hopes to address some common concerns. For example, Teams will load 50% faster and use far less memory on your device than the legacy version of Teams. Joining Teams meetings will also happen more quickly with the new Teams interface.

In addition, Teams will adopt the same visual settings as Windows 11 by default. You have the ability to change setting by clicking on the three ellipses by your name in the upper right, followed by “settings”. There are many settings to customize your look and feel of Teams. We recommend you look at these settings to make the application work best for your preferences.

Now, let’s talk about functionality. Here are a few bullet points of some of the more useful updates:

• Users have the ability to pop conversations out into a new window. That will allow those conversations to be moved to a more convenient monitor for multi-monitor setups.
• Copilot is in Teams chat. (with license) This allows users to access Copilot directly from inside Teams to do things like summarize meetings.
• The list of Teams certified devices has grown. Microsoft continues to approve more devices over time for Teams usage.
• Teams now supports Android Auto, allowing users to connect to their cars infotainment system for meetings and call for business on the go.

For a period of time, Microsoft will be allowing users to choose to go back to the old Teams interface, but please note that this is temporary. At some point in 2024 yet to be determined, Microsoft will remove that ability and the new Teams interface will be the only option.
