🍾 LAUNCHED

  • Microsoft Teams: Microsoft Graph API for Teams Export (Preview) – Enterprise Information Archiving (EIA) for Microsoft Teams is a key scenario for our customer as it allows them to solve for retention, indexing, e-discovery, classification, and regulatory requirements. Roadmap ID: 68731
  • Microsoft Teams: Cortana support expansion to additional languages in Microsoft Teams Rooms – Cortana will support additional languages on Teams devices that are set to different locale languages.

  • Microsoft Teams: Admin notifications for Custom app submissions – When a developer submits a custom app for IT admin approval, admins will receive a notification in a dedicated Teams channel, so they can review and take next steps to publish the app. Roadmap ID:82512

🚂 ROLLING OUT

  • Microsoft Teams: Support Application screen sharing for Teams on VDI for Citrix – Citrix users will be able to share application during Teams meeting once the feature is available. This will help user to share an application instead of sharing a complete desktop screen. Roadmap ID: 83116
  • Microsoft Teams: Changes to Microsoft Teams apps’ native permissions in the browser – In order to better secure Microsoft Teams third-party applications that request native device permissions – such as camera, microphone or location access – we will be requiring users to manually opt-in for these permissions per app in the Microsoft Teams web browser experience. We are already doing this on the Teams desktop and mobile clients.  Roadmap ID: 83656
  • Microsoft Teams: Shared templates between Teams and SharePoint – Team templates and SharePoint templates are now shared for specific use cases. Roadmap ID: 84724
  • Microsoft Teams: Mirror my video – Mirror my video feature provides the user the option to un-mirror their video and thereby have the same view as the other users(s) in the meeting. By un-mirroring their video, the user will see the text correctly. No more flipped text in backgrounds or while holding a small whiteboard while teaching primary school kids. This feature is helpful in gallery, large gallery, ppt-content only sharing, and ppt-live scenarios. Roadmap ID: 89015
