Two Microsoft Teams Rooms new features are reportedly coming in the next months. And, as we’ve spotted from Microsoft 365 Roadmap site, these things could be game changers and would make it easier for IT administrators to manage their deployments and for users to have better meetings.
The first feature is the Insights Report (Feature ID: 122571), which is available in the Microsoft Teams Rooms Pro Management portal. The report summarizes issues, remediation steps taken, and time savings, and proactively alerts IT to issues before they become a problem for users. Previously available only via a managed service, now all Teams Rooms Pro customers can take advantage of this report.
The Insights Report provides a wealth of information that can help IT administrators to better manage their Microsoft Teams Rooms deployments. The report includes information on the number of rooms in the deployment, the number of meetings that have been held, the number of issues that have occurred, the time it takes to resolve issues, and the cost savings that have been realized.
The second feature is IntelliFrame (Feature ID: 122571), which enables multi-stream video, face recognition of in-room participants, active speaker recognition, attributed voice-based transcription, and panoramic video on front-of-room (180-degree view) and center-of-room (360-degree view) cameras, taking Teams Rooms on Windows cameras to the next level of intelligence. IntelliFrame is available only with the Microsoft Teams Rooms Pro license.
The Insights Report will be available in August 2023, and IntelliFrame will be available in this very month (July 2023).
Speaking of Teams, some of the 365 Insiders have also begun previewing the newer generation of the app. Dubbed “Teams 2.0,” Microsoft boasts that the new app consumes less power and loads faster.
