All the Latest on Microsoft Teams from Lori Wright

This is an interview with Lori Wright, GM for Microsoft Office 365, discussing the latest new features for Microsoft Teams

UC Today attended Enterprise Connect 2019, potentially the biggest unified communications and collaboration event on the planet, to bring you interviews with all the industry’s biggest names.

Lori Wright, GM for Microsoft Office 365, joins Patrick for this video interview. Lori explains that during this week Microsoft Teams has reached its second anniversary and the growth of the platform has been quite extraordinary. Available in 44 languages and 181 different markets, Microsoft Teams is now used by over 500,000 organisations globally.

Patrick and Lori then move on to discuss the rapid development of new features that has become synonymous with the platform. The huge investment leveraged by Microsoft in Teams means that the deployment of new features and functions never slows. Lori tells Patrick that they have announced 8 new features for Microsoft Teams at the Enterprise Connect 2019 event.

The 8 new features include a Whiteboard meeting optimisation tool, live captioning and customisable backgrounds for video. Lori’s favourite new feature is the Whiteboard function which allows users to add content from a physical whiteboard onto the Whiteboard canvas, utilise that content within a remote meeting, without having to recreate it from scratch.

“…more than 100 new features” in a 6 month period last year due to the platform’s scalability – impressive!
