1. Higher performance with reduced use of resources

Microsoft Teams has taken a leap forward – the application now runs twice as fast while using half the memory. This means users can be more productive – but without any detrimental effect on the performance of their computers. This is a particular advantage for organizations with large teams.

2. Flexible log-in to multiple accounts

Another new feature is the option to log into multiple accounts and organizations. This makes it easier for users to switch between different working environments without needing to log out of one and into another each time.

3. Meet App

The new Meet App within Microsoft Teams is revolutionizing the organization of meetings. Boasting a user-friendly interface, it offers a streamlined meeting experience. Users can plan a meeting, take part in one or watch a recorded meeting – all with a simple click of their mouse. This frees up valuable time for more important tasks.

Once you have downloaded the new Teams app, incorporating the innovative Meet App into your everyday work couldn’t be easier.
