Although you can’t download your image yet like Zoom, Microsoft promises to release it later, but you can choose from the many backgrounds that the platform provides, as Microsoft has made clear that the feature depends on the background blur that uses AI to blur the environment behind you.
In addition, the latest version of Teams includes a “hand raise” icon, which you can press to inform participants, if you have something to say during the meeting.
Finally, it offers to apply the “end meeting” option that gives organizers the ability to end a call with the push of a button, a feature that teachers demand so that they can quickly end calls when the online class turns into chaos.
It is worth noting that Microsoft announced yesterday that its users held 2.7 billion minutes of meeting in one day on March 31 – an increase of 200% from 900 million on March 16.
“With students and teachers turning to Teams for distance learning, there are 183,000 people in 175 countries using Teams for Education, where the world works remotely, so it’s not surprising that people are playing the video in Microsoft,” said Jared Spataro, vice president of Microsoft 365. Teams meet twice more than before, and many of us have started to work from home completely. ”
