Microsoft says it has been taking customer feedback seriously.

Microsoft wants to make Teams “virtual” interactions more human which is why it is bringing a slew of new features to its cloud-based video conferencing slash productivity platform. It’s a gradual evolution of Teams that Microsoft has been working on ever since the pandemic began and even though many of the new features that it is announcing now won’t be available until later this year, it’s remarkable how quickly it has switched gears and adapted to the whole situation.

Microsoft says it has been taking customer feedback (seriously) and working with experts across virtual reality, AI, and productivity research to make Teams the future of work, while also better taking on competition from Google Meet and Zoom. All of its new (and upcoming) features are designed to make meetings feel natural, more inclusive and engaging, as well as reduce fatigue.
