Stay Connected through Microsoft Teams

Posted on November 02, 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses are taking all the necessary precautions to make sure their employees stay safe and healthy. As a result, the majority of our office workers are working from home. As more employees are required to work from home, the need for technology to keep everybody connected is crucial. One of the ways businesses are staying connected is by Microsoft Teams, a chat-based workspace that brings workers together to collaborate and communicate. Microsoft Teams understands the importance of staying connected. Therefore, they have come out with new features during the month of April that are available for Teams users. 

Do you know what new features are available in Microsoft Teams in April?

If you are one of the 44 Million Microsoft Teams users you will be very interested in knowing what is new in April. Teams now has the availability to customize your background from a list of preselected images. The good news is you don’t need to upgrade to take advantage of it. When you are in a Teams meeting click on the three dots between your chat and screen share and select “show background effects”  and a selection of backgrounds will pop up. Click on the background that fits your mood and meeting style and hit apply. Your background will be in place until the end of your meeting.
