If you’re someone that keeps up with Microsoft products, then you might be familiar with Microsoft Ignite. The annual meeting produces a lot of interesting updates and announcements in the world of Microsoft. Let’s go over the most exciting Microsoft Ignite 2022 App Announcements.
The most recent conference was held in October of last year. You might have missed some of the highlights in the craziness of the recent holidays. So let’s go over some of them.
You’ll see that Microsoft Teams received a lot of attention at the event. Teams is currently Microsofts “app at the center of Microsoft 365.” We can understand why the business keeps improving its online workspace. Today, Teams has more than 280 million users. Given that Microsoft has released over 450 new Teams features, this is hardly surprising.
Below, we’ll go over various Teams features and other Ignite-related Microsoft App announcements. You may use these to inspire your next upgrade to your digital workflow.
Microsoft has a new Teams Premium option that gives the platform a brand-new AI component. There are various AI-powered features in this service. They provide the impression that you have a personal meeting assistant.
Automatically creating chapters from a Teams meeting is one of the best parts. Additionally, the app creates customized highlights for you. You won’t need to view the meeting again later thanks to this.
Cisco is Now a Certified Devices Partner for Teams Rooms
Fans of Cisco meeting tools will be happy to learn that there are now more options available. Cisco has been added as a Teams Room Certified Devices partner, according to Microsoft. Now, Teams meetings can be started using any approved Cisco meeting device.
Microsoft Places is one of the programs for virtual workspaces that supports the new hybrid movement. A team management tool that is integrated within the Microsoft 365 environment is this one.
The office is still open, but how long will that last? During the pandemic, a large portion of the world had to operate virtually. Many businesses and employees discovered they prefer it that way. Seventy-four percent of US businesses currently use a mixed work style or want to do so.
Another way Microsoft is driving the hybrid office revolution is through Microsoft Places.
Loop App Private Preview
Microsoft also made an amazing app announcement about its Loop app. It said Loop had gone into private preview. This provides some businesses an opportunity to investigate it.
The collaborative workplace tool Loop supports team ideation in a virtual environment. To keep current, all data retrieved from Microsoft 365 apps syncs automatically.
