Improved function

Microsoft is improving the way its AI-powered Copilot works in Microsoft Teams, with a new way to call the assistant during conference chats, summaries, and more. 

Copilot is already able to summarise Teams meetings, but over the next few months it will merge spoken notes and written chats into one view to make it easier to catch up on meetings you might have missed. Copilot in Teams has also improved the ability to compose messages in chats, allowing Teams users to rewrite messages in new ways.

“Copilot can adjust your messages, add a call-to-action phrase, or speak like a pirate,” Microsoft said in a blog post. “Soon, you’ll also be able to generate new messages based on context in your Teams chat.”

More flexible Copilot

According to Microsoft, the smart call review of traditional Teams calls directly to the phone “will officially launch through Teams Premium next quarter.” Smart Call Review will automatically take notes during the call, allowing you to summarise the call and view subsequent actions without having to awkwardly take notes. 

All of these AI improvements in Microsoft Teams are small on their own, but they add up to provide a more flexible Copilot in Teams. The Copilot integration in Teams is already one of the more impressive examples of Microsoft’s AI integration into Office apps, with the ability to quickly review meetings since summaries can even tell you exactly when they were mentioned in a meeting.

Coming soon

Later this year, automatic camera switching for the IntelliFrame feature in the Teams conference room will be available. It is designed to automatically switch camera views so that remote participants can get the best view, especially if a particular camera is obscured. In the April preview, any microphone in the Teams conference room will offer speaker recognition, which will allow you to register voice and face profiles to properly pick up whatever you say in a Teams meeting in a script.

Finally, Microsoft has some new carriers that support its Teams Phone Mobile feature, which lets you have a single number for Teams and your mobile device. “We’re excited to announce that several new partners, including AT&T, Odido, Virgin Media O2 and Vodafone UK, will begin offering Teams Phone Mobile later this year,” Microsoft said in a statement.
