Microsoft EDU teams have been hard at work applying educator feedback to bring new features and functionality to the products you use most. With more and more educational institutions around the world relying on Teams for remote learning, our goal is to advance and improve our EDU products as quickly as we can. This week is an important one as there are several new updates being rolled out as a result of your continued feedback. Let’s get into it! Click the links below to learn more about each feature.
1) 3X3 View
A new 3×3 view of you audience allows you to see nine participants in a teams call at a time. This is an increase from four participants previously available.
2) Raise Hand
Ability to raise a virtual hand to let people know you want to contribute without interrupting the conversation.
You can now add up to 10,000 members to a team. This is an increase from 5,000 participants previously allowed within a single team.
You can now manage custom backgrounds for your organization using PowerShell
We hope you find these new features helpful as you use Microsoft Teams. The best part is, there’s a whole lot more where this came from! Stay tuned in the coming weeks as we will be announcing even more new features that you won’t want to miss.
