The new Microsoft Teams features

A new Microsoft Teams meeting pre-join experience

Microsoft are making changes to the meetings by adding a pre-join experience. For you this means you can check your audio, video and select your background filters before you enter a Teams Meeting.

The most important change to note here is that after this update you will be able to select your background filter before you enter your meeting.

This feature is expected to be rolled out from mid-September to the end of September.

Also coming this September is the ability to streamline sharing files from Microsoft Teams. You will soon be able to create a shareable link for any file stored in Teams and set the appropriate permissions with their new “file sharing experience”.
