Microsoft has started testing a new feature, Teams chat, which will be integrated into Outlook soon.
The software giant says the feature will be available to all users in March 2023.
This feature gives attendees an easy Teams chat experience from Outlook in the context of a meeting to quickly send a message or view the chat, The Verge reports.
This feature allows attendees and organizers to use the chat integration to discuss a meeting in real time instead of sending emails back and forth.
The tech giant also plans to include Teams messages in search results in Outlook on the web.
This feature is scheduled for February, alongside AI-based file suggestions in Teams chats.
In addition, Teams profile cards will get an expanded view in February, including a person’s profile, contact details, LinkedIn information and more, according to the report.
In addition to the new Outlook and Teams integration, Microsoft Teams recently introduced scheduled sending, instant polls in meetings, improved search results, and unread messages toggles.
Earlier this month, Microsoft announced a new “Communities” feature in its “Teams” video conferencing software on Android and iOS to compete with Facebook groups.
With this feature, users can easily post messages to everyone in the group, organize events, and add them to the community calendar for all to see.
