Microsoft Teams 2022 Updates – Tech Tip For June 15, 2022

This month we are recapping the most important tech tips that we have shared you in 2022 so far.

In February, we covered the new features rolling out in Microsoft Teams. Features include:

  • Ways to improve meeting experiences including music mode and video mirroring.
  • A new wave of Teams compatible devices such HD cameras, headphones, portable features, and even Teams features in the Meta Portal.
  • Walkie-talkie (aka push-to-talk) features that allow frontline workers to use Teams on their mobile devices in the same way that they would use a walkie-talkie.

You can check out all of our Teams tech tips here: February 2022 – TechWise Group | A Fresh Take On Tech.
