Windows 11: Taskbar Features – Tech Tip for August 24, 2021

​​To wrap up our August theme of Windows 11’s new and enhanced features, this week we’re looking at the Windows 11 taskbar. Microsoft has added new taskbar features designed to make it easier to connect and communicate with others.

Chat from Microsoft Teams

The integration of Microsoft Teams in the Windows 11 taskbar allows users to chat or text their personal contacts (or connect with voice or video) regardless of what platform (Windows, Android, iOS) or device the contact is using. If the contact hasn’t downloaded the Teams app, the user can still connect with them via two-way SMS.
