Microsoft has confirmed that two new features are now rolling
out to Microsoft Teams on Windows 10, macOS, Android, iOS and
web. These enhancements span collaboration and meeting features
of Microsoft Teams across all platforms.
According to the official changelog, Microsoft says users can
now easily transfer ongoing meetings between mobile, desktop,
and web. In other words, if you’re in a meeting using your

device without any major disruption.

device as a companion to their meeting.
The update appears to be rolling out to everyone and you should

even better. The company said that users will receive Teams
notes improvements later this month.
After implementing these changes, Microsoft will finally begin
pushing the highly-anticipated
Teams Breakout rooms feature next month.
It’s also worth noting that Microsoft is internally testing
performance-related enhancements for Teams desktop client. In
fact, it’s believed that a future update will make Windows app
snappier and less-resources intensive, but there’s no specific
announcement about Teams rebuild.
