You likely have two or more Microsoft Teams account when you
work with multiple companies or if you want to do something
that your Microsoft Teams administrator prevents.
Whatever the reason may be, if you end up with two (or more)
Microsoft Teams accounts, the desktop app is getting a new
feature that will help you add additional account and manage
them without logging out.
Microsoft appears to be testing a new section in the Teams
Settings that will allow you to link/add additional accounts.
Once you’ve linked your accounts to the desktop app, you will
be able to change the profile picture and switch between the
accounts or organizations directly through the Settings.
The feature will begin rolling out to users later this year or
next year, but testers should get early access soon.
In addition, Microsoft is testing another feature that will
allow you to create custom pages for the users. For example,
you can soon create a badge using the title, colours, images
and even language. This will help you customize your classroom
experience or express company culture.
Another feature that was announced recently is support for
improved invite links. Users added to a meeting via a meeting
link will finally have access to the chats, files, notes, etc
after the meeting is over.
Currently, invited users are unable to access the meeting
contents after the meeting ends.
To compete with Zoom and Google Meet, Microsoft has been
working on adding essential features to the desktop and mobile
apps. For example, Microsoft also plans to update the existing
pre-join experience in Teams with new options to change
your audio and camera device.
Similarly, Microsoft is also going to increase the participant
limit in chats to 1,000. These options are scheduled to roll
out in November 2020, according to a roadmap update.
