Microsoft is experimenting with two new features to give
workers and educators a productivity boost.
According to the roadmap, Microsoft Teams is getting support
for a new feature called ‘End-of-meeting notifications’. This
new feature will send you a notification when the meeting is
scheduled to end in 5 minutes. The meeting won’t end
automatically, but it will remind you that it is an excellent
time to wrap up the discussion.
‘End-of-meeting notifications’ feature could be a useful
addition for both educational institutes and businesses.
It will be triggered for both private and channel meetings, but

The feature has been designed to make you more productive.
End-of-meeting notifications support is currently rolling out
to Microsoft Teams users and it will show up in your
organization later this week.
Last year, Microsoft improved Outlook integration in Teams for
Windows 10 and the integration is now getting better.
This will allow users to share an email or a conversation from
Outlook to Teams and you’ll be able to access the option
directly in the Simplified Ribbon menu. The feature could be
particularly useful for business users when they want to share
an email from Outlook to a user in Microsoft Teams.
The roadmap revealed that the feature is currently in
development and the update will begin rolling out to desktop
users in March next year.
In addition to the Outlook and notifications integration,
Microsoft has also announced other improvements for Teams
desktop client. For example, Teams on macOS is expected to
receive support for Touch Bar. Likewise, new together mode
scenes, breakout rooms,
meeting reactions, and other changes are scheduled to
launch this month.
