Microsoft Teams, the popular video conferencing application, has introduced a new feature. Responding to user complaints, the application will now include the ability to mute general channels. Many users have expressed discomfort with constant notifications from general channels, prompting Microsoft to address the issue. This new feature aims to allow users to concentrate better on their work without being bothered by unnecessary notifications.
Microsoft Teams reimagined
The new feature, which will come with the Microsoft 365 update, has been well-received by loyal Microsoft Teams users. This update, available on all platforms including Windows, Mac, and mobile, is expected to contribute to an increase in the application’s user base in the long run. While it remains a mystery why Microsoft didn’t introduce such a small innovation earlier, the company has announced its commitment to continue bringing improvements to enhance user experience.
The upcoming update will also streamline calendar notifications, reducing the frequency of notification sounds that users routinely encounter. Another improvement will be related to voice calls. During meetings, users who are called will be able to focus on their meeting without having to answer the call. Considering the potential consequences of even the slightest distraction during a tense online presentation, this innovation is deemed crucial.
