Microsoft Teams September 2023 Updates

Microsoft Teams has introduced several new capabilities in September 2023, spanning various aspects of the platform. These updates include features for webinars, chat and collaboration, Teams rooms and devices, frontline workers, vertical solutions, IT admins, and security, as well as improvements related to various apps.

Webinar Enhancements

Webinar organizers now have improved functionality with the ability to publish on-demand recordings and send links via email. Furthermore, administrators can configure users to share a phone and calling plan for PSTN calls, and analog devices can seamlessly integrate with Teams.

Chat and Collaboration Enhancements

In the realm of chat and collaboration, users can create up to 1,000 channels per team and send video messages with various options such as blurring backgrounds, screen recording, and video removal. Additionally, guests can collaborate more effectively across Microsoft clouds, and users can join meetings in another cloud without switching tenants.

Webinar Updates

The most notable update in webinars is the enhanced experience for on-demand recordings. Organizers can now publish recordings and share them via email directly from within Teams. Additionally, Teams Phone administrators can configure groups of users to share phones and calling plans, and analog devices from various manufacturers can integrate with Teams.

Chat and Collaboration Improvements

In the chat and collaboration category, Teams now allows the creation of up to 1,000 channels per team and offers expanded video messaging options. Cross-cloud collaboration is also improved, making it easier for guests to collaborate across Microsoft clouds. Users can now join meetings in another Microsoft cloud without switching their tenant.

Teams Rooms and Devices

Several devices are now Teams-certified, including touch consoles, cameras, and wireless solutions for Teams Rooms. This section highlights the certified devices.

Frontline Workers and Vertical Solutions

Customers in the frontline workers and vertical solutions category can now benefit from richer text formatting options in Planner tasks within Teams. Additionally, SOTI and VMware Workspace ONE endpoint management solutions for Android now support shared device mode. DOD customers can take advantage of new features in the Teams Admin Center, including support for the Poly CCX 500 as the first Teams phone hardware.
