Microsoft wants Windows 11 to live up to the times, in which hybrid work takes on more and more prominence. In this sense, those of Redmond announced that one of the axes of its new operating system will be the integration with Teams, however, this was not yet available in the first Insider Preview released at the end of June. Now, the company has provided a sneak peek at how its unified productivity platform will work.
Microsoft’s Brandon LeBlanc said Teams has been redesigned to offer optimized performance and look in line with the Windows 11 design language. The application will be released at floating window format on the taskbar and it will allow to execute a wide variety of actions directly from there. However, it is yet to be seen fully working in the developer versions. The executive indicated that the deployment will be carried out in stages.
In the immediate term, some Insiders will begin to experience the integration of Teams in Windows 11. They may log in to the app, add contacts and connect through chats group and individual. Later, “in the coming weeks,” Microsoft will enable audio, video, meetings, screen sharing, and other related features. LeBlanc indicates that once the features arrive, users will need to restart their operating system for them to be activated.
The new Microsoft Teams in Windows 11
LeBlanc said Teams was redesigned but did not provide details. However, since Windows Latest have addressed the depth of these changes. The new app would run under Edge WebView2, that is, it would be based on the web app. In order to achieve the most native experience possible in Windows 11, Microsoft would have eliminated the address bar and the main menu.
From the aforementioned site they ensure that the integrated application consumes less resources. As a result, it starts up faster and fixes the loading screen jam issue. In addition, the windows could be resized more freely and the interface scales automatically. In the future Microsoft is expected to enable more functions, advanced controls and support for additional features such as the ability to use multiple accounts and shared functions with Microsoft Office.
