May developments

In a new update from Microsoft Teams platform, a series of new features has been announced. One of them is the option of adjusting the brightness and soft focus of the video filter. This might improve the video quality when the lighting is poor. Both filters are now available before, as well as during meetings (To enable these filters: go to device settings).

Another feature is the View Together Mode for Everyone. This mode creates a virtual common space in which participants feel as if they are sitting in a similar room. Presently, the meeting coordinator and moderators can begin the Together Mode for all participants of the meeting (To enable this component, check the Select Together Mode for Everyone choice after you pick a scene).

All gathering members can then consolidate this vivid experience. This option is accessible for Teams desktop clients only.
