More Teams Controls For Developers

At Build 2021, Microsoft unveiled new previews of ways to develop related to the Teams collaboration app. Select developers can now access the “main stage” in a Teams meeting through a configuration in the app manifest. Integrations to allow for real-time, multi-user collaboration on whiteboard, design, project boards and other activities. Also in preview are Microsoft Teams Toolkit for Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code features to reduce the amount of code needed for Teams application development. Developers can also explore integrations with Azure Functions and Microsoft Graph.

A private preview is now available for fluid components in Microsoft Teams chat. These fluid components allow users to message a table, action item or list that can be co-authored and edited by everyone in line.
