Teams: Together Mode
Microsoft is announcing some new features for Teams this week including new scenes for Together Mode. Originally announced in July, Together Mode places participants in a video meeting into a shared virtual background in Teams. New backgrounds that will be available later this year will include a coffee shop and a conference room, Microsoft said.
The company is also improving the visual rendering of participants in their virtual seats, by automatically scaling and centering participants to give them a more realistic appearance in Together Mode.
