What New Features Did Microsoft Just Add to Teams to Improve Video Calls?
Teams Can Now Do WebinarsThe ability to do webinars is a big value-add for Teams. It now is one of the few platforms out there designed for both everyday online meetings and for conducting webinars. Users can designate a meeting as a webinar, which gives them the ability to customize a webinar registration page. Add a header image and any questions that you want to ask people as they’re registering.
All Teams images are from Microsoft.The webinar addition also includes attendee reporting so you can see who signed up and who attended. Once people register for the webinar, they automatically receive a confirmation email with the meeting link.
Choose Three Professional Presentation ModesPresenting over video conferencing typically looks less professional than presenting in person. You often don’t have much control over how your video feed looks, and people can just hear you instead of seeing you when you’re sharing a presentation. You can get a little closer to an offline experience with Teams’ new Presenter Mode feature. It gives you three professional-looking views to show your audience for a more impactful presentation.
Standout Mode: Your video feed is laid in front of your full-screen presentation.
Side-by-Side Mode: Your video feed and presentation share the screen next to each other.
Reporter Mode: Your video feed is larger, with the presentation over your shoulder.
