Microsoft Teams to have Cortana integration, other features
San Francisco: With Microsoft Teams completing one year this week, the company is set to unveil new features, including Cortana integration and inline message translation for Teams -- the company's answer to business communication service rival Slack.
The added integration with Cortana's digital voice assistance could give Microsoft an edge in its battle with Slack as the importance of voice-based computing in the workplace and within business productivity applications grows.
Other features that would be rolled out throughout the year include Cloud recording, background blur on video, proximity detection for Teams Meetings and mobile sharing in meetings.
Inline message translation would allow Microsoft Teams participants to automatically translate messages in channels and chat messages.
