Together Mode — Microsoft’s Shot at Revamping Your Meetings

Together Mode

The new feature is coming out after several months of deliberations. It’s no news that a lot of businesses and workplaces took a hit due to the COVID-19, as crowded gatherings are a strict no-no right now.

“Thanks to Microsoft, we can create the same workspace vibes even while sitting on our couch in our pajamas!”

What is the virtual space going to be like?

Rumors say that the virtual space created by Together Mode could be a meeting room type environment, a coffee shop, or some other space where you would likely to have a meeting.

Dynamic View

Microsoft is also bringing in the Dynamic view, which has the capability to automatically adjust what people view during presentations. It’s specifically designed to allow people to dynamically share content side by side with participants.

Steps to enable Together Mode:

  1. Start a video call.
  2. Tap on ‘More Options’.
  3. Click on ‘Together Mode.’
  4. Select a background of your choice.
  5. Click on ‘Apply’.

Steps to change the video call’s background on Microsoft Teams:

  1. Start a video call and wait until other people join it.
  2. Click on ‘More Actions’ located on the toolbar.
  3. Choose the background you like from the wide array of options.
  4. You can also click ‘Preview’ to see how it looks like.
  5. Select ‘Apply and turn on video.’

Everything and anything, soon to be Cortana-centric

Microsoft’s new features are going to be Cortana-centric. She will soon arrive in the Teams app along with Together Mode, in Android and iOS after Microsoft removed the independent app.

“Microsoft is also planning to launch its new devices and laptops that voice can assess control over, especially its displays and functionalities, thanks to Cortana”

All in all seems like Microsoft really skyrocketed its market by turning the disadvantages that people are facing to its advantage!
