This new upgrade for Microsoft Teams will now allow users of Microsoft Outlook to benefit from a more collaborative experience. To enable a meeting-style setting within the email client, the video conferencing service is working on a feature that it claims would bring Teams conversation into Outlook. Users won’t need to jump between the applications because these new ‘Outlook meetings’ will enable participants to send a fast message or evaluate a chat without first opening Microsoft Teams.
This will give users a simple Teams chat experience from Outlook in the context of a meeting. It appears to be an extension of the Teams features that are currently built into Outlook. When both apps are installed on a device, the Teams add-in for Outlook is automatically enabled for users, offering them the ability to rapidly message their contacts.
Ease Of Use
This new feature that would enable users to run applications created for Microsoft Teams will be present inside Outlook. Users won’t have to constantly move between Teams and Outlook to remain on top of their work, which should result in a more seamless online collaboration experience. Without leaving the email platform, users will be able to download and utilize these upgraded Teams apps (with personal tabs and/or search-based message extensions).
Users of Microsoft Teams will soon be able to sync their calendars with Outlook, which syncs across the full Office 365 suite and helps users manage their time and identify availability for online meetings, with the release of yet another new app.
This will soon be available for the Outlook users around the world. It will be rolled out as a regular software update and you can schedule it to happen automatically.
