Stream Preview and Playback
Within Teams Chats and Channels, users now have the ability to instantly preview and play Microsoft Stream videos. This eliminates the need to leave Teams to access Stream through a browser.
Whenever someone shares a Stream video with you that has been saved in SharePoint or OneDrive, such as a team meeting recording, you can conveniently watch it right from the Teams chat. This update ensures seamless viewing while making it easier to stay engaged and in the context of the conversation.
Now available in public preview, meeting attendees can co-create and collaborate as they take notes. Everyone can make real-time changes to the meeting agenda, notes, follow-up tasks and more, helping people stay on task during virtual meetings.
These capabilities are seamlessly integrated across Teams, Loop, Planner, To Do and OneDrive. Collaborative notes are a Loop component, which means they automatically sync and can be shared and replicated in group chats, emails and various other files. When you’re assigned a task during a meeting, you’ll receive an email notification and the task will be added to Planner and To Do to keep you organised.
You can access collaborative notes through the ‘Details’ tab in the calendar invite, the ‘Notes’ button during the meeting and under the ‘Recap’ tab when it has ended.
New keyboard shortcut for search
Searching through multiple posts and conversations across Teams to find a specific piece of information wastes valuable time, increases distractions and ultimately reduces productivity.
However, there is a helpful new keyboard shortcut that speeds up content retrieval. Use CTRL + F (or Command + F for Mac) to pull up the search window ‘Find in chat’ or ‘Find in channel’. Within the window, simply type your keyword and results that are relevant to the chosen location will be shown on the right-hand side of your screen.
Microsoft have announced that the new search experience will become available later in the year.
