Copilot for PowerBI

Copilot for PowerBI is now coming out in preview, and the feature will be enabled for all tenants. The feature can enhance data interaction and report creation using generative AI. If the organization is not ready for this roll-out, there are ways to restrict this feature based on security groups. There are controls to include or exclude groups.  One concern organizations have is the possibility of data being processed in a datacenter in a different region than their tenant. This can also be controlled by not allowing the usage of datacenters outside your region. Sign into the admin portal for PowerBI and check the settings associated with Copilot

A couple of new features coming to Microsoft Teams

As Viva gains popularity and organizations are seeing the benefits of Viva, Viva topic is one of those apps Admins had to make available through a manual process in the tenant. That is no longer the case, as Viva topics in Teams now is a first class citizen for all: 

Suggested replies has been around for a while, and now Teams will add the feature of suggesting files to share when replying in 1:1 chats. According to the official roadmap, this feature is in development, but according to the Message Center the roll out should begin early July. This is a feature the end-user can opt out of by turning off the "suggested reply" feature all together

Sharing from apps is getting easier for the end-user, as the new "Sharing experience" is rolling out. Taken from the Message Center: "Users will be able to share apps directly from the app details dialog": 

Last but not least: "Mark all as read" is rolling out. Not all notifications are important, and in some large organizations there can be a myriad of teams and channels users follow but not necessarily want to read every day. This new feature will for sure make it easier to "start from scratch" and stay on top of the "right" notifications.

None of these new features require any admin actions.
