Join Teams work meetings from Microsoft Teams (free) and vice versa

Microsoft Teams (Free) users can currently join Teams for work (or school) meetings only as guests, which requires them to use a browser and results in a sub-optimal experience. The new feature rolling out will allow these users to join Teams for work (or school) meetings in one click, without being redirected to the browser or asked to fill in their name/surname. They will also be able to continue collaborating with the meeting organizer and other participants via meeting chat after the meeting.  The feature will work in the opposite way as well, so Teams for work (or school) will just as easily be able to join meetings hosted by a Teams Free user with one click.

Microsoft Copilot is all around...


As the debut of Microsoft 365 Copilot approaches, there are a lot of Copilot features set to be introduced across the Microsoft 365 ecosystem. Here are a few noteworthy additions:

Microsoft has unveiled a series of innovative features in the upcoming releases of Windows 11, some of them are already released, and some are currently available in preview builds. The Windows 11 Copilot, conveniently located in the taskbar, eliminates the need to open your Edge browser. It is seamlessly integrated with Bing Enterprise Chat (BEC) and ChatGPT, making it really easy to get started on your creative journey.

Included in Windows 11 is the new co-creator feature in Paint. This feature, also in preview, is integrated with DALL-E and provides a swift and straightforward method for creating illustrations and images. If you possess a knack for crafting descriptions, you can generate quite impressive imagery.

Another AI-powered feature is image creation directly from BEC. This feature, also integrated with DALL-E, offers users an incredibly quick and easy way to create illustrations and images to complement their texts or presentations.

For those who frequently use mobile devices, you may have noticed the release of BEC into the Bing app on mobile devices. One particularly appealing aspect of this new integration is the ability to simply click on the app widget and begin asking questions.

And this is just the beginning. I can't wait to see all the new features and use cases when Microsoft 365 Copilot is released next month.

PS: Some of the features are only available in certain regions at the moment. They will roll out globally in a gradual manner. You can read all about the new releases in this blogpost.
