To advance our vision for Intelligent Communications, we are announcing new Teams features coming later this year, including:
Inline message translation:
Cortana voice interactions for Teams-enabled devices:
Background blur on video:
Proximity detection for Teams Meetings:
Mobile sharing in meetings:
Today, we are also announcing new enterprise-grade calling features in Teams, including consultative transfer and call delegation and federation. In addition, we’re introducing Direct Routing, which will enable customers to use their existing telephony infrastructure with Teams for calling. When you combine a Microsoft Calling Plan or Direct Routing with our Phone System for Office 365, Teams becomes a full voice service. These new capabilities are expected to be available in the second quarter of 2018.
