La roadmap di Microsoft Teams avanza

Dopo circa un anno dall’annuncio di Microsoft Teams, e del suo arricchimento progressivo descritto attraverso la roadmap pubblica, è stato annunciato che l’obiettivo di parity features per call e meeting è stato raggiunto.

In tanti, come anche il sottoscritto, ci troviamo quindi da mesi ad utilizzare in combinata Skype for Business e Teams, sfruttando entrambi i tool installati sul dispositivo.

Queste le funzionalità rilasciate di recente, e che dovrebbero aver portato ad una equivalenza di funzionalità per chiamate e riunioni online:

  • Messaging: Teams now offers unified presencefederated chat, and contacts, as well as in-line translation capabilities that allow team members to converse in their native language.
  • Meetings: Cloud-based meeting recording, support for larger meetings of up to 250 participants; federated meetings, which provides the ability to host meetings across multiple organizations; meeting lobby so you can qualify dial-in callers before they join your meeting; and dial-in fallback support to ensure people can join a meeting even in the event of network issues.
  • Calling: Boss and delegate support, call queues, auto-attendant, consultative transfer, do-not-disturb breakthrough, the ability to forward a call to a group, and out of office support. In addition, Direct Routing enables you to bring your own telephone service to Teams, which along with Calling Plans provides you additional choice for dial tone in Microsoft Teams.
  • Enhancements to the devices ecosystem for TeamsAn update for Skype Room Systems that enables them to join Teams meetings; Teams app for Surface Hub in the Microsoft Store; Teams Conferencing Gateway, which allows you to use existing Skype for Business certified SIP-based phones with Teams; and USB HID Support for Teams, enabling customers to answer, end calls and control mute and volume using USB peripherals. In addition, cloud video interop services to support Teams meetings with existing VTC systems are underway with offerings from Pexip, Polycom, and Blue Jeans to be generally available later this calendar year.

Per chi sta valutando di abbracciare Teams e sostituire eventualmente Skype for Business, questa documentazione potrebbe tornare utile.
