Microsoft Teams adds live reactions

Microsoft Teams has many features that allow users to customize the dynamics of their video calls to different contexts. So you can easily create a space for teamwork, online classes or just to communicate with your friends.

However, not all users feel comfortable expressing themselves in video calls, nor is it easy to ask that everyone be able to express themselves in large meetings. To facilitate this in different contexts, you are adding up the option of live reactions.

Yes, they are emojis that can be used in real-time while developing a video conference. These emojis will be visible in a flyout so users can use them at any time during the meeting. But instead of going out in a text chat, they'll appear floating on the screen.

For example, if your boss is giving new instructions about a project, your team will be able to use live reactions to express that they understood or agree. Or if it's news, then you can use the emojis of applause or hearts to show that the news is to your liking.

And of course, they can be useful to animate during a presentation, support some motion, ask questions, among many other situations. So at a glance, the meeting creator will be able to see the reactions of his entire team without requiring everyone to speak, or the meeting to be interrupted.

And they can also become an interesting option for those who are shy and unused by expressing themselves in front of the camera.
