The new update to the Microsoft 365 roadmap exposes other new capabilities that will reach Microsoft Teams users over the next few months. With this, we can see Microsoft's continued commitment to keep its collaborative workgroup platform continuously improving.

In this regard, some of the new capacities are quite striking, such as the possibility of setting timers for meeting rooms, which at the end of the established period, all those present in them will be back part of the main meeting.

Covering all kinds of situations and needs

This is one of the features that will arrive soon, but on the other hand, meeting organizers will be able to establish blockades of them to prevent the access of third parties, who will receive a notice of this when trying to enter.

This other feature will arrive throughout next May in Microsoft Teams.

Also, to save time on configurations, users will be able to reuse those settings that they already have in the meeting rooms to be available in multiple sessions.

It is also interested in the new supervised chat feature, a feature focused especially on teachers and other professionals from the world of education, which will prevent students from having conversations with each other except when a supervisor is present among them.


This latter capability will arrive this April, along with the ability to remain in the rooms, and even the possibility to carry out PowerPoint slideshows through Live Presentations, another of the new capabilities that are currently in development.

But first, precisely during the remainder of this March, the ability to establish exclusion lists will arrive, allowing organizers to create lists containing all those users who do not want them to access their meetings, with the focus placed especially on people belonging to commercial pressure groups, allowing other participants to enter.

This is yet another example of Microsoft's interest in empowering Teams, increasing efforts to bring new capabilities to make it as comprehensive a solution as possible, covering all sorts of issues that may arise at any given time, so that users have everything they need to carry out their projects collaboratively.
