The Microsoft Teams app for Android and iOS devices received an update this week. The teamwork and video conferencing application update brings a number of features to both platforms. However, the features included in the update are different on both platforms. The iOS update has more important features compared to its Android counterpart.
Released on the Microsoft Teams desktop last month, iOS users can now use live reactions during a team meeting or one-on-one call. These reactions range from animated thumbs to hearts, applause, laughter, and more. IPad users will now be able to present at live events. This feature will help you share content with your team easily. Additionally, iOS users can now remove cached account information from the login page.
For Android folks, the new update brings minor updates. Now anyone can log in and join events with Teams for friends and family. They also have the ability to forward meetings to one person or more. For users who have upgraded to Android 11, there is improved notification support at the top of the notification drawer.
The update is rolling out for users around the world. To get these features on your smartphones, make sure the app is up to date by going to the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
Recently, Microsoft Teams introduced the integration of Snap Camera (by Snapchat) with the desktop app, giving users the ability to add AR filters. In addition, a “Together Mode” was also introduced that allows the host to transport participants to a cafeteria or auditorium during a meeting.
