Microsoft to add new shared view mode to Microsoft Teams meeting rooms for BYOD
Microsoft recently unveiled a new feature on its Microsoft 365 roadmap, aimed at Microsoft Teams users. Split view mode aims to improve the meeting experience in Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) meeting rooms. Roadmap also announced that Microsoft Teams will use AI to eliminate background noise during calls and meetings.
What is BYOD? Employees can use their personal devices for work-related activities under the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, such as accessing company email, files, and applications using their smartphones , tablets, laptops or other devices.
Users can use this mode to extend their team meeting by presenting a view-only version of the scene on the TV screen in BYOD meeting rooms.
The main purpose of this feature is to project meeting content in front of the room for all participants to see while potentially ensuring that the host’s desktop remains private. This could potentially minimize exposure of personal information to others in the room and allow everyone to view the presentation without any distractions.
The feature, identified by code 184363, was added to the roadmap on November 16, 2023. It is specifically designed for Microsoft Teams in various cloud instances, including GCC, Worldwide (Standard Multi-Tenant), DoD, and GCC High , running on the desktop platform.
Scheduled for a general availability phase, deployment of this feature is expected to begin in January 2024, providing users with an enhanced and secure meeting environment within BYOD meeting spaces.
