Microsoft has announced the new version of Windows yesterday and with it was also announced a new native integration for Microsoft Teams in the operating system.
With Windows 11, chat, calling and video conferencing will be just one click away and you will be able to connect faster than ever with the people you care about.
With this new feature Microsoft gives another big step to disseminate the use of Microsoft Teams not only for work but also for personal use to connect with friends and family.
Below you can read the official note from Microsoft about this feature and also watch Panos Panay introducing it for the first time.
With Windows 11, we’re excited to introduce Chat from Microsoft Teams integrated in the taskbar. Now you can instantly connect through text, chat, voice or video with all of your personal contacts, anywhere, no matter the platform or device they’re on, across Windows, Android or iOS. If the person you’re connecting to on the other end hasn’t downloaded the Teams app, you can still connect with them via two-way SMS.
Windows 11 also gives you a more natural way to connect with friends and family through Teams, allowing you to instantly mute and unmute, or start presenting directly from the taskbar.
