Microsoft Teams


Watch the Teams update video here.


The new Tasks app in Teams merges individual tasks from Microsoft To Do and team tasks from Microsoft Planner for complete task management. The Tasks app is now available in desktop, web and mobile experiences. Guest users will be limited only to mobile and not be able to see it on the desktop version.


Together Mode enables more engaging meetings for remote workers that may be suffering from “meeting fatigue.” This feature places video call participants in a virtual space that make it appear as though they are in the same environment, like an auditorium, sitting side-by-side. In this view, Together Mode also helps presenters better gauge audience reactions.

The Lists app will be available in individual Channels as a tab. Users that want to track a list can click the “+” button next to tabs, search for the Lists app in the tab gallery, and easily add it.


All the standard features that are available for Lists in SharePoint web are also now accessible in the Lists app for Teams, which includes the three main views – grid, gallery, and calendar, as well as custom. Users can create lists or pick from eight standard templates.

A standalone Microsoft Lists app for iOS is anticipated for Q4 this year.
