Microsoft has stated that it is working to integrate apps such as Teams into Windows 11, the company’s most recent operating system. Teams users will be able to hover over open windows on the taskbar and immediately share the window content on a Microsoft Teams conversation thanks to the integration. This makes screen sharing for Teams and other communication apps on Windows 11 a lot easier.
To begin, the company is putting the capability to the test with Microsoft Teams for work or education, rather than the consumer version of Teams that comes standard with Windows 11.
While commenting on the deployment, Amanda Langowski, head of Microsoft’s Windows Insider programme, noted, “This means not everyone will see this right immediately with their Teams calls.” “We hope to introduce this to Microsoft Teams Chat (Microsoft Teams for home) eventually,” she added.
The capability will not be confined to Microsoft Teams and will be available in other programmes as well, according to the company. That means that apps like Zoom may be able to include the feature into their apps, making it more easier for Windows 11 users to share what’s on their screen during video conversations.
Microsoft hasn’t said when the feature would be included in Windows 11, but it’s expected to arrive in early 2022. In other developments, Microsoft has confirmed that the OneDrive desktop programme for older Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 operating systems will be discontinued. In a blog post, the corporation confirmed the news.
