What's new in Teams October 2020 edition

 New months, and here is a wrapup on what's new in Teams October 2020. 

According to this blog here is what's new.

  1. Live Captions with speaker attribution
    Microsoft Teams added speaker attribution to live captions so that you can see who is speaking along with what’s being said, making meetings more inclusive and easier to follow along
  2. Spotlight an individual video participant for all attendees in a Teams meeting
    Presenters can now pin an individual video feed for all attendees to see during a Teams meeting. Once pinned, the individual identified as the spotlight will be the main video shown to all participants. This applies to PC, Mac, mobile (view only) and Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows
  3. Prevent attendees from unmuting in Teams Meetings
    Meeting organizers and presenters can now prevent attendees from unmuting during the meeting and enable specific attendees to unmute when they raise their hands. This can be helpful for press conferences and classrooms scenarios where you want to be in control of who’s speaking.
