There are today 200,000 organizations in 181 markets and 39 languages on Teams, including A.P. Moller-Maersk, ConocoPhillips, Macy's, NASCAR, Navistar, RLH Corporation, and Technicolor, and, as of another announcement today, General Motors. This includes features that will allow users to record, transcribe and save meetings to the cloud, integrations with voice assistant Cortana, inline message translation and several others.
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) says 200K organizations now use its Teams, a Slack alternative, up from 125K in September. Top of the list is Cortana voice interactions, which enable you to make a call, join a meeting, or invite someone to a meeting using your voice. Alongside Cortana and translation, Microsoft is also adding cloud recording for meetings with automatic transcription and timecoding, background blur on video, mobile sharing for meetings, and the ability to find and add Skype Room Systems into any meetings.
Video call participants will be able to blur the background on their calls, so the person you're talking to won't be able to see what's behind you. Those same voice commands will work with conference room equipment and IP phones, too.
