What’s New In Microsoft Teams – November 2023

Our regular monthly Microsoft Teams update for November. This release includes new updates to Microsoft Teams Copilot, Teams Phone & Teams-certified Devices.

Microsoft Teams Copilot

Copilot in Teams Meetings without transcript retention

Copilot can now be used during a meeting without retaining a transcript after the meeting. Admins can give meeting organisers the ability to set their preferences before or during the meeting. When enabled without transcription, you can ask Copilot any question during the meeting, and after the meeting ends no transcript or Copilot interactions will be retained. Since no transcript is retained after the meeting, neither intelligent recap nor Copilot will be available after the meeting.

Copilot writing assistance in Teams chat and channels

Express yourself better and transform your ideas into succinct messages with Copilot in the compose box writing assistance. Enter your draft message into the compose box, whether in chat, meeting chat or channel and Copilot can help you. Choose to rewrite the message, adjust the tone to be casual, professional, confident, enthusiastic and modify the length of the message before you send it.

Copilot in Teams channels

Get up to speed on lengthy discussions quickly by asking Copilot to highlight key information from a channel post conversation, such as your task list, key discussion points, or any other question you have. Copilot will generate an organised summary of the information you requested. The summary of information will include citations, to keep users aware of the source.
