With the ever-increasing numbers of offices and employees working from home, Microsoft is making updates to Teams to keep up with the Joneses.

 

And by “the Joneses,” we mean other leading collaboration platforms, like Zoom and Google Meet.

 

The new Teams feature, which will be rolled out this month, is a low-data mode that will address bandwidth issues users sometimes face. When a user has a poor connection, low-data mode will prioritize audio over video to ensure that the user is at least heard over the call.

 

This feature will be especially helpful for those who are sharing networks with their spouses or children who are also working or learning from home.

 

Microsoft’s continuous updates to Teams are closing the gaps between this application and it’s popular competitors.
