Microsoft Teams Rooms December update

Published Dec 17 2019 08:00 AM 64.8K Views

Earlier this year we released content camera support that enables you to share an analog whiteboard into your Teams Meetings to create a more inclusive experience for remote participants. We’re pleased to announce that the content camera is now also available for Surface Pro-based systems (i.e. Logitech Smartdock, Crestron SR & Polycom MSR).

 

In addition to this, a content camera mounting kit for mounting the Logitech Brio content camera is available for purchase. Go to Brio Content Camera Kit on the Office.com Teams Devices showcase which includes all the accessories you need to install the camera (i.e. camera, mount, cabling, USB extenders).

To provide an easy license model for conference rooms, our Office 365 Meeting Room subscription is also now available to our government customers in Office 365 US Government Community (GCC). The Microsoft Teams Room app now supports the GCC cloud as well.

Microsoft Teams Rooms store app 4.3.23.0 is now available

We started releasing Microsoft Teams Room app version 4.3.21.0 earlier this week and the Store app will roll out to every Microsoft Teams Room in the next couple of weeks.

 

This release contains the following features:

 

Settings user interface refresh

We’ve refreshed our Settings UI on devices to reflect the new admin controls we’ve added for meeting room experiences. The new UI gives you a better organized view of your configuration options and adds a new About tab with useful information about device configuration.

These changes have no impact on device configuration with an XML file, which will continue to work as before.

 

Auto-accept Proximity-based calls

You can now configure Microsoft Teams Rooms to automatically accept proximity-based meeting joins. This simplifies the join experience and gets users into meetings even faster and, of course, we give admins the option to configure this feature based on their preferences.

We’re bringing the Room Controls button back to the main screen of the Microsoft Teams console so that partner extensions are just one click away.
