Microsoft%20Teams%20Android  w630 - Microsoft Teams: New on Android

Microsoft has just announced a series of improvements for its Teams Rooms on Android. These include an updated calendar, Windows-inspired improvements for the Android touch console, and the ability to blur backgrounds for users joining from a personal account, the company announces in a new post. blog.

It’s hard to keep pace with updates to Teams functionality on Windows, iOS, and Android, as well as various integrations with Office 365 apps, like PowerPoint. Microsoft is promising a more “robust” calendar experience with Teams Rooms on Android, which allows users to view the current meeting with the new future meetings bonus as well.

Android device users should be aware of a new touchscreen remote console experience that no longer pretends to be a physical remote. It brings the Android app in line with the behavior of Teams Rooms on Windows 10, but its availability depends on the manufacturer’s support for the Android tablet or TV.

Blurred background

The app now displays the most important meeting and calling features, in addition to current and upcoming meetings. Users actually don’t need the touchscreen as it is optional and Teams Rooms on Android still works without it. “However, once the touch console is paired, the room front controls will be hidden and device operation will be available from the touch console,” notes Microsoft.

The blurry background, which improves meeting privacy, has been around for a year and is now available to people signed in with a Teams Rooms personal account on Android. Additionally, Microsoft has added the ability to start and stop recordings from Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android. This function can be found on the “Start recording” button in the ellipsis menu.

Android users should now notice that they can start a whiteboard session directly from their device from the new “Share Whiteboard” button in the same menu.
