Microsoft is rolling out a new Teams application for its Surface Hub interactive whiteboards.
The vendor said that the new app is being rolled out over a four-week period, starting on 30 September, and will automatically replace its predecessor. It will be available for commercial and government customers.
Microsoft said: “This next generation of Teams on Surface Hub has been redesigned to bring your favourite features from the desktop and Microsoft Teams Rooms directly into your meeting space.
“With a new meeting stage, a robust set of meeting controls, and popular features including Together mode scenes, chat bubbles, live reactions, PowerPoint Live, and Whiteboard, Teams Rooms on Surface Hub enriches collaboration for the hybrid workplace”
“You can easily access your Microsoft 365 files and leverage a richer Whiteboard experience to confidently present and collaborate.”
Microsoft added that Teams Rooms for Surface Hub has been built in line with the main Teams apps to give users continuity and familiarity. Meetings can be joined from the Surface Hub welcome screen and the agenda page.
Surface Hub devices need to be running Windows 19042.1202 to get the update.
Microsoft also revealed that simplified management of Teams will be coming to the Surface Hub later this year.
Teams Admin Center will be coming to Surface Hub and will be available for Teams Rooms customers at no additional cost.
Microsoft Teams Rooms Managed Services, which is included in Teams Rooms Premium Licences, will also be available.
