At that time, several software companies developed software and applications so that people can avail themselves for online meetings, conferences, and works. User experience and intuitive usage of the platform were eminent as all kinds of people will be using this. Microsoft Teams is one of the many platforms from then on.
Back in 2020, Microsoft Family Safety App and Microsoft Teams came along with Microsoft 365. Microsoft has been always a business-oriented product producer. Due to the awesome user-friendliness, Microsoft is a worldwide choice for OS and Office software. The recent update of MS Teams shows a number of potential features to be the best out there right now.
A major but interesting feature you are allowed to use in Microsoft Teams named “Together Mode.” Here the meeting you will attend will show a virtual environment. Microsoft wants to give you a feel of actually meeting with someone in a restaurant or at a coffee shop with the precise simulation of a background GIF.
Anyone Can Join a Call
There are live emojis and GIFs as well. You can react to others when you are on a call. Speaking of call on Microsoft Teams, now anyone can join any online meeting or call by using the App or the web version on the browser.

Anyone Can Join a Chat
Apart from these, MS Teams adds up a new feature. As mentioned above that you can add anyone to a call even if a non-Teams user. Similarly, now you can add anyone to a chat just with his/her phone number. The non-user will get SMS on their phone as soon as someone texts on that chatbox. However, It is not yet clear that if you share a to-do list with your collaborators how non-users will interact with it. Stay tuned for the update.
