Microsoft updates Teams Rooms for Android with new touch and whiteboard features.

Recently, Microsoft has been working on a variety of Teams features, such as a clever Outlook integration, AI-powered file-sharing, and multi-question surveys. Better touch and collaboration experiences are now available for Teams Rooms on Android.

We now have a more practical way to access Whiteboard, first. Until recently, sharing your screen after opening Whiteboard in a Teams meeting was the sole option. However, you may now start discussing with others outside of a Teams meeting by simply approaching a Teams Rooms display and touching the Whiteboard button on the home screen. Nevertheless, Teams administrators must activate this behaviour by selecting the “Allow start Whiteboard” setting.

There is a quicker and more practical approach to move from a physical whiteboard to an online one as well. Simply click the “Start meeting” button on the whiteboard to start a meeting online and present your screen at the same time. Then, you can instantly add remote participants. The Content + Gallery arrangement can also be utilised by presenters.

Additionally, users can now take advantage of a better content sharing experience thanks to the updated share menu. There will be a single location for all content sharing options, including Whiteboard.

Several improvements to the presentation are also included. tplots s,istplots.. The “Allow touch screen controls” policy must be enabled in order to enable this behaviour. Additionally, better chat notifications, support for remote camera pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) commands from a desktop, and 4K displays are now all supported.

By upgrading to Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android update 3 (App version: 1449/, you can take advantage of all of these features.
