Microsoft launched a new feature: RTMP streaming from within Microsoft Teams. This allows you to stream from Microsoft Teams to any supported service - such as YouTube, LinkedIn Live, Twitter, Facebook Live and many third-party event platforms. In this post we show you how to configure it, and what to expect when you use it.
In November 2016, Microsoft launched the preview version of a new application they called Teams. General availability duly came on March 14, 2017. Five years later, there's no denying the success of Teams and its influence across the Microsoft 365 ecosystem. Along with the success, Teams has had its glitches and failures, but the overall balance sheet is very positive.
Last year, Microsoft announced new pro video output features coming to Microsoft Teams aimed at making it easier to get full-quality video feeds from Teams meetings into other platforms. This article examines the new features along with recent improvements to NDI output functionality.
Teams finally arrives in Apple CarPlay touting support for joining meeting and making calls. We road test this new feature to see whether it lives up to expectations.
Anyone who can run a Microsoft Teams meeting can now run a webinar using a modified version of a standard Teams meeting. Microsoft is quite clever in extending the standard functionality to be able to deliver the features needed to publish and deliver a webinar. Some rough edges exist, but because running a webinar is very like running a regular meeting, you can expect that this will be an extremely popular new feature.
Teams offers meeting organizers the ability to create an automatic transcript of conversations in meetings. For now, the feature is limited to the Teams desktop client and only for US English. The AI-based processing works well if people speak clearly and have good microphones, but even if a few bloopers exist in a transcript, it can be downloaded and fixed up in Word to create a permanent record. Overall, this is a very interesting and worthwhile feature to add to Teams meetings.

In 2020, the pandemic forced The Experts Conference (TEC) to switch from an in-person to a virtual event. This article dives into the real practical challenges I faced turning a highly engaging in-person event into a successful virtual one using the Teams platform. I'll explain why we chose and how we used Microsoft Teams, the personnel required to pull this off, including the tenant administrator's critical role, an overview of the technical environment, and several of the significant technical/delivery gotchas we had to live with or workaround.
Microsoft has released several improvements to Teams meetings to make these gatherings more functional and easier to use. The features range from giving video feeds priority in the gallery view to reactions in meetings to allow participants to show what they really think about a presentation. It's all grist to the mill in the battle for corporate online meeting domination between Teams and Zoom.
