You can communicate more effectively with new chat functionality !

You can now send a chat message directly from the command box without leaving the page you’re on. Simply type the @ symbol and someone’s name into the command box at the top of your screen and type your message to start a chat conversation. Thus, you can send a message without switching context. Another easy way to relay a message is to hover over someone’s profile picture to send a quick chat right from their contact card. This makes it simple to switch from an open channel conversation to a private chat with someone.

Also, you can add someone from outside of your organization into a group call in Teams by dialing their number. You’ve also got the option of distributing a dial-in phone number so anyone outside of your organization can join.

New features added for collaborate more effectively. Whenever a team owner creates a new team or channel, they can now auto-favorite important channels for the rest of the team. By doing so, the channel will automatically show up in every team member’s favorites making it easy for them to discover and access the new channel. Also, you can now use the SharePoint tab to place important pages, news articles and lists as individual tabs in a channel. This allows you to access and fully interact with the dynamic, data-driven pages and news articles and surface them right in the context of your work in Teams. You can fully interact with the content – including filtering and views for lists.

Finally, Planner has made some updates to integrate more seamlessly into Teams. With Schedule view, you can get an overview of upcoming tasks and drag and drop them to set dates and with the Filter and Group by options, you can now group tasks by buckets such as “Assigned To”, “Progress”, “Due Date” and “Labels”.
