Microsoft Teams meetings:
communicate and collaborate together
Teams meetings enable interactive, collaborative meetings with people inside and outside your organization. Use Teams meetings for day-to-day activities including recurring project checkpoints, catch-ups with colleagues, conversations with customers, and brainstorming sessions. Companies and schools also use Teams meetings to support remote learning and training with both internal and external audiences.

Teams meetings work for you before, during, and after the meeting:


Successful meetings require preparation: sharing agendas and setting context before people gather. Every Teams meeting has its own conversation. Participants can chat with each other and share content prior to the meeting. That conversation and content can be brought directly into the meeting.


Once the meeting begins, people can use a variety of features that help focus attention, drive engagement, and foster inclusion. These include high-fidelity audio and video, live captions, screen sharing, real-time collaboration on documents including coauthoring with Office 365 apps, and a digital whiteboard. Teams meetings can remove distractions by suppressing background noise, and allow participants to blur or customize their video background to preserve privacy (coming soon). Teams meetings also help you see physical whiteboards, even when people are standing in front of them.


After the meeting, all of the meeting’s assets are preserved in the meeting conversation, so participants can review, continue the discussion, and drive the work forward. You can come back to the meeting to find the searchable recording, chat, meeting notes, digital whiteboard, and shared files. Nothing gets lost in the cracks.
