Among the most notable of these new tools, announced ahead of Microsoft’s annual partner conference Inspire, is an “intelligent live event” capability that looks like a souped up Facebook Live. The videos can be as simple or complex as needed, from laptop webcams to studio-style setups.
These videos can be watched live or on-demand. Microsoft has infused artificial intelligence into the feature to allow users to search within videos for specific speakers or peruse a transcript.
A public preview of live events in Microsoft 365 — which encompasses Windows, Office and the Enterprise Mobility + Security program — will be available in the paid version of Microsoft Teams, Yammer and in Microsoft Stream over the next month.
