Microsoft will be bringing some of the features of Teams business messenger to its paid version of Teams Premium – the ability to connect this option for a 30-day trial period became available in December.
At the end of December, Microsoft updated the content of the Teams help section, noting that some previously public features of the messenger will now only work with a Premium subscription. The full launch of the Premium version is expected in early February, but Microsoft will keep the relevant features available for an additional 30-day grace period.
The developer gave a complete list of these features:
translation with subtitles in real time; Temporary markers in meeting recordings when a user connects or disconnects; customizable scene organization for Together mode; SMS notifications for virtual meetings; organizational analytics of virtual meetings; showing scheduled queue in virtual meetings.
All these features will become unavailable after the 30-day grace period, unless the premium subscription is activated. In addition, it will be possible to add watermarks to the image to protect confidential data, it will also be possible to set a ban on recording meetings and copying text information from a chat. The estimated cost of a Teams Premium subscription will be $10 per month – Microsoft will announce the exact amount when it becomes available.
