What’s New in Microsoft 365 – February 2022
Microsoft has published its monthly roundup of all the new features and capabilities added to the Microsoft 365 subscription service. This month, the Redmond giant has highlighted several improvements made to the Windows 365 Cloud PC service, Microsoft Teams, Yammer, more. Here is a look at everything you need to know.
Windows 365 Cloud PC service
First up, Microsoft has announced some enhancements for its Windows 365 Cloud PC service. Earlier this month, the company rolled out new Azure Active Directory Join support that allows organizations to set up Cloud PCs without an Azure subscription. Additionally, Microsoft has launched a localized first-run experience for Windows 365 Cloud PCs, which is now supported in 38 different languages. These new capabilities are currently available in public preview for Windows 365 Enterprise edition customers.
Next up are improvements to the Teams collaboration service. The Microsoft Teams desktop app has received a new update that lets participants pin or hide their own video on the meeting stage. The ability to hide the self-view should help to reduce meeting fatigue and distractions during the video call.
Yammer Communities & more
Yammer is also getting a couple of new features this month. The Redmond giant has introduced a new “suggested communities” panel that helps users find and join new communities. In addition, admins can now set Yammer communities to auto-renew based on new views and engagement. Microsoft has also made it possible for EU Yammer users to join networks hosted in the United States while maintaining their compliance policies. This feature is currently rolling out to all standard release customers, and it should hit genal availability in late March 2022.
Last but not least, Viva Learning has added a new integration with learning management system providers such as Saba Cloud, Cornerstone OnDemand, as well as SAP SuccessFactors. Now, managers can use the Viva Learning module to assign training and learning assignments to employees in their organization.
