    Microsoft has added a new feature that is going to improve its search functionality better. Called Top Hits, this new feature is coming to Microsoft Teams. Microsoft has published a new entry to the Microsoft 365 Cloud PC service roadmap and according to this, Top Hits is going to be added to automatically generate the most relevant search results.

    The Top Hits feature is still under development and is expected to roll out by the end of August. According to Microsoft, this Top Hits section will autosuggest the most relevant results across chats, files, people, and other content stored or shared in the app. With this feature, you can find what you searched for faster since this feature adds another layer of the search algorithm to what already exists on Microsoft Teams.

    Microsoft has been trying to make Teams popular by adding a whole bunch of features to it ever since the pandemic began, including video calls, file sharing, etc. The company has also made it possible for Microsoft Teams users to merge works and personal accounts in the same app, at the same time. This feature rolled out just about a month ago, allows people to use both their personal and and work accounts on the same app on the Windows PC and has removed the need to toggle between two different types of accounts.

    Microsoft has also added new video conferencing features to the platform, like Reporter mode, Standout mode, and Side-by-side modes over the pandemic. In all these modes the background of the presenter on Microsoft Teams is removed from the presentation and is replaced with either the content that is going to be shown or the picture of the person presenting that particular chunk of content, or both depending on their preference.
