According to a report by the Verge , Microsoft has discarded the Electron foundations of Teams and has adopted Microsoft's Edge WebView2 technology. There are also some improvements to the user interface within the app.
Users can experience the new features of the app in the Teams client where business users will have to upgrade to the newer version. However, Microsoft says that the transition would be swift like a simple software update. Furthermore, users of the "classic Teams" version will be automatically transitioned to the new version in the near future.
Mac users will also be experiencing improvements in the app as they were not part of the preview. Now, Teams will also include Microsoft's AI-powered Copilot which will enable users to have effective meetings. Microsoft said, “Copilot in Teams chat helps you get up to speed on conversations by quickly reviewing the main points, action items, and decisions without having to scroll through long threads.”
