Tech giant Microsoft on Tuesday made an announcement as per which it’s Microsoft Teams will soon support end-to-end encryption for one-to-one Microsoft Teams calls, to provide an additional option for conducting sensitive online conversations. This modification was made to address customers’ security and compliance requirements.

Following the update, IT admins will be having full discretion over who can use the end-to-end encrypted calls in the organisation. At present, Microsoft Teams does not support end-to-end encryption for meetings.

Microsoft during its ‘Ignite 2021’ virtual event said that this newly introduced feature will be available currently to the commercial customers in preview in the first half of this year.

Microsoft said “Our first mode, Standout, shows the speaker’s video feed in front of the shared content. Next, Reporter will show content as a visual aid above the speaker’s shoulder, just like during a news segment.” It further said that “Third, Side-by-side will show the presenter’s video feed alongside their content as they present. Presenter mode will be available soon.”
The company also introduced many other features to make it easier to collaborate across organisations and event sizes.
Jared Spataro, Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365 said that “Now with Teams, you can easily organize and conduct interactive webinars for people inside and outside of your organization with up to 1,000 attendees.”
He also said that “Plus, during this time of increased remote work, take advantage of even larger 20,000-person broadcasts through the end of this year.”
