What is Together Mode in Microsoft Teams?


Microsoft launched together mode in their meeting app Microsoft Teams. It is a grouping of people in a particular meeting. Microsoft Team together mode creates the virtual live avatar of yourself in the meeting and group with the other member in the meeting with showing your only face and shoulder part and seated in an auditorium or meeting room with your colleagues to make it look more interactive and engage better with the help of Microsoft AI technologies.

The Together Mode in Microsoft Teams is rolled out along with the all-new user interface(UI), to make it more engaging and interactive in this COVID-19 pandemic and make you more closer to your team. Earlier the menu use the in the mid-bottom of the screen but now all the menu and buttons will be available on the upper corner side of the Teams meeting app.

Together mode, now rolling out in Microsoft Teams, combines decades of research and product development to place all the participants on a video call together in a virtual space, such as an auditorium, meeting room or coffee bar, so they look like they’re in the same place together. The new feature ditches the traditional grid of boxes, creating an environment that users say has a profound impact on the feel of the video conference and provides more cohesion to the group.
