Technology Messenger: Microsoft Teams becomes family manager

Messenger: Microsoft Teams becomes family manager


Picture: Microsoft

In the Personal Edition, Microsoft Teams becomes a family manager and thus positions itself outside of companies. User accounts are no longer tied to an organization and the grouping of the respective rooms is no longer necessary. Families can communicate via text, audio and video.

A central dashboard for the family

A central dashboard should help all family members to keep track of their own tasks, appointments and location information as well as shared files, but the agenda of other family members can also be viewed optionally. As a central point of contact, the dashboard should support families in better planning their everyday life and doing tasks. There is no connection to Microsoft SharePoint, which is why shared content is copied directly into the individual and group chats of the Personal Edition from Microsoft Teams.

Via the menu of the teams app, users should be able to quickly switch between the personal and business view.

In the Personal Edition, Microsoft Teams is more like a pure instant messenger as a mobile app for Android and iOS – the desktop app for Windows, on the other hand, is still geared towards the business customer area.

Family safe for login details and passwords

A so-called family safe makes it easier to store and manage as well as to share login data and passwords in the family circle. The family safe is protected by two-factor authentication (2FA) and end-to-end encryption are protected against unwanted access.

Microsoft also announced that the entire team ecosystem will work better with Skype in the future and that both applications will be merged even more closely.

A preview of family functions can already be tested by users logging into the Teams app with their private Microsoft account. Microsoft has announced that the new functions will be rolled out to all users “in the next few weeks”.
