Microsoft Search will soon be able to search for specific Microsoft Teams meetings
An upcoming feature for Microsoft Search will make it much easier to find quotes and details from recorded Microsoft Teams meetings.
What you need to know
- Microsoft Teams meetings will soon be searchable based on what was said by participants.
- The feature will work with meetings recorded to OneDrive or SharePoint that had live transcription enabled.
- The new search functionality could arrive as soon as this month, but that's subject to change.
Microsoft Teams can transcribe meetings as they happen. The functionality makes it easier to follow along live and also provides a full transcript of the meeting for later review. Soon, you'll be able to use Microsoft Search to find specific meetings based on what was said by participants.
The feature appears on the Microsoft 365 roadmap (opens in new tab). It could roll out this month, but dates on the roadmap are subject to change.
Here's the description of the feature from Microsoft:
Being able to search for a meeting based on what was said will make it much easier to find specific quotes or details. The Microsoft 365 roadmap entry only specifically mentions Teams for desktop.
Live transcription only works with scheduled Teams meetings at the moment, but support for unscheduled meetings could arrive as soon as this July.
