What you need to know
- Microsoft Teams will soon support quoting messages within chats.
- Teams will also expand its emoji options in the near future.
- You'll soon be able to use third-party services to sign documents within Teams.
Microsoft is always working on adding new features to Microsoft Teams and improving the service. Next month, we could see the arrival of some welcome additions to the app; the ability to quote messages, expanded emoji support, and the ability to sign documents using third-party services. A report by Dr Windows highlights several features outlined on the Microsoft 365 roadmap.
The Microsoft 365 roadmap is always subject to change, so we might not see these features next month, but when they do arrive, they'll add quite a bit to Teams.
First up is the ability to quote messages. Here is the description from the roadmap:
Next up is the expansion of emoji support (opens in new tab). Right now you can only use 85 emojis in Teams, but that will skyrocket up to over 800 soon.
You'll also be able to use third-party services to sign documents (opens in new tab) soon. This is an incredibly useful feature as it will let you use Adobe Sign, DocuSign, and other services to sign documents.
All of these features are currently in development. It's normal to see features added to Teams, but these would add quite a bit of functionality and help Teams compete with other services.
