What you need to know

  • Microsoft Teams on iOS now supports raising your virtual hand in video calls.
  • The same update also adds the ability to invite people to meetings with a link.
  • The update also makes it easy to access files, org charts, and other features from the "More" section of the app.

Microsoft Teams on iOS recently gained several new features, including the ability to raise your hand in meetings (via Neowin). The update to version 2.0.11 also brings the ability to invite people to a meeting with an invite link from the app and the option to add files and folders to channels. The update began rolling out over the weekend, so it should be available to everyone.

Here's the complete changelog for Microsoft Teams on iOS:

  • Access files, org charts, and other features from "More" in the bottom bar of the app
  • Invite people to your meeting with an invite link
  • Add files and folders to channels
  • Raise a virtual hand during a meeting to let others know you want to speak
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

How Microsoft Teams changed my football team during the pandemic

Microsoft Teams gained the hand raise feature on desktops last week, and it's a useful way to communicate while your microphone is muted.

  • This is a great and important feature. With my Jobe, we tend to use Adobe connect for virtual training. Anytime we've used Teams for our team meetings, it can get a little hectic trying to speak, when everyone just kind of jumps in, because there is no way to know who wants to speak or what order.
