What you need to know
- Microsoft Teams will soon support custom scenes for Together Mode.
- You'll be able to use these scenes to increase immersion into video calls and meetings.
- The feature could arrive as soon as June 2021.
Microsoft Teams Together Mode allows you to place a group of people into a virtual scene, such as a classroom or coffee house. It's a fun way to customize a meeting experience, and it can also be used to make a call feel a little bit more natural. Soon, Teams will allow people to create custom scenes for Together Mode.
The feature, which was spotted by OnMSFT, will let people make scenes through the Developer Portal for Microsoft Teams.
Here's the description of the feature from the Microsoft 365 roadmap:
The roadmap indicates that the feature could arrive as soon as June 2021, but dates on the roadmap are always subject to change.
Currently, Together Mode only lets you select pre-set backgrounds from Microsoft. Creating custom Teams backgrounds for individuals within calls is an incredibly popular feature in Teams, so it's likely that custom backgrounds for Together Mode will be popular as well.
