During Microsoft Inspire, Microsoft announced that they will be introducing a Video Clip feature to Teams designed to help users record, send and view short videos. A nifty feature that serves as an alternative to sending out messages.

As spotted by Petri Jämsen on LinkedIn, users can now preview Video Clip in Teams. Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic hit, a lot of organizations adopted hybrid work. With this new feature, it will be easier and more seamless as users will be able to send out short videos lasting up to one minute on Teams. What’s more, the recepient will also be able to playback the video at their own convenience. (via Windows Central)

Microsoft Teams already had the option of sending videos but only as files, which was a bit technical and took up a bit of time. But with Video Clip users can just tap, record, and send the video directly from the platform, thus making it more effective and efficient. According to Microsoft, the feature is likely to reach general availability for all desktop, mobile, and web users in September.

In other Teams related news, Microsoft announced that Teams is officially optimized for Apple Silicon which essentially means that users with Apple M1 or Apple M2-powered Macs will be able to get better performance out of the app as it is no longer dependent on Apple’s Rosetta 2 emulation.
