With the change in work patterns, hybrid work has become increasingly popular providing a lot of flexibility to users. The majority of time spent working continues to be consumed by virtual and hybrid meetings. Hence, businesses need an integrated solution that combines all the advanced meeting capabilities, taking meeting culture to the next level. Microsoft Teams Premium is a new add-on license that allows businesses to enhance their current Teams experience with more personalized, intelligent, and protected meetings and provides many more additional features. It offers AI-powered meetings, including Large Language Models powered by OpenAI’s GPT-3.5 that enables businesses to start managing meeting overload and discover important meeting highlights. In this article, we will discuss the new features offered by Microsoft Teams Premium.
