What are the AI features of Microsoft Teams Premium?
Microsoft recently entered a “multiyear, multibillion-dollar investment” with AI company OpenAI, said CEO Satya Nadella.
Both companies made headlines after the former poured $10 billion into ChatGPT’s founder. Moreover, Microsoft said it would integrate OpenAI tech into its services.
Due to the artificial intelligence hype, most people want to know how that would work. Consequently, we will discuss the AI features of Microsoft Teams Premium first.
The paid subscription service uses OpenAI’s ChatGPT to create and assign tasks to your team members.
Also, it would translate your captions during meetings and jot down their statements on a transcript. After your discussion, it can help you find specific details within that record.
Microsoft Teams Premium automatically divides your meetings into chapters and lets you set recording highlights.
As a result, you could easily find them whenever necessary. It could come in handy when trying to emphasize a specific point in the discussion for training purposes.

That enables your virtual meetings to look more professional. Moreover, Microsoft Teams Premium has additional features for meeting with clients and hosting webinars.
It allows your clients to join your meetings without downloading Microsoft Teams on their smartphones.
Furthermore, the new Premium tier enables pre-appointment SMS reminders and a branded lobby room.
The online service helps you manage virtual meetings with pre-appointment chat capabilities as you meet more clients.
Later, you could optimize your meetings by checking appointment reports that monitor trends like wait times and no-shows.
Microsoft Teams Premium makes online seminars easier by streamlining the registration process for attendees.
It lets you create a waitlist and manually approve them too. Also, you may set automatic reminder emails to ensure their attendance.
The paid subscription reduces clutter during online seminars so your audience can focus more intently.
Afterward, it allows you to create a virtual green room to chat face-to-face with the attendees for hosting Q&As and rehearsing meetings.
More importantly, Microsoft Teams Premium provides heightened security for virtual appointments.
It lets you control who can record meetings and set end-to-end encryption to protect critical discussions.
