Published on

At its annual Ignite event, Microsoft said it would launch Teams Premium as a preview in December. It kept its promise by launching the service for its commercial customers. The Microsoft Teams Premium preview is now widely available with a 30-day free trial. Searchers can try the service through the Microsoft 365 admin center without paying a fee.

Teams Premium is essentially an add-on within Microsoft Teams and has more customization, artificial intelligence functionality, and built-in security features. With the premium service, Microsoft aims to make virtual meetings more personal, intelligent and secure. The company has listed no fewer than five features that Teams Premium users can try out right now, which reads as follows:

  • Extend your organization’s brand and company culture across meetings with branding, organization backgrounds, and organization scenes together.
  • Use artificial intelligence to make the meetings you attend (and miss) more productive and impactful with live translation for subtitles to remove language barriers and smart summary features that offer smarter recordings with automatically generated chapters, suggested AI action items and insights to quickly catch up on missed meetings where your name was mentioned .
  • Apply advanced meeting protection such as watermarking, end-to-end encryption for meetings and sensitive meeting labels with chat copy/paste prevention in a meeting to better protect your virtual meetings.
  • Provide a high-quality webinar experience through advanced capabilities to streamline event workflows with a registration waitlist and manual approval, facilitate behind-the-scenes operations with a virtual green room for presenters (separate from attendees) before the event begins, and manage the attendee experience so they only see shared content and participants are brought on the screen.
  • Manage your end-to-end virtual meeting experience with advanced features like text reminders, custom branded virtual meetings, and a central virtual meeting dashboard for a quick view of schedules, queues, and analytics to track key usage insights like no-shows and wait time for each meeting.

B Official blog post, Microsoft also said that the features under the Teams Premium offering will continue to appear until January of next year. If all goes as planned, Microsoft Teams Premium will be generally available in February 2023 and will cost $10 per user per month.

Microsoft has released a detailed tutorial video, which you can watch above, that covers everything about the new Teams Premium add-on, from discussing how to set it up to walking you through how to use the premium features.
