Users of Microsoft Teams on Apple's iOS platform are receiving a new update today. Microsoft has bumped its workplace chat app on iPhone and iPad to version 2.0.1. While this is a relatively light update in terms of features, Microsoft has one new functionality.
Specifically, Microsoft Teams now allows users on iOS to swap between contents and the video feed during a meeting. Elsewhere, the platform also has new audio settings for both the speakers and microphone on iPad or iPhone.
Microsoft has also handled some of the usual bug fixes we associated with any app update. Below is a full changelog for version 2.0.1:
- Switch between content and participant videos during a meeting
- Mute mic and speaker by default when a meeting room is nearby and joined into the same meeting
- Bug fixes and performance improvements

In recent months, Microsoft has been basking in the glory of Teams success. The company confirmed the platform has over 20 million Daily Active Users (DAUs).
This number is significantly higher than Slack's 12 million. However, Slack quickly refuted Microsoft's numbers as not as impressive as they seem. Later, a CNBC survey has found Microsoft Teams is used twice as much as Slack.
In terms of mobile, Microsoft Teams' walkie talkie feature has been adopted by Samsung for Android devices. Teams Walkie Talkie will be integrated in the new Galaxy XCover Pro smartphone.
Working through Wi-Fi or cellular connection, the Walkie Talkie feature will enable frontline workers to connect securely on their smartphone. The idea is to bring one less device. While the feature will be available across the board for Microsoft Teams, Samsung has integrated it into the Galaxy XCover Pro.
