Microsoft Teams Premium is now available in preview, but only to a subset of Microsoft 365 subscribers. This version of the collaboration and communication app was first introduced at Ignite 2022 in October. It is now landing premium for select commercial customers for a limited trial run.
Microsoft Teams Premium is a new version of the platform that Microsoft says will provide AI-driven performance that acts like a virtual assistant during a meeting. This is known as Intelligent Recap and it will generate tasks, create new meeting chapters, and take personalized highlights from recordings.
Users can also access live translations for captions for over 40 languages. Furthermore, Teams Premium adds the following meetings tools:
- “New meeting guides that automatically set up the right meeting options.
- Upleveled safeguards for confidential information with advanced meeting protection, including watermarking and sensitivity labels.
- Friction-free Virtual Appointments for personalized business-to-consumer engagements.
- The ability to host high-quality webinars using advanced functionality to drive deeper engagement and generate new leads.”
Microsoft Teams Premium comes as an add-on that costs $10 per user per month. Microsoft says the current testing will last a couple of months before a move to general availability during February 2023.
Microsoft 365 and Office 365 subscribers can purchase Teams Premiums on top of the existing app. You can read Microsoft’s lengthy blog explaining the features of Premium, and how they benefit participants, meeting hosts, and Teams admins.
