Microsoft Teams Copilot AI Adds Advanced Text Customization

The new Custom Tone feature extends the Adjust functionality by allowing a more tailored way of rewriting messages.

-

has introduced a new option named “Custom Tone” in its Teams application, adding further capabilities to its Copilot generative AI assistant. The new feature aims to help users better manage the tone and style of their communications within chats and meetings.

Improved Chat Functionalities

Previously, Copilot in Teams included features such as Rewrite and Adjust. Rewrite helps users to improve message clarity and effectiveness by rephrasing texts. Adjust also modifies messages to fit different audiences, like coworkers, friends, or family.

The Custom Tone feature extends the Adjust functionality by allowing a more tailored way of rewriting messages. Users can provide prompts specifying the desired alterations. According to Microsoft, this tool supports multiple changes simultaneously, such as incorporating persuasive elements, adding more context, or converting lengthy texts into bullet points.

Personalization and Translation

Custom Tone can also handle open prompts for translating Teams messages into various languages. For instance, users can instruct to expand and cheer up a message while translating it into Spanish. This versatility aims to make communication more personalized and effective.

Microsoft provides a Copilot Lab page for users who may need assistance creating effective prompts for the Custom Tone feature. This resource offers prompt suggestions to help users fully utilize Copilot's functionalities.

Seamless Access and Improvements

Accessible directly from the text compose box in both chats and channels, the Custom Tone feature goes beyond simple spell-checking and grammar correction. It enhances the clarity, tone, and overall impact of messages, helping users to respond more effectively and improve collaboration.
