Microsoft Teams Premium integrates ChatGPT technology

Announced several weeks ago, the paid version of Microsoft Teams now integrates artificial intelligence, powered by OpenAI’s GPT-3.5.

First novelty: the function smart recap. Notes will be generated automatically by the AI ​​to retain the key points of each meeting. The feature will also generate suggested actions to take during meetings as you can see in the image above.

Meeting recordings will also be improved, with the addition of custom timelines that only the user will have access to. As of today, you can see when you joined or left a meeting, but many other markers are announced, such as when your name was mentioned during the video conference, or when a screen was shared. In the same spirit, Powerpoint Live has been optimized and now includes AI-powered chapters. This allows you to highlight the beginning and end of the different parts of a presentation.
