Legal professionals juggle numerous meetings on a daily basis, making efficient documentation crucial. With AI-powered meeting recaps, available within the ‘Recap tab’ in the Teams calendar and meeting chat, users gain automatic meeting notes, suggested tasks, and personalised highlights. This feature ensures that even if you miss a meeting, you can quickly access vital information, streamlining internal discussions and client meetings.

For organisations hosting large-scale events or town halls, Microsoft eCDN (Enterprise Content Delivery Network) offers secure, high-quality streaming to up to 20,000 attendees. This feature ensures smooth and uninterrupted broadcasting of organisation-wide meetings, trainings, and all-hands events within Teams Live Events.
