Microsoft will add in your corporate messenger Teams feature “The radio» (Walkie Talkie), told in the company. Users will be able to test it in the first half of 2020.
The function will work using Wi-Fi or mobile Internet on smartphones and tablets. Unlike similar devices, users will not need to worry about interference or signal interception, the company noted. The function is primarily intended for line employees, such as sellers, notes The Verge.
Apple has a similar feature – the company has added a Walkie-Talkie to exchange voice messages between users in Apple Watch.
Microsoft launched Teams in 2017. In November 2019, the Teams audience exceeded 20 million active users per day. This is more than the competing Slack – in October, the company announced that 12 million people use the service daily.
