Microsoft Teams search UI

Like Windows Search and File Explorer, Microsoft Teams comes with its own dedicated search engine to help you discover messages, attachments, and other items you might be looking for. The search bar in Microsoft Teams is one of the core functions of the desktop app and Microsoft is now working on a new update to deliver better results.

Microsoft will soon enhance the search results in Microsoft Teams with more relevant results and AI integration. Teams desktop app will use a new AI-powered relevance system to help you find the most engaging content in Teams and Microsoft 365 products with just one tap.

This update was originally supposed to go live in December, but a new roadmap update suggests that it has been pushed back to June of 2021.

Teams search experience

The improved search results page will also help users find more relevant content with context for each item. In addition, Microsoft will group each item by messages, people, and file, so you can easily find the items you might be looking for.

Video filters

With Microsoft Teams calls, your computer’s main camera displays your surroundings and Microsoft also allows you to add spice to your appearance and backgrounds with built-in custom backgrounds support.

Last month, Microsoft started rolling out the new meeting experience to some users. In addition, Teams also received support for a large gallery, together mode, new background scenes and other features to improve the overall experience.

Microsoft is now testing a variety of filters that will add effects to your face and background. A few filters will even improve the lighting in your room and transform your video meetings.

The company will begin rolling out the new video filters feature for the Teams desktop app early next year.
