Microsoft has added several features to its team collaboration platform Teams, including integration with the company's Cortana voice assistant and inline translation of messages written in foreign languages.

Microsoft today is celebrating the one year anniversary of its Microsoft Teams app which is now being used by over 200,000 organizations in 181 markets. See more on these features below.

Unlike Slack, Teams unsurprisingly does not seek to dispense with corporate email, opting to integrate messaging with office apps (such as Outlook) as a collaborative tool.

Let us not forget why Microsoft chose to build out Teams, it was because of the success of Slack which makes you wonder if buying the competing software would have been a better move?

Microsoft Polishes Teams Story Adds host of new features, including direct routing to SIP trunks, and expanded hardware support.

Engine woes: Aviation watchdog grounds 11 Airbus planes of IndiGo, GoAir
In less than three weeks, there have been as many incidents of in-flight shut down of A320 neos fitted with one P&W 1100 engine. Pratt replaced the original seal because it was degrading faster than expected, reducing the planned service interval.

It has been exactly one year since Microsoft Teams first launched, and many organizations have since come on board with the chat-based collaboration tool.

First off is cloud recording, which will provide "one-click meeting recordings with automatic transcription and timecoding, enabling all team members the ability to read captions, search within the conversation, and playback all or part of the meeting". In the future, it will also include facial recognition, so remarks can be attributed to specific meeting attendees.

The Cortana integration is for Teams-enabled VoIP phone and conference room devices.

One of the other feature which Microsoft will be adding is the inline message translations which help users with different languages to communicate with one another with the help of translating posts in the channel and chats. Microsoft also intends to add enhanced mobile support that will let users share live video and other media from their handsets.

The new calling capabilities, which include consultative transfer (for getting an OK before transferring a call to somebody), call delegation, and federation, will be available in the second quarter, Wright said. This includes Surface Hub, the large-screen video collaboration device for huddle spaces and other small-to-medium meeting rooms.
