This post will show the new features released in Microsoft Teams August September Update. Microsoft release frequent updates for teams. Here, you will get an overview of Teams monthly release updates in August and September.
The teams monthly updates and enhancements can make your meetings more collaborative. You will also get new admin features for Microsoft Teams with updates.
Microsoft Teams can be installed on PCs, Macs, and mobile devices, and can also be accessed via a web browser. You should install the latest Microsoft Teams update on your device to get the latest features.
Teams don’t allow admins to deploy updates through any delivery mechanism. Teams web app updates are typically released on the 4th Monday of each month. Teams desktop client updates are released monthly after rigorous internal testing and validation.
The desktop client updates itself automatically. Teams check for updates every few hours behind the scenes, download them, and then wait for the computer to be idle before silently installing the update. If a critical update is required, Teams will bypass this schedule and release the update as soon as it’s available.
