Microsoft to Host Hybrid Work Event on June 17

Posted on June 14, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft 365 with 6 Comments

Microsoft revealed today that it will be hosting a hybrid work virtual event this Thursday, June 17 ahead of its Windows event.

“Check back at 6 a.m. PT on Thursday, June 17, to see what’s next for the future of hybrid work,” the Microsoft website notes of the event. And … that’s about it. There’s no other information.

That said, I knew this event was coming because Mary Jo mentioned it on Windows Weekly. And we had discovered previously that Microsoft was planning Windows, gaming, and security events for the first half of the year. The gaming event just happened, and the Windows event, of course, is scheduled for next week.

I guess we’ll see what it’s all about soon enough.

    Does your company ever use any of these fancy Teams features for meetings?

    very cryptic

    The pandemic has developed a new sense of appreciation for the cloud collaboration tools Microsoft offers.

    if they are willing to make improvements I am willing to listen.

    I love to have multi-channel voice so you can talk over someone. Which I know doesn’t sound like a good thing but the half duplex voice communication channel hides some affirmation cues and when things get heated you loose information when two passionate individuals start speaking at the same time. It would make the experience more lifelike.

    I hope they are going to add more features to Teams!!!! /s

    Seriously I think everyone would stand up and applaud if they just said "We have listened to your feedback and are working to make the Teams experience even better. We are going to be releasing a new, OS optimized Teams client this year that is 50% faster at start-up and 65% less resource-intensive, and a new Fluent UI that is enjoyable and easy to use."

    Can we JUST have this????
