Say goodbye to video call pop-ups

Say Goodbye to Inopportune Pop-Ups During Video Calls with Microsoft’s New Feature

Imagine this: you’re on an important video call with a client, confidently presenting your latest project updates

 

Suddenly, a notification pops up on your screen from your significant other, not so discreetly reminding you about the damage your child caused during their temper tantrum this morning. Or worse, a message from your gym reminding you of your prolonged absence.

Embarrassing, right?

We all know the struggle of maintaining professionalism during video calls while secretly fearing that embarrassing pop-ups might steal the show. But Microsoft is addressing this issue. They’re reportedly developing a much-needed feature that could save us all from these cringe-worthy moments.

Imagine being able to hide specific apps entirely while you’re on a Teams call. No more worrying about intrusive notifications interrupting your presentation. This means you can say goodbye to awkward interruptions from messaging apps or reminders you’d rather keep private.

How does it work? According to reports, Microsoft’s new feature won’t just minimize apps to the taskbar like the current workaround. Instead, it will completely hide them from sight, sparing you from any unexpected surprises (and blushes).

And the best part? It’s not just about saving face. This feature could also help boost your device’s performance. By keeping those apps in the background, you free up valuable computing power and resources.

If you’ve ever found yourself frantically closing apps and browser windows to ensure a smooth video stream, this could be the end of that struggle. With the new feature, you can focus on what truly matters during your calls without worrying about technical hiccups or embarrassing distractions.

While we’re excited about the potential of this new feature, we’ll have to wait and see if it becomes a reality. We’ll be closely monitoring the official Microsoft 365 roadmap for any updates and will keep you informed.

In the meantime, if we can help make your business’s video calls run more smoothly, get in touch.
