Speaking of fewer distractions and more focus, how about being able to filter out background noise from your meeting. This could be your children squabbling, your dog barking at the Amazon delivery person, or even an aggressively loud keyboard all filtered out without having to mute someone on a call. Microsoft Teams, with the use of AI, can decipher the difference between your voice and any other noise that is happening during a meeting and filter out the unnecessary noise. This allows for fewer distractions and, again, more focus!
