“You’re giving me the ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ routine? I invented ‘it’s not you, it’s me.’ Nobody tells me it’s them not me; if it’s anybody, it’s me.”

Say Goodbye to Embarrassing Pop-Ups During Video Calls with Microsoft's New Feature

Imagine this: you're in the middle of an important video call with a client, confidently presenting your latest project updates. Suddenly, a notification pops up from your significant other, reminding you about the chaos your child caused this morning. Or worse, a message from your gym about your long absence.

Embarrassing, right?

We've all faced the struggle of maintaining professionalism during video calls while dreading those embarrassing pop-ups. Fortunately, Microsoft is working on a feature that could save us all from these awkward moments.

Picture this: 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 no more awkward interruptions from messaging apps or private reminders you'd rather keep to yourself.

How does it work? Reports suggest that Microsoft's new feature won't just minimize apps to the taskbar like current workarounds. Instead, it will completely hide them from view, protecting you from any unexpected surprises (and blushes).

And the best part? It's not just about avoiding embarrassment. This feature could also enhance 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 solution you've been waiting for. With this 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 keeping a close eye on the official Microsoft 365 roadmap for any updates and will keep you informed.

In the meantime, if you need help making your business's video calls run more smoothly, get in touch. We're here to help you stay professional and distraction-free.

Until next time, keep fit and have fun!

(TYYV) The Yada Yada Version:

Microsoft is developing a feature for Teams calls that hides specific apps and yada yada yada it will prevent embarrassing notifications and improve device performance.
