Microsoft Teams Premium: AI Arrives In Video Calls

Microsoft brings ChatGPT artificial intelligence into Team Premium and introduces many powerful business-friendly features.

The success of ChatGPT is unstoppable, and, as we have already told you, it is even scaring Google. The technology based on artificial intelligence is the subject of a multi-billion dollar investment by Microsoft (about 10 billion dollars) in OpenAI, the startup that developed it. This investment has already borne the first fruits: Microsoft has announced that ChatGPT 3.5 will soon be integrated into Teams Premium, the paid version of the video call and innovative working platform launched in October 2022.

What’s New In Teams Premium

Among the new functions implemented in Teams Premium, made possible by the integration with ChatGPT, there will be an intelligent summary of the video call. Auto-generated notes, highlights, and recommended activities will summarize all the most important information discussed in the virtual meeting. Plus, intelligent summarizing turns speech into text, broken into chapters, and integrated with PowerPoint Live, so you can instantly create effective presentations.

The recorded video of the meeting will be supplemented by timeline markers which will indicate only to the person requesting their periods of presence and absence from the summit. Also, in a few months, features will be added that will show each speaker’s name and the periods in which he spoke.

With live captions, it will also be possible to integrate live translations, based on artificial intelligence, from 40 languages: meeting participants will read the speeches in their language, and the others will be able to read the translation generated by ChatGPT.

Furthermore, with Teams Premium, it will be possible to create customized meetings by choosing between an engagement with customers, a more accessible discussion between colleagues (brainstorming), and a help desk-type call.

Security has been improved with watermarking, discouraging leaks by marking screen shares and presenting on participant videos to present and display sensitive information confidently. In practice, if the meeting is between four people, the watermark has been set. Each of the four participants will have a flow with his stamp. If he shares it with others, it will be immediately apparent that he was the one who disclosed the confidential information.
Furthermore, end-to-end encryption has been introduced to the meeting alongside the limitation of who can record. In contrast, reminders and data exchanged during calls or Teams sessions are always protected using standard encryption.

Teams Premium With ChatGPT: How Much Does It Cost

The Teams Premium subscription will be available worldwide from mid-February. It will be priced at $10 per user per month in the US. However, having multiple accounts is optional, but one is enough to activate all these functions. Furthermore, a promotion is currently underway that provides a 30% discount for which it will be possible to pay only 7 dollars a month for an account.

However, the Italian page of Microsoft has yet to announce the price for our country. There is a free 30-day test phase, after which the account is suspended if you do not switch to the subscription.
