New touch and collaboration experiences will include 4K display support to further enhance your meeting experience on large screen devices and the ability to control the room system from both the Front of Room touch display and the touch console for convenience; to get this experience, the“Enable touch controls”setting on the device must be enabled. You will also be able to quickly start collaborating outside of a Teams meeting with the new, one-touch Whiteboard icon on the home screen. Tapping on this will launch the Microsoft Whiteboard app locally, and it will also allow you to start an ad-hoc meeting with your local whiteboard, enabling you to seamlessly switch from local to online collaboration. The“Allow initiate Whiteboard”setting on the device must be enabled to get this experience. When joining from a Teams Rooms device, you’ll start to see incoming chat messages to increase meeting inclusiveness. As a remote meeting participant, you’ll be able to add the PTZ Camera Controls app and control the zoom and orientation of a Teams Rooms camera directly from your desktop during a meeting; to get this experience, the Far end camera control policy must be enabled on the resource accounts.
