Together Mode in Microsoft Teams is a simple option dedicated to smaller gatherings. It gives you the impression of a large gallery view, showing all the meeting attendees sitting together in a virtual auditorium.
How Together Mode in Microsoft Teams works?
With Microsoft Teams Artificial Intelligence tools in action, the filter slices out the portion of your face, creating an avatar. This face cut-out is then pasted in the virtual background of your team’s view. The avatars then interact with other participants and carry out actions like high-fives, shoulder taps or other celebratory gestures.
