Microsoft Teams will expand the suggested replies feature

The Redmond giant continues to work to improve Microsoft Teams, and one of the most important novelties that it has just confirmed is the expansion of a very interesting function, the suggested answers. As many of our readers will already know, Microsoft Teams has become one of the most used collaborative work tools internationally, so it is perfectly understandable that Microsoft is constantly working on improvements to keep it at the top.

Suggested replies have been available in other Microsoft applications for some time, such as Outlook, but the implementation that had been done in Microsoft Teams was quite limited. According to the Microsoft 365 roadmap, and as long as everything goes according to plan, September will be the month in which the implementation of this function at a general levelwhich means that all Microsoft Teams users will be able to enjoy it.

For those who are not clear about what we mean when we talk about suggested answers, I remind you that it is a feature that allows generate, thanks to the use of artificial intelligence, rapid responses that we could apply when we receive a message. This speeds up and simplifies the response process and can be of great help when dealing with a large number of messages. However, we can also reject those suggested answers if they do not fit with what we want to say and directly elaborate our own answer.

With this in mind, it is clear that the suggested answers are not the same as the predictive text, since this last function only shows us recommendations when we have started writing, although both have something in common, and that is that they can help us save a lot time, and therefore They can be very useful at certain times.and in certain situations.
