Microsoft is on a spree to load its Microsoft Teams with new features. The latest to add to the long list of features already available is the capability to create pools on Microsoft Forms app right within the particular Teams meeting or chat.
Microsoft Teams Adds Support For Polls
Redmond-based tech juggernaut Microsoft has added a new feature onboard Teams. It now lets users create polls using Microsoft Forms app without ever leaving a Teams meeting or chat.
All you have to do is go to the Teams channel or chat and go to the bottom of the screen where you need to click on ‘Forms’. Next up, add questions and answers and that’s pretty much it. You can allow recipients to select multiple answers by toggling the ‘Multiple Answers’ check mark right after you create a form and there you have it.
The feature lets you either share the results of the polls automatically with others or keeps it anonymous so that you can use it for other purposes. Finally, tap on the ‘Save’ button, previous it, and hit ‘Send’ and you are ready to get the poll out to the users. You can edit the poll in case something comes up.
If you have been following Microsoft news, you would remember that it was back in September when the feature made headlines although it was early to comment at that time. With the release of the Forms app, you can get on it, add your poll and ask recipients to respond.
Just a couple of days ago, Microsoft added an Intelligent Translation feature for chats. The feature uses AI to automatically translate foreign languages into user’s preference languages based on the cues it gathers from existing chats and contacts.
