Microsoft forms app will now enhance the effectiveness of Teams and make it more interesting

Furthermore, if they want to allow multiple answers, they just have to click or tap the toggle next to multiple answers, and can also select whether they want to share results automatically after voting and/or keep responses anonymous, then select the Save option.

In group conversations, participants will see real-time poll results. Besides this, Microsoft recently announced the Game of Work app for users, allowing them to play games during a meeting. The games will be available at Microsoft IceBreakers, Wordament, Minesweeper, and Solitaire, and all these games can be played among 250 joiners in a meeting.

The companies will also collaborate to optimize Microsoft’s DeepSpeed deep learning optimization software.
