Build a consistent experience for frontline workers with Microsoft Teams updates. Take a look at the latest updates for frontline workers in Microsoft Teams. The past year has revealed a gap that exists for essential workers in terms of equal access to technology. By proactively extending the Team's platform to them, you can avoid workers finding their own potentially risky solutions.

Microsoft Teams can run on either personal devices or shared devices, it's integrated with your back office, and it's secured by design. You can also configure it to meet the specific needs of your frontline workers, their managers, or IT. Everybody benefits, and it's a consistent experience. Daniel Hidalgo, Product Manager for Microsoft Teams, joins host Jeremy Chapman to share Teams updates for:

• Frontline workers- easy sign-in, and new capability called Walkie Talkie

• Managers- new ways to manage your Teams with My Staff portal.

• IT- new policy packages, Team templates to speed up configuration, as well as new options for managing shared devices in Endpoint Manager
