You can now track your mentions on Teams. If you suspect that your coworkers have been talking about you behind your back, Teams can help. The new update’s tool could be able to permanently fix a key issue.
Soon, some users of the well-liked video conferencing service will be able to track when, by whom, and in what context their names were spoken during a Microsoft Teams conference.
The updated version of Microsoft Stream aims to provide a more straightforward method to interact with your video conversations and meetings. And it will also let users jump right to the crucial part of the session.

Track your mentions on Teams
The new Timeline markers feature indicates in its entry on the official Microsoft 365 roadmap that it seeks to assist users in identifying precise instances of their name during a call.
Users will have a clear visual representation of the new markers (to denote a mention). This is because they will show as icons above the video timeline. Additionally, the markers are customized so that only you can see the times that your name was referenced.
However, the tool won’t initially be accessible to all Microsoft Teams users. Only customers who have signed up for the Microsoft Teams Premium preview will currently be able to access it. At least, according to the company.
This does imply that the function is now only being used as a trial and that a larger audience may soon get access to it. We won’t have to wait long to use the functionality. The first build is expected to be released in February 2023.
Microsoft Teams Premium, which is now available, offers a number of improved capabilities. It also offers more personalization and customization possibilities.
Companies may use the platform to enhance their presence in meetings by adding their own branding, unique backgrounds, and Together Mode sceneries. Users will be able to select from a variety of meeting kinds that IT staff will be able to customize. Making it simpler for users to set them up and get the proper settings in place more quickly.
Other new capabilities include “Intelligent recap.” This makes meetings more inclusive by using AI to transcribe sessions and even translate them into 40 different languages in real-time. The AI may also annotate recorded sessions with chapters and labels for quick playback of pertinent segments.
