Microsoft Teams already has live transcripts thanks to AI

Microsoft Teams is improving its dynamics with a new feature powered by artificial intelligence.

Yes, live transcripts of meetings are already starting to be implemented in Teams with all the benefits that this offers to users. At the moment, this feature is only available in English.

Microsoft Teams is already beginning to implement live transcripts in scheduled meetings. In this first stage, it will only be available in English, but it already allows us to see a preview of its dynamics.

uses a meeting invitation, names of participants, attachments, etc. to improve accuracy and recognize meeting-specific jargon for each transcript automatically, without any human input. This means that no one at Microsoft sees the meeting content and templates are automatically deleted immediately after each meeting.

It is not an option that is enabled by default, so the administrator will need to configure it before starting the meeting. When this happens, each participant is advised that the transcription function is activated and is given the option not to be identified during the process.

And once the meeting starts, Teams automatically captures, and in near real time, what is said during the meeting while identifying the speaker at all times. This transcript will not only be available during the meeting, but will also be kept for any of the participants to refer to.

Participants will be able to find the transcript both in chat and in the event created in the Teams calendar for the meeting. They can take a look at it from Teams or download the file to their team.

An excellent option to allow us to catch up with the meeting if we are late, do not have good audio or have to leave the video conference earlier than expected.
