June 2021 Newsletter – Week 2

We are continually adding new capabilities to the core Azure Virtual Desktop platform. Today we are also pleased to announce the public preview of new features that will help you onboard and better manage your Azure Virtual Desktop deployment.

As a security improvement, the device code flow has been updated to include an additional prompt, which validates that the user is signing into the app they expect.

This feature update of Live transcription with speaker attribution in Microsoft Teams meetings is a written record of the conversations available during and after the meeting and will provide another way to both follow and review meeting conversations. This feature release will roll out on Teams desktop.

We have been working to meet the extensibility requirements of our customers, who are using the information around our detections within their custom tools. As part of this update, we are enhancing the information around Email Detections within Office 365 Management API.

The web player for audio & video files that are stored in OneDrive and SharePoint (including when those files are embedded in Teams, Yammer, and SharePoint web parts) is being updated with a new user look and feel and adheres to greater levels of accessibility for keyboard navigation and screen readers.

Delighting our customers with faster, smoother, and frictionless experiences in Excel for the web is an uncompromised goal across the Excel team. With this in mind, we recently added support to open and edit workbooks with ActiveX, Form controls and other legacy art objects in Excel web.

With this new feature, when you create a team in Microsoft Teams, a SharePoint team site will automatically get created in tandem and you are also able to connect any existing SharePoint team site to a new team in Microsoft Teams. These are called Microsoft Teams connected team sites.

You can now install the web version as a Progressive Web App (PWA) in Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Firefox or other browser that supports Progressive Web Apps (with the exception of Safari):
