Network connectivity is facing limited access issues and Microsoft thus wants to enable a solution for it. The firm developed a platform where the team can use offline support with the massages. Team members can write messages in offline mode. These massages will be then sent when the system gains connectivity.
Windows and macOS already have a desktop client that can work without a network connection within the limited bandwidth.

This feature can help team members working away from the desktops for the whole day. The firm also confirms that it is working on the optimization of android team apps to work with lower bandwidth.
Features to compete with Zoom
Microsoft has launched major features for teams in September. These performance improvement features will surely beat Zoom in the video conferencing market. One of the major features is the Team Together Mode. This feature adds scenes in video conferencing enabling team colleagues to meet at various places like an auditorium, conference room, or coffee shop.
Microsoft is going to launch new feature breakdown rooms this month. This feature will allow people to form a smaller group of the team while doing a conference or meeting.
Another feature called rival zoom focused on the improvisation of teams using Android and iOS Smartphones. This feature will allow the user to see up to 49 participants in a call. Users have to enable the multiwindow feature to enjoy this new feature in the latest update.
Microsoft has added all the functions available in Zoom. The company integrated the Team feature in addition to these functions. Microsoft offers new features called Advanced Communication in the update. This feature helps massive IT services. We can expect mode Microsoft 365 integration in the coming time.
This team integration is absent in Zoom. A lot of Zoom users also face security threats while using the application. Zoom worked hard to improve these aspects but failed to provide a perfect solution for it.
If Microsoft can provide solid performance with its integrated team features, it has a huge chance of being successful. Microsoft can seriously beat Zoom with its secured high-performance features.
