Microsoft Designer tool, bringing AI-empowered creativity to Microsoft Teams users.

Delve into an exhilarating new world of AI-powered design with the arrival of Microsoft’s Designer tool on Teams! Embodying an essence akin to Canva, this ingenious tool is now accessible to all users of the free version of Teams, ushering in a novel dimension of digital creativity and personalization.

A whiff of fresh air for Windows 11 users, this preview version of Designer unlocks a realm of possibilities, from crafting compelling presentations and posters to creating eye-catching digital postcards. Ready to share on your favorite social media platforms, these designs are birthed from your text prompts or uploaded images, combined with the uncanny powers of OpenAI's DALL-E 2 AI.

The Designer tool adds a pinch of your personality into its creations, offering the ability to fine-tune with intuitive drop-downs and text boxes. This personalized artwork generating tool, which also graces Microsoft’s Edge browser and the web, debuted last October, wowing us with features like caption generation and animated visuals since April. The promise of advanced editing features yet to come only adds to the anticipation.

The game plan for Microsoft? Monetizing Designer via Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriptions. Though the exact pricing strategy remains under wraps, Microsoft ensures that some features of this AI marvel will continue to be available at no cost.

In other Teams updates, GroupMe users can now enjoy seamless connectivity by initiating Teams calls directly from group chats. Also, the much-loved communities feature of Teams, reminiscent of Discord-like groups, has expanded its compatibility to Windows 11, with plans to extend to macOS and Windows 10.

What's more, Teams is about to introduce a community discovery feature, enabling users to connect with like-minded individuals passionate about a multitude of topics, from gardening and parenting to technology and remote work.

To add to the excitement, Teams community members can now capture videos directly from their mobile devices, thanks to an upgraded capture experience complete with fresh filters and markup tools.

These new features come at a time when Teams’ popularity is skyrocketing, propelled by the surge in remote and hybrid work trends. Teams’ daily active users nearly doubled between 2021 and 2022, catapulting from 145 million to a whopping 270 million users.

The arrival of Microsoft's Designer tool on Teams adds a vibrant splash of creativity and personalization to your digital content, heralding an era where AI and human imagination intertwine seamlessly.
