Say Goodbye to Video Call Pop-Ups

Picture this: You’re on an important video call with a client, confidently presenting your latest project updates. Everything is going smoothly until, suddenly, a notification pops up on your screen. It’s from your significant other, reminding you (not so discreetly) about the damage your child did during their temper tantrum this morning. Or worse, a message from your gym reminding you of your long absence. 

Embarrassing, right? 

We’ve all been there, trying to keep our cool and maintain professionalism during video calls while dreading those unexpected pop-ups. But good news! Microsoft is reportedly working on a new feature that could save us all from these cringeworthy moments. 

Imagine this: being able to completely hide specific apps while you’re on a Teams call. No more worrying about intrusive notifications disrupting your flow. This means you can say goodbye to awkward interruptions from messaging apps or reminders that you’d rather keep private. 

So, how does it work? According to reports, Microsoft’s new feature goes beyond simply minimizing apps to the taskbar. Instead, it will completely hide them from view, protecting you from any unexpected surprises (and blushes). 

And the best part? This feature isn’t just about saving face. It could also help boost your device’s performance. By keeping those apps running quietly in the background, you free up valuable computing power and resources. 

If you’ve ever found yourself frantically closing apps and browser windows before a video call, this could be the solution you’ve been waiting for. With this new feature, you can focus on what truly matters during your calls, without worrying about technical hiccups or embarrassing distractions. 

While we’re eagerly awaiting the official release of this feature, we’ll be keeping a close eye on the Microsoft 365 roadmap for updates. And as always, we’ll keep you informed. 

In the meantime, if we can help make your business’s video calls run more smoothly, feel free to get in touch.
