There's a new release of Microsoft 365 Apps out right now in the form of version 2205 (build 15225.20204). This update is present in the Current Channel and it's available for Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise, Microsoft 365 Apps for business, and the subscription versions of the Project and Visio desktop apps.

Version 2205 packs features updates for two pieces of Microsoft software, namely Outlook and Teams. For the former, this release includes a more natural sounding Read Aloud options.
