Just recently, Microsoft made Teams Premium more widely available to users. Teams Premium is the new version of its popular collaboration program that is designed for enterprises that require more functionalities when conducting webinars and large online gatherings. Aside from new features like custom registration start and end times for webinars and a 1,000-people registration limit, Teams Premium is now also powered by OpenAI's GPT 3.5 technology.

For those not in the know, GPT, or Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a machine learning model trained using internet data to generate any type of text. It is the technology behind the wildly popular ChatGPT chatbot, which can answer questions in a conversational manner, and generate code and text.

According to Microsoft, the features in Teams Premium aims to make meetings "more intelligent, personalized, and protected." For instance, it can translate captions in real-time, help create meeting templates, and automatically generate meeting notes, recommended tasks, and personalized highlights.
