Microsoft is actively developing useful new features for Microsoft Teams to make it a better platform for virtual collaboration. According to Microsoft 365 roadmap page, the company is currently working on as many as 121 new features for Teams, all of them are expected to be rolled out to the users by the end of this year. While not all upcoming features will be useful for everyone, the addition of the text predictions feature in Teams is something pretty much everybody will appreciate.
According to the Microsoft 365 roadmap page, Microsoft is actively working on a text predictions feature for Teams mobile clients. Microsoft is using what the company calls "Assistive AI" technology to predict your answers. All of this sounds similar to the suggested replies feature in Outlook.
The new text predictions feature will provide you with possible answers and give you text suggestions as you type, helping you finish phrases in one tap. Microsoft recently added similar capabilities in Outlook for Android.
It's worth noting that the text predictions feature will be rolled out to the Teams Android client first, and there is no clarity as to when the feature will be available for the desktop and web clients. Luckily, the roadmap page does reveal that text predictions for Teams mobile will be available for Android users in April of this year.
We're expecting Microsoft to add the feature to the Microsoft Teams iOS client at a later date. Meanwhile, you can download Microsoft Teams on your Android and iOS devices by going to Google Play Store and App Store, respectively.
