Microsoft Teams Together Mode Will Allow Just Two People Start A Meeting

A few months after the mode was released, it made its way to Skype, allowing friends and family to use it for video calls as well. Even so, it had a five-person minimum, which likely limited its use.

But it appears that the tech giant is looking to make it available even for calls with fewer attendees. People can now use the feature for video calls with as few as two participants, as first reported by The Verge, as long as they’re using the Developer Preview version of the Teams app.

Together Mode employs AI-powered segmentation to place all meeting participants in a single virtual space. Its purpose is to make people feel as if they are all sitting in the same room and to help them see the nonverbal cues of the other participants.

The NBA demonstrated the feature’s capabilities by simulating the atmosphere of a crowded arena without anyone physically present.
