Microsoft is working on multitasking panel for Microsoft Teams users on iPad. To the Microsoft 365 Roadmap page According to Microsoft, it’s working on a collapsible multitasking right panel to help users be more productive during a Teams meeting. The new multitasking panel will be a place to chat with people as well as an ongoing meeting. Faster list views will be another major benefit of having the new right-hand multitasking panel.
These new features will be rolling out to Teams users on iPad this month, according to the roadmap page. Alongside these changes, Microsoft also promises to provide better Teams optimization for iPad users.
The ability to chat during a Teams meeting is not new. This feature is already available for Teams desktop users. The chat window opens on the right side of the main screen on the desktop. While the chat window and multitasking panel are very similar, the latter seems to promise to offer more than just chat.
However, it should be noted that there may be a delay in the rollout of these changes this month.
