Microsoft has added a new feature that is going to improve its search functionality better. Microsoft stated that the new section will autosuggest the most relevant results across people, chats, files, and other content stored or shared in the app. The new feature is still under development, but it is expected to roll out to users by the end of this month.
Microsoft Teams hits 250 million monthly active users, 80 million monthly active Teams Phone users. 250M is a massive jump from the 145M daily active users in the last quarter.
Currently, the autosuggest in search provides a few possible results by type, and users can apply filters to them for a more specific search. However, the Top Hits section is expected to bring another layer of intelligence to the existing search options. This will make it easier to find exactly what you’re searching for on the first try, therefore reducing your search time and boosting your productivity.
