Microsoft Teams: This new feature could help bring an end to another big business headache

Dynamics 365 Customer Support is getting a true omnichannel system, thanks to a voice channel built on Azure Communication Services.

The infrastructure behind Teams has stood up well to increased use during the pandemic: Microsoft was able to scale capacity by 60 times over seven weeks as use increased, and it’s now delivering more than five billion meeting minutes a day.

In fact, it’s so robust and available that Microsoft is now making it available to developers as Azure Communication Services, a voice, video, chat and SMS platform that developers can use via APIs. Microsoft started developing this before the COVID-19 lockdown in March, but the pandemic has added impetus to the development, which goes into public preview with an SDK at Ignite.
