The Microsoft team plans to add webinars as a feature to Teams. However, this new offering will only be available under a new subscription plan.
Microsoft Teams has a lot of features that cover different areas of our work or study. So it’s just a matter of combining some of the features to create different scenarios for video conferencing.
Following this line, Microsoft wants to go a step further by offering users the possibility to create and organize webinars, or webinars, from the Teams interface. But this new option will not be part of the current features but will be included under a subscription service: Teams Pro.
This new subscription service looks set to launch in mid-March, although there is not much information about it. The idea behind this new proposal is to expand the potential of Microsoft Teams by taking into account the needs of users during this pandemic period.
Webinars are one of the most used tools by those who want to promote their new ventures or as part of the marketing strategy. And of course, they are also part of team activities. So this new initiative could be of interest to users who have already opted for Teams as the center of their work activities.
We will see if the subscription model that Microsoft will suggest under this Teams Pro also appeals to users. Of course, webinars will not be the only feature offered under this plan, so we will have to wait to see what approach Microsoft plans to launch to make the offer attractive enough.
