[[{“value”:”

Microsoft Build 2024, a major event for Redmond-based tech giant, dropped a bunch of news on Tuesday, including announcements about AI chatbot Copilot, new Microsoft Teams features, and more.

The event, which kicked off at noon eastern time, marked yet another sign of the direction tech is headed. Everything is centered on AI these days — Google even joked about it during their recent I/O event — and Microsoft is no exception.

Here’s everything announced at Build 2024, along with links and details to learn more about the headlines of the day.

1. Team Copilot

Team Copilot is a new AI feature that you may start seeing in your Microsoft Teams meetings. Microsoft boasts that Team Copilot is an AI co-worker of sorts that can drop in on your video calls. It can summarize the discussion and make sure each topics on the agenda have decent pacing time-wise. Plus, all participants can edit Team Copilot’s notes, adding or removing the outline as they see fit. Team Copilot can also make an appearance in chats, answering users’ questions and catching up latecomers on past discussions.

It’s also worth noting that Copilot has made a splash during the Surface event on Monday, which introduced two laptops: Surface Laptop 7 and Surface Pro 11. These devices have Copilot and AI at the forefront, including a new feature called “Recall” that tracks everything you do on your PC — and lets you retrieve it at any time via natural language with a scrollable timeline.

2. Microsoft Edge real-time translation for videos

Microsoft announced a new AI feature for its Edge browser: real-time translation for videos. It can dub and add subtitles to select videos. For example, if someone is hard of hearing, they can use this feature to caption videos that didn’t have captions initially. This is also useful for users who want to watch videos in a different language. So far, supported videos include content from YouTube, LinkedIn, and even Coursera.

3. New Microsoft Teams features

Microsoft also introduced a handful of new features for Microsoft Teams, the company’s Zoom competitor. This includes Intelligent Recap (AI-driven meeting notes) and the use of custom emojis that users can upload for themselves.
