Microsoft May Soon Let Users Play Games on Teams

Microsoft Announces ‘Microsoft Security Experts’ To Achieve Security Against Threats

San Francisco: Tech giant Microsoft has started working on bringing casual games to its Microsoft Teams service. The software maker has started testing games like Solitaire, 4, and Wordament inside Microsoft Teams, citing sources, The Verge reported on Tuesday. Microsoft Now Uses New AI To Echo, Interruptions & Acoustics on Teams.

The casual games are designed to allow colleagues to play against each other during meetings. The report mentioned that while users will not be playing Halo or Forza inside Teams anytime soon, Microsoft is looking at games as another way to the meetings experience as businesses continue to balance the needs of hybrid and remote work.

Microsoft is only testing casual games internally from its Casual Games offering right now, and the company could choose not to roll this integration out to consumers and businesses.

Microsoft refused to comment on its testing of games inside Microsoft Teams. Alongside testing casual games in Teams, Microsoft also envisions virtual spaces inside Teams where colleagues can network and socialize with games. These virtual spaces are part of Microsoft’s broader metaverse plans, and the company has previously detailed its ambitions for 3D avatars and immersive meetings that are expected to arrive in Microsoft Teams this year.
