What's new in Microsoft365 in 2022?

Microsoft 365 is undergoing some changes that're set to be released throughout 2022. Introducing new features, functionality and app integrations. 

January-February 2022 

  • Browsing by people and meetings  Browse for team members or specific meetings to track down files that have been shared with you on Office.com  particularly useful when you forget a file name!  
     
  • Viewing infinite list of recent content – Your recently used file list is great for quick and easy access but impractical when working on multiple documents each day, which is why Microsoft have updated this feature to an infinitely-long list to ensure you can access all your recent files quickly and easily.  
     
  • Updates to Office.com and Windows Office App – Key updates are being made across Office.com and the Office app for Windows to improve usability and functionality. 
  • Teams castings for Teams Rooms on Windows – For quick meetings that do not require prior planning. Members can now join meetings using Teams casting, which wirelessly connects people to a Teams Room running on Windows. This allows users to display content from their computers and mobile phones while also allowing them to broadcast their screens for live viewing.  

 

March 2022 

  • SharePoint tile in M365 to direct to new stream app – SharePoint admins can now configure the Stream tile in the M365 app launcher to direct it to either the Stream (Classic) app or the new Stream App in Office.com. 
     
  • Idle sessions timeout in M365 apps – The idle sessions feature allows admin users to configure specific tenant-wide rules based on which users are normally automatically signed out after a period of inactivity on any of the Microsoft 365 web apps. This feature is an improved version and is set to replace the current idle time settings available in Outlook Web App (OWA) and SharePoint Online (SPO).
