Picture this: You’re in the middle of an important video call with a client, confidently presenting your latest project updates.

Suddenly, a notification pops up from your significant other, not-so-subtly reminding you about the mess your child made during a morning tantrum. Or worse, a message from your gym highlighting your prolonged absence.

Embarrassing, right?

We all know the struggle of trying to maintain professionalism during video calls while dreading the potential for embarrassing pop-ups to steal the show. But Microsoft is stepping up to solve this issue. They’re reportedly working on a much-needed feature that could save us all from these cringeworthy moments.

Imagine being able to hide specific apps entirely during a Teams call. No more worrying about intrusive notifications disrupting your flow. This means you can say goodbye to awkward interruptions from messaging apps or reminders you’d prefer to keep private.

How does it work? According to reports, Microsoft’s new feature won’t just minimize apps to the taskbar like the current workaround. Instead, it will completely hide them from sight, sparing you from any unexpected surprises (and blushes).

And the best part? It’s not just about saving face. This feature could also help boost your device’s performance. By keeping those apps hidden, you free up valuable computing power and resources.

If you’ve ever found yourself frantically closing apps and browser windows to ensure a smooth video stream, this could be the end of that struggle. With the new feature, you can focus on what truly matters during your calls without worrying about technical hiccups or embarrassing distractions.

While we’re excited about the potential of this new feature, we’ll have to wait and see if it becomes a reality. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the official Microsoft 365 roadmap for any updates and will keep you informed.
