Microsoft is preparing a new feature that can help (and a lot) the routine of those who work remotely, but live with an unstable internet. Teams, the giant’s corporate collaboration platform, will be able to open files shared by colleagues even when they are disconnected.
Once opened, files shared by you or colleagues could be viewed without an internet connection. The novelty was found in Microsoft’s official development schedule and, as usual, little describes how the feature will work when it kicks in.
The novelty is not only a solution for people with an unstable connection, but it should also help to view the shared content more quickly when connected, since it must be stored in the device’s memory. If it works like other apps, the Redmond Giant had to rely on Microsoft Teams’ cache memory or data to retrieve the viewed content.
Details such as the time these files will be stored, whether offline viewing will allow you to view pages not consulted the first time and the limit on the number of files that can be saved have not been revealed.
It is also unclear, which devices will receive the novelty. The ad cites Android as one of the destinations, so the Microsoft Teams app for mobile phones with the little robot system should have support for the tool at some point.
In addition, the viewing of offline files has not yet been made available to users, but it should happen sometime in 2021. When it is released, it is likely that Microsoft will detail the feature in the package notes and, considering its application on the next day, the company must also highlight you through a notification.
