Now the users of Microsoft Teams have the option to open third party apps during meetings and the development is to allow more interactive discussions. This feature is introduced for the first time ever and lets apps integrate into Teams meetings during video calls. The same functionality is also possible even before and after meetings.
Users can also receive and view notifications from third-party apps while on Microsoft Teams calls. You can browse content from third party apps, and the integration of apps access is a big development from Microsoft. The sidebar pops up with the relevant third party application during the meeting and can also be accessed before the host invites participants to a meeting.
Many applications including bots can come into action with live notifications in and before the Teams meetings. The integration can also appear as a button in the meeting controls bar. It was a screen sharing option that was available previously, on the Teams.
