Microsoft has recently announced that its Teams AI capabilities will be powered by OpenAI's GPT-3.5 natural language model, following the extension of its multi-billion dollar partnership with OpenAI.

Microsoft Teams has introduced Teams Premium, a new level of service now available to customers, featuring AI capabilities powered by OpenAI's GPT-3.5 artificial intelligence engine. The new tier will initially be priced at $7 per user per month until June, after which the price will increase to $10. The majority of its new features were unveiled at Microsoft's Ignite event in October 2022, and the use of OpenAI's GPT-3.5 was recently announced as the tier became widely available.

Teams Premium will enhance meeting experiences through the use of OpenAI's large language models, making them more intelligent, personalized, and secure for all types of meetings. This was stated in a blog post by Nicole Herskowitz, VP of Microsoft Teams.

OpenAI's GPT-3.5 will be utilized to enhance the Microsoft Teams meeting experience. The AI will chapter recordings, generate titles and descriptions, add personalized timeline markers, highlight mentions and screen shares. Microsoft has been a strong backer of OpenAI, investing $1 billion in the company in 2019 and becoming the first to license GPT for use in its own products. GPT-3.5 is the latest iteration of the language model that uses deep learning for natural language processing.

Recently, Microsoft announced a multi-billion dollar, multi-year investment in OpenAI to drive AI advancements. OpenAI has also launched a $20 monthly Chat GPTPlus subscription plan, offering priority access to the chatbot.

The premium version of Microsoft Teams will also offer advanced security features such as watermarked meetings, end-to-end encryption for large meetings, and sensitivity labels for virtual meetings to prevent copying and pasting. Live translation for captions from 40 languages will be available, and webinar hosts will have access to advanced options such as a waitlist and manual approval, virtual greenrooms, and control over what attendees see.
