Microsoft Teams: Get ready for clearer sound on your meetings thanks to this audio upgrade

Important steps for customers to protect themselves from recent nation-state cyberattacks

Microsoft is showing off improvements to its audio codec called Satin that should help improve the clarity of audio on Teems meetings on crammed networks with high packet loss.

Microsoft brought the Satin audio codec to Teams last year, but its use has been limited to two-party calls.

Today, many people are getting the job done from home on networks that are probably being shared with the kids for video, home schooling, gaming and so on, so Teams meetings could greatly benefit from the AI-powered codec, too. Any bitrate savings on audio can be used to improve experiences on other workloads like video or content sharing, Microsoft said.
