Back in July, Microsoft announced Microsoft Teams display, a new category of all-in-one dedicated Teams devices that come with a touchscreen and Cortana for hands-free experience. The Lenovo ThinkSmart View is the first Microsoft Teams display and you can order it for $349 here at Microsoft Store.
The ThinkSmart View is designed for Microsoft Teams and features an 8-inch touch screen, full-range speakers, a camera, and microphones. It also pairs with the ThinkPad X1 ANC Bluetooth Headset and for downtime features a physical privacy switch. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 624 chipset, the Echo Show-like device is meant for individual spaces, from an office to a home office.
With natural language, users can ask Cortana to effortlessly join and present in meetings, dictate replies to a Teams chat, and more. These devices seamlessly integrate with your PC, providing easy access to Teams chat, meetings, calling, calendar, and files.
You can make requests like:
“What is on my calendar today?”
“Share this document with Megan”
“Join my next meeting”
“Add Joe to this meeting”
“Present the quarterly review deck”
