Microsoft Teams to get a new feature for those with limited or slow internet

Most of us are connected to the internet all day, but poor network connectivity can lead to spotty Microsoft Teams experience, especially on Windows which consumes more data than mobile devices. Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that it’s working on a new feature to help you to stay connected when your device is offline. With the offline mode in Microsoft Teams, you can now queue messages when your device is not connected to the internet.

In practice, this means that when playing a game at 120 Hz, the console will have to switch to 4:2:2 chroma subsampling, while Microsoft’s next-gen console is able to keep the
