Our monthly round-up of what’s new and updated across Office 365 and Microsoft 365.
This month Microsoft have made further improvements to Microsoft Teams, including upping the number of participants in calls from 250 to 300. There’s improved information security for those with Microsoft 365 E5 licences, thanks to sensitivity labels.
We look at the new automated daily briefing email for Exchange Online users, and SharePoint Online gains multilingual capabilities for Communication Sites.
As ever, our YouTube update video above gives you the facts in a few minutes – or you can read the full blog posts linked below to get the full picture.

Good communication is essential for any organisation, but it’s even more important where staff speak several languages.
Microsoft has now launched multilingual capabilities for Communication Sites in SharePoint Online to let you create flexible sites where staff can collaborating in multiple languages.
The features, rolled out over the last month, let you have multiple translations of each page in your Communications Site. This can be enabled under Language Settings in your site’s settings. You can add multiple languages, and assign a translator for each one.
When a page is published or changed, the assigned translator receives an email notifying them of the need to create or update a translated version in their language.
Once a translated page is published, the option to switch to that language will appear in a drop-down menu at the top right of the page.
It’s also possible to translate the site name, navigation and footer – once a page is published in a new language, the translator can simply alter them within SharePoint’s normal settings, and the translated elements will be associated with that language.
We’re now working on integrating this exciting feature into our out-of-the-box Kira intranet for SharePoint Online.
A new daily briefing email will start dropping into Microsoft 365 users’ Outlook inboxes from this month.
Microsoft are releasing a new feature for Office 365 users called the Briefing. This is an email which automatically gets sent at the start of each workday, giving a personalised view of the day ahead.
With insights based on the user’s own email and calendar, tasks and documents, the Briefing helps you prepare for meetings, keep commitments with tasks and actions, and block out focus time for deep work.
The Briefing is enabled by default for all users with Exchange Online, but users can unsubscribe if they don’t want to continue receiving it. Administrators can also disable the feature across their organisation.
The Briefing will be released in June 2020, and the first release will be made available to Microsoft 365 Enterprise users with Exchange Online mailboxes in English. More information is available on the Microsoft website.
