Together mode

Unlike all the services from GoTo Meeting, Webex, Zoom etc, Microsoft has developed a feature that was released in 2020 called Together Mode. This allows you to see all the participants of a meeting as if you are presenting in one room (like a school, lecture, auditorium and so forth). This allows you to take away distractions like room furniture, background pictures and so on.

We are creating a video about together mode so this will be added when it's online.
