Microsoft News teams up with ModuleQ for Teams

More people are working from home than ever before, and with that has come an accelerated reliance on video conferencing: In March, Microsoft Teams added 12 million users in a 7-day period and even hit a daily record of 2.7 billion meeting minutes in one day.

Businesses need to ensure that employees can access timely content crucial to making effective decisions. To deliver the news where people are, Microsoft News has partnered with ModuleQ, a personal data fusion AI company, to deliver news from the world’s 4,500 most popular publishers.

As part of the Microsoft 365 suite, Teams unifies workplace collaboration and communications within a single platform. The ModuleQ People-Facing AI app gathers news, subscription feeds, and corporate documents from the enterprise ecosystem to deliver relevant business intelligence.

Available to all enterprise users, the feature can be added by simply click the “+” button in the Team’s navigation menu to bring up the Add a Tab window and select “More apps.”

Type “ModuleQ” in the search bar and then click “Add.”

Users may establish their own profiles, interests, and settings. Additionally, enterprise organizations can establish multiple security settings.

As millions adapt to working and learning remotely, Microsoft News is committed to delivering the news in ways that are innovative, accessible and easy.
