Dell decided to integrate a Microsoft Teams button in its new monitors! The display manufacturer is expected to launch three models in February.
All of these monitors are claimed to be the world's first Microsoft Teams certified video conferencing monitors. The software giant provider started to certify webcams, displays, and headsets in 2020.
The three displays, which are expected to arrive next month, will offer quick access to Microsoft Teams. The additional feature will make it easier for users to access the Microsoft Teams app and receive video calls.
New Dell monitor's specs
According to The Verge's latest report, the upcoming displays will also have hands-free commands, which will be supported through the built-in microphone and Cortana. Dell's innovation is currently the first technology that features a Microsoft Teams button on a monitor.
However, the headset manufacturers have been quick to integrate buttons that support Microsoft's communications app. In 2020, the existing and new headphones got deeper integration with Microsoft Teams.
This took place during the rising of the app's usage at the start of the pandemic. Aside from the surprise button, Dell also added useful specs that are designed for an era where video calling and remote work are new trends.
Each of the three upcoming monitors will have a 5-megapixels pop-up infrared camera. This will support facial recognition with Windows Hello. The display manufacturer also bundles a noise-canceling microphone, as well as dual 5-watt integrated speakers.
Dell also added a built-in mode, which will reduce blue light emissions. This feature will really be helpful since previous reports confirmed that blue light emissions have negative effects on people's health status.
The company will soon launch a 27-inch (QHD) model for $719.99, a curved 34-inch (WQHD) variant for $1,149.99, and a 24-inch (FHD) version for $519.99. They are all expected to be released on Feb. 16.
