Launching a Video Chat App for Microsoft Teams

Yesterday, we announced our release of our new video chat solution for Microsoft Teams. We’re excited to be enabling more ways for easy video creation and sharing as part of group chats.

The new application empowers Kaltura customers to actively use video for communication and collaboration in Teams. Customers now have another option to easily record, capture their screen, upload and share videos. They can even present and watch live webcasts. These videos display beautifully on any device, anywhere, all within the Teams environment.

Kaltura Video in the Teams Environment

By integrating Kaltura video into Teams, organizations give Teams users another way to make video a major component of their collaboration. Video chat messages create a more personal connection. Company webcasts are watchable within the same environment as the rest of business interactions. Video galleries showcase content to create a sense of teamwork and ownership that boost morale and employee engagement. This makes video content shared by users accessible, trackable, and discoverable.

“This new video chat application compliments our broad video communications suite of solutions that includes video emails, large scale live video webcasts, and now video chat messages, that are easy to use and deploy either as stand-alone products, or integrated within existing communication systems and workflows,” said Dr. Michal Tsur, Kaltura Co-founder, President & General Manager – Enterprise & Learning.

Tsur continued: “We are all used to easily sharing visual video content in our personal chats, and now we make it just as easy to use Kaltura video as part of online chats and team collaboration at work. We are excited to bring our video tools into the Microsoft Teams ecosystem.”

Mike Ammerlaan, director, Microsoft Office 365 Ecosystem, Microsoft Corp. said, “Integrating Kaltura’s video capabilities into the Microsoft Teams environment gives our customers another option to add powerful video tools to their existing workflows. We’re pleased to offer our Teams customers this new option to make their Teams platform even more effective.”
