Dell’s new monitors have a built-in Microsoft Teams button

Dell will soon be launching a new line of monitors that come with a built-in Microsoft Teams button and Windows Hello facial recognition.

The monitors will hit the market as early as next month.

According to Dell, this is the world’s first ever line of video conferencing monitors certified for Microsoft Teams.

The idea is to produce a computer monitor that offers quick access to the video conferencing service.

At the press of a button, the user gets taken to the app and has the ability to initiate video calls within seconds.

In addition, the monitor offers hands-free command support through Cortana and the built-in microphone.

This type of monitor is indeed the first of its kind, despite the fact that numerous headset manufacturers have already started adding similar kinds of quick-launch buttons to their gear.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has caused a surge in demand for video conferencing solutions and Microsoft Teams has emerged as one of the users’ favourite choices.

Dell will be launching three new monitor models with a myriad of features and specs designed for an era in which remote work is the new normal.

For example, each one of the new models comes with a 5-megapixel pop-up infrared camera with Windows Hello facial recognition.

They also come with noise-cancelling microphones and dual 5-watt integrated speakers.

There is also a built-in mode that reduces blue light emissions.

The official launch date for all three monitors is 16th February.

In other news, hospitals in the UK and the US are going through a barrage of cyber-attacks.

According to Check Point, cybercriminals have chosen such a busy time as they believe that hospitals are more likely to cave in at this point and meet their ransom demands.

Apart from ransomware attacks, the attacks also include remote code execution, botnet takeovers and DDoS attacks.
