Microsoft Launches a New ‘Audio Dock’ and Presentation Remote

Microsoft is debuting two new ‘Teams’-focused accessories for its virtual meeting app, delivering the ‘Microsoft Audio Dock’ and the ‘Microsoft Presenter Plus’ remote control.

The ‘Audio Dock’ is a pill-shaped speakerphone system that comes equipped with four different ports, including HDMI, USB-A, and two USB-Cs.

The audio device can be connected to up to two monitors, and also comes with a passthrough charger that supports up to 60W of power. Since it is designed for Microsoft Teams, consumers can use the integrated Teams button to join meetings and raise your hand.

The ‘Presenter Plus’ is a handheld remote control that allows consumers to join Teams meetings from wherever they are. This device is compatible with PowerPoint, Prezi, or Keynote for easy slideshows and presentations, making the ‘Presenter Plus’ ideal for business-oriented individuals who mainly communicate using online applications.

The remote also boasts a mute indicator light and the ability to raise or lower your hand in Teams meetings.

Microsoft did not reveal a launch date for the Audio Dock or Presenter Plus, nor did it provide any pricing information.
