Welcome to Recast’s Endpoint Management Recap, November 2023 – by Daniel Engberg

Hello everyone!

It’s November. The dark and cold are upon us, and soon it will be Christmas. I like this time of the year!

This month has brought many developments, particularly with AI’s integration into all of Microsoft’s products. Microsoft’s flagship product for this is Copilot, which was heavily featured during Microsoft Ignite.

In this edition, I’ve compiled essential resources and links from Microsoft Ignite. Expect to discover how Copilot is transforming our experience with Microsoft products.

As usual, the recap covers all other new content from Microsoft and the community.

The next recap will also be the last of the year, giving us some good indications of what we have in store for 2024.

See you in December!

IGNITE 2023 

This year’s edition of Microsoft Ignite focused primarily on AI, and more specifically, Copilot. 

I’ve gathered all the links I could find, both from Microsoft and the community. 

I would start with Microsoft Ignite 2023 Book of News, which covers all the news from the event! Then dig deeper below.

Microsoft Product Announcement

This month, we saw the much-anticipated release of Windows 11 23H2, bringing a host of exciting updates and features: 

  • Copilot in Windows Preview: Copilot in Windows is rolling out in preview, starting in select global markets, such as North America, Asia, and South America, with plans to expand to more markets over time. 
  • SMS Integration: Windows 11 now allows you to send and receive SMS messages within Microsoft Teams and link your Android Phone using Link to Windows, enabling SMS access and meeting link sharing via your phone number. 
  • New People Experience: A new People experience makes finding people relevant to you easy on Teams. Because Teams syncs with your Outlook and Skype contacts, you can connect to them whenever you want. 
  • Application Management: There are changes in managing applications, where system components are labeled “system” under All apps on the Start menu, and their management page has been moved to Settings > System > System Components. 

Here is some official Microsoft documentation around the update:
