What’s new for Microsoft Viva – April 2024

With the latest updates, Viva applications are now integrating support for Copilots, enhancing organizational adoption of Microsoft’s AI assistant. April marked a significant milestone as Viva applications expanded beyond Microsoft Teams, becoming accessible directly in the browser with dedicated URLs.

Employee experience is not a thing of the past, despite the buzz around Copilot. In fact, Microsoft Viva is constantly evolving to provide the best tools and solutions for your work and well-being.

Another big change that happened in February was the retirement of Viva Topics. This does not mean that Viva Topics was a bad product or that Microsoft is giving up on knowledge management. On the contrary, Microsoft is investing all the AI initiatives around Copilot.
