The introduction of Microsoft Viva was huge this year.

4. The Potential of Microsoft Viva Connections on Mobile by Adam Levithan

This is the pain point that Viva Learning exists to solve.

1. 4 Microsoft Viva Features That Could Change How We Experience Work by John Peluso

Preview:

By making Microsoft Teams a personalized experience, the core function of Microsoft Viva is simple: Keep users engaged in a place where they increasingly spend more of their workdays with content and services tailored just for them.

In recent months, Teams has seen a surge (including more than 100 million new users during the pandemic). Viva, which is designed to be deployed as a set of Teams apps, could support a range of additional tasks without requiring employees to click away from the signature purple frame.
