I’m really proud to share that Azure Communication Services, which I have been working on since July, was announced at Microsoft Ignite by CEO Satya Nadella!
What is Azure Communication Services (ACS)? You can find a lot of descriptions out there, but quoting the official ACS webpage, Azure Communication Services brings rich communication APIs to all your applications across any device, on any platform, using the same reliable and secure infrastructure that powers Microsoft Teams.
In a world that is fundamentally transformed by the pandemic, there is a great need for reliable communication. Meetings are now virtual. Conversations by the watercooler are gone. Networking has moved to video conferences. There is a new norm that is cast upon this world, and communication is truly at the foundation of this new norm. Although still new to this team I am so excited to have the opportunity to contribute to a modern communication service!
