Currently, what is supported in this field is either the domain from DNS PTR record or /24 IP Subnet. Additionally, being able to specify a 'DKIM verified domain' will help serve scenarios where shared infrastructure provider services are used for sending emails. Since the DKIM domain is unique to each tenant and if it passes verification even when other authentication signals fail, if desired for legitimate business reasons, a spoofed message can still be allowed instead of being blocked.

SharePoint: SharePoint File Card for Government clouds

Description:
You can get quick insights on files before you even open them. When you see a file in OneDrive or SharePoint, point to the file, and then wait for the file card to appear. The file card tells you if a file is popular among your peers, how long it might take to read it, and even show the author key points. If you are working on the file with others, the file card will show you recent activities you haven't seen yet, a list of viewers and views, and links to places where you referenced the file in email, meetings, or Teams chats. The file card is only visible to people who have access to the file, so the information on the card is just as secure as your files. Also, what's shown on the file card is personalized to you. For example, the file card shows conversations you took part in, but doesn't show them to anyone who wasn't in that same conversation. The same is true of activity highlights; we'll show that you've been @mentioned, but we won't show that to others when they view the file card.

Argument assistance is a card that shows up when the user is writing a formula and accompanies the user during the arguments insert/edit. The Argument Assistance helps the user to be more efficient while writing formulas and reduces risk for errors, without needing to look for help in external resources. It includes descriptions of the formula and the different arguments, as well as an example. The relevant argument (according to caret’s position) will be highlighted for better orientation. The user can collapse the card and see only the top formula signature (like the tooltip today) in case he/she prefers not to hide much of the grid (we’ll save that preference).

Microsoft Teams: Detect Music Automatically (Education only)

Description:
The previously released ML-based noise suppression is now enabled by default for most of our customers. ML-based noise suppression considers any non-speech signal picked up by the microphone as noise which should be suppressed. To avoid suppressing music and to allow users to enable the new high-fidelity music mode, we have built an ML-based music detector which will inform the user whenever music is present through a notification. This will give the end user the choice whether music is indeed an unwanted background noise, such as when calling into a meeting from a coffee shop, or if music is a desired signal, such as when participating in a music lesson. This new feature is now available to Edu customers only. We will communicate when this is available to commercial and government customers.
