Microsoft Teams displays are dedicated Teams devices with an ambient touchscreen and a hands-free mode using Cortana.

All your Teams activity and notices—including chat and channel messages, meetings, and calls—are visible at a glance, without switching away from your primary work screens. And your Teams collaboration options are always available, unless you lock your display or sign out.
