This allows you to automate tasks (even if there's no API, and all you can use is a Legacy application or Legacy experience). • Check out improved experiences of Power Virtual Agent, the newest addition to the Power Platform. This includes additional channel support, so you can work inside of Teams and WhatsApp, as well as integrate with Azure Bot Framework or Azure Bot Framework Composer to bring additional code-first skills inside the Power Virtual Agent design surface area. • And finally, find out how to make the Power Platform respond to your new remote-work reality. With improved Teams integration, Power Apps now has responsive app templates that work on mobile, as well as desktops, and better understanding of the context that's hosting the application. Additionally, Power Apps Mobile has new mixed-reality capabilities and can visualize 3D assets in space. New to the Power Platform?
