Recently, Microsoft unveiled new features that are coming to Microsoft Graph Toolkit v2.
 
Well, Microsoft Graph Toolkit(MGT), v1 introduced back in September 2019, is a collection of web components powered by Microsoft Graph. The components are functional, working automatically with Microsoft Graph, and work with any web framework and on all modern browsers.
 
The company has released a preview version of v2, which you can install now by running npm i @microsoft/mgt@next in your terminal.
 
Some of the new exciting features include mgt-person-card issue #528, Dark theme, Caching of Microsoft Graph calls issue #221, and mgt-react package.
 
The redesign of Person Card brings several new sections of information centered around the person you are interested in connecting with. New sections allow you to show organization information, existing email threads that you both participated in, files you both have access to, and even skills and experiences the person has from the new Profile API. The company said that it is now on to the next step to make the Person Card extensible. So that you can add your own sections and additional information you would like to present.
