Microsoft announces Microsoft Teams chat-based workspace
Microsoft has announced a new service for the Office 365 called Microsoft Teams to improve productivity and collaboration in the workplace.
Microsoft Teams focuses teamwork and collaboration. It is like a digital workspace for multiple users where they can work, communicate, and share their progress. Users can also customize their workspace with emojis, stickers, GIFs and custom memes to make it more personal.
Since it’s powered by Office 365, popular Office tools like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneNote, Planner, Power BI and Delve are all built into Microsoft Teams. In addition, Skype is also integrated so teams can participate in voice and video conferences.
Microsoft Teams runs on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and web platforms, and is available in preview in 181 countries and in 18 languages to commercial customers with Office 365 Enterprise or Business plans, with general availability expected in the first quarter of 2017.
