Microsoft announces the global availability of Microsoft Teams

Microsoft today announced the global availability of Microsoft Teams, the new chat-based workspace in Office 365. Microsoft Teams supports not only persistent but also threaded chats to keep everyone engaged. Skype is deeply integrated, so teams can participate in voice and video conferences. And everyone can add personality to their digital workspace with emojis, stickers, GIFs and custom memes to make it their own. Since Microsoft announced the preview in November, more than 50,000 organizations have started using Microsoft Teams, including Alaska Airlines, Cerner Corporation, ConocoPhillips, Deloitte, Expedia, J.B. Hunt, J. Walter Thompson, Hendrick Motorsports, Sage, Trek Bicycle and Three UK.

  • All your content, tools, people, and conversations are available in the team workspace
