Microsoft team communication service, Microsoft Teams, is soon getting support for third-party cloud storage services. Microsoft Teams is built on Office 365, which means it integrates with OneDrive and OneDrive for Business by default. Today, Microsoft announced that the company is bringing Google Drive and Dropbox integration to Microsoft Teams as well.
There isn’t a lot to know about the new third-party cloud storage service integration as of yet. Microsoft says that Teams will allow users to collaborate on documents from Google Drive and Dropbox, and they will also be able to share files from their Google Drive/Dropbox account in conversations. In addition to that, users will also have the chance to map folders from these cloud storage services on their channels which is pretty neat.
As for right now, Microsoft is adding some improvements to meetings in Teams as users are now able to view the video on a meeting while working on other things in Teams. The company also added the ability to perform actions like copying, moving, or deleting to multiple files at the same time which will be very handy.
