Microsoft today announced the general availability of the new Microsoft Teams app for Windows and Mac. The new Teams client will be available for Edge and Chrome browsers later this year.
Microsoft has been testing a new Microsoft Teams client with major performance improvements since early this year. The first public preview build lacked many key features, which deterred many enterprise users from trying it out. However, Microsoft has been gradually adding the features available in the existing Teams client to the new one. Now, the new Teams now has full feature parity for almost all features including custom line-of-business apps, third-party apps, breakout rooms, 7×7 video, call queues, PSTN calling, contextual search in chats and channels, cross-post a channel conversation, and more.
All the classic Teams users will be automatically upgraded to new Teams client in the coming months. If you want to try out the new Teams client right away, you can click the toggle in the upper-left corner of the classic Teams app. The new Teams client will be delivered to enterpris organizations as per the below schedule:
