Microsoft is integrating Teams to its Office 365 suite of online productivity software. The Slack alternative is another move by Microsoft to become an ‘all-in-one’ service company for organisations and users heavily into collaborative work.
Teams provides a centralised platform online for user groups to perform various tasks, share data or even chat. What separates Teams from competitors is its ability to segue into other Microsoft products like Skype and Outlook. The platform can also integrate bots and other third-party programmes. More interestingly, it offers encryption and other methods of security.
Currently, the service is only available for commercial users working on Office 365 Business or Enterprise. The preview version is available in over 181 countries in 18 languages. It will be out for all users before March 2017.
