Microsoft Teams is a new software from the global IT giant designed to create spaces for corporate work, communication, file sharing, coordinating meetings, creating team notes, and more. Microsoft introduced the service as part of the Office 365 suite, designed to compete with the popular Slack. Microsoft Teams is integrated with most other Windows office and enterprise products.
The official distributions of the application are hosted on teams.microsoft.com. Today, developers offer this software in more than 180 countries around the world in 18 languages. Currently, only Office 365 Enterprise and Business users can install and use Teams.
Office 365 non-business (Personal, Home, Student) owners do not have access to Microsoft Teams.
