Microsoft today announced that Teams is now available to Office 365 customers. Their answer to Slack has been in preview since it was announced last fall. I have used the preview and was impressed with how quickly Microsoft got this service up and running. If you are an Office 365 customer it might make sense to just use Teams since it’s included in many business plans.
With more than 85 million active users, Office 365 empowers individuals, teams and entire organizations with the broadest and deepest toolkit for collaboration. Office 365 is designed to meet the unique workstyle of every group with purpose-built, integrated applications: Outlook for enterprise-grade email; SharePoint for intelligent content management; Yammer for networking across the organization; Skype for Business as the backbone for enterprise voice and video; and now, Microsoft Teams, the new chat-based workspace in Office 365.
