Microsoft Teams general availability

Microsoft has released a new feature of Office 365 called Teams. It is a digital workspace built on four core promises: chat for instant messaging, a hub for teamwork, customization options and security teams trust. The Office 365 applications and services that people use every day - including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Power BI, OneNote, and SharePoint - are built into Microsoft Teams, giving people the information and tools they need.

Every team is unique, so Microsoft has made it easy for teams to customize their workspace with Tabs, Connectors and Bots. More than 150 integrations are available now in your Office 365 portal. Check it out!
