Microsoft Teams in Office 365 reach general availability. Since announcing the preview in November 2016, more than 50,000 organizations have started using Microsoft Teams. Also introduced more than 100 new features to deliver ongoing innovation and address top customer requests.
Microsoft Teams—the chat-based workspace in Office 365
Microsoft Teams is a digital workspace built on four core promises: chat for today’s teams, a hub for teamwork, customization options and security teams trust.
Chat for today’s teams
Microsoft Teams provides a modern conversations experience, with threaded, persistent chat to keep everyone engaged. We’ve rolled out many new communication features since preview, including audio calling from mobile devices, plus video on Android, which is coming soon to iOS and Windows Phone.
The Office 365 applications and services that people use every day—including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint and Power BI*—are built into Microsoft Teams, giving people the information and tools they need.
Every team is unique, so we’ve made it easy for teams to customize their workspace with Tabs, Connectors and Bots. More than 150 integrations are available or coming soon, including Bots from hipmunk, Growbot and ModuleQ.
Finally, Microsoft Teams is built on the Office 365 hyper-scale, enterprise-grade cloud, delivering the advanced security and compliance capabilities our customers expect. Microsoft Teams supports global standards, including SOC 1, SOC 2, EU Model Clauses, ISO27001 and HIPAA.
These security and compliance capabilities are critical for enterprise customers, but our responsibility at Microsoft goes beyond this.
