Microsoft Teams

Introducing Microsoft Teams. The platform that combines workplace chat, meetings, notes and attachments. Teams integrates with your Office 365 subscription productivity suite and features extensions that can integrate with non-Microsoft products as well.

One Place for Your Meetings, Calls and Collaborations

Chat privately or as a group, and join meetings with HD audio and video, all in one place, instead of multiple apps.

Collaborate with Integrated Office 365 Apps

Office apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are built-in, giving you access to files and tools in one place, so you stay in your workflow.

Security & Compliance

Teams is integrated into Office 365, which means it features the enterprise-grade security and compliance you need.

Tailor Your Workspace

Get notifications and content from services you care about - Trello, GitHub, Adobe Creative CloudTwitter, SurveyMonkey, and many more.
