Microsoft Teams, a chat and collaboration platform for Microsoft Office 365 customers was designed to simplify group work. Basically, Teams is Microsoft’s answer to competing platforms such as Slack and Atlassian’s HipChat. In its simplest form the service allows users to set up Teams, each of which is essentially a hub for group chat rooms, which are called channels.
Teams’ integration with other Microsoft services allows users access to shared files and calendars, collaborative editing, and easy switching between voice, video and text chat. The service is available to most subscribers to Microsoft cloud-based Office 365 suite.
