Microsoft Teams is now available in Office 365

​In November 2016, Microsoft rolled out Teams in preview mode, but as of last week the Office 365-based group chat app is fully available.

The announcement came via a global webcast from Microsoft headquarters, where details about the tweaks and changes made since the November introduction were also brought up.

Microsoft wrote on Office Blogs that they added over 100 new features to Teams based on feedback and requests from top customers.

Some of the new features include audio calling from mobile devices, video on Android (coming soon to iOS and Windows Phone), and the ability to email a channel, including attachments.

Since November, more than 50,000 organisations have started using Teams, among them leading companies like Accenture, Alaska Airlines, Deloitte, and Expedia.

Boasting more than 85 million active users, Office 365 is designed to empower both the individuals and teams that constitute organisations as the "broadest and deepest" collaboration toolkit.

With Outlook for enterprise-level email, SharePoint for smart content management, Yammer for cross-network organisation, and Skype for Business as a voice and video backbone, Microsoft Teams fits right in as a casual chat-based workspace.

After the preview mode launch last year, there were reports that the app would quickly overtake competitor Slack – and with the way Teams has been adopted, that could definitely happen.
