What is Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams takes collaboration to the next step by eliminating emails in the workflow and functioning as the central communication hub. With MS Teams, you can chat, share files, host, or accept conference calls (audio, video, or web conference) without leaving the app. As a Microsoft product, Teams feature unmatched integration with Office 365, so you don’t even need to switch apps when collaborating with Office documents. You can create and share immediately within the dashboard for immediate feedback. To protect user privacy and prevent unauthorized users from viewing conversations or attending meetings, Microsoft has placed a number of safety and security enhancements. You can get the basic version of Microsoft Teams for free, while more functional versions that are integrated with Microsoft 365 for Business and MS Office are also available via monthly subscriptions.
