Microsoft announces the new “Microsoft Teams” competing with Slack

Rajesh Jha, EVP of the Microsoft Office Product Group, announces the new “Microsoft Teams” this morning.

Microsoft Teams is a chat-based workspace in Office 365.  Microsoft Teams is an entirely new experience that brings together people, conversations, content, and the tools teams need to collaborate and achieve more together.

Microsoft Teams is a digital translation of an open office space. One that fosters easy connection and conversation to help people build relationships and work together. It makes work visible, integrated, and accessible across the team keeping everyone connected.

The way people work together is evolving, and unique projects, workstyles, functional roles and workforce diversity call for a complete set of collaboration tools. Office 365 offers a full set of solutions, including Office 365 ProPlus, Outlook, Yammer, SharePoint, Skype and now, Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams provides a modern threaded persistent chat experience that builds on Office 365’s group infrastructure, global scale, enterprise grade security and graph driven intelligence.  Familiar Office apps are all integrated and available from within your Microsoft Teams workspace and you can customize and add your personality to your team with cool emojis, GIFs & stickers ;-).
