Microsoft Teams is Microsoft’s collaborative platform. Available via an online application or on desktop, tablet and smartphone, it is now available in more than 180 countries around the world. With a Teams account, you can easily work as a team with the Office 365 suite and participate in group conversations. It is also possible to make free audio and video calls in HD on the application.
Although the application is free, use of Microsoft Teams requires a commercial subscription to Office 365 or a trial version of Teams.
