Microsoft Teams is now generally available

Today is one of the awesome day as Microsoft announced that Microsoft Teams – the chat based workspace in Office 365 – is not GA in 181 markets and in 19 languages. This Office 365 based application is pretty awesome and it was very well received by over 50,000 organizations when Microsoft announced the preview in Novermber last year.

One of thing I really like about Microsoft Team is the speed at which they worked on many user feedback in last four months or so.

For anyone that is new to Microsoft Teams I will just provide very high level overview here.

Microsoft Teams provides a modern conversations experience, with threaded, persistent chat to keep everyone engaged. We’ve rolled out many new communication features since preview, including audio calling from mobile devices, plus video on Android, which is coming soon to iOS and Windows Phone. And we’ve addressed numerous customer requests, adding the ability to email a channel, including attachments, send messages with markdown-based formatting, and receive notifications about all posts in a channel.

You should check out the official announcements and discussion below.

I am very confident that moving forward, Microsoft Teams will be providing new features and good developer platform.
