Why is Microsoft Teams so popular?

Microsoft Teams is a hub with everything you need all in one place. So, you can work with your team no matter where you are. The workspace enables you to communicate with your team over chats, calls and meetings. It has Office applications, content and authoring capabilities, your everyday apps and services and bots and connectors. 

Microsoft Teams enables your team to streamline connections across devices, ensuring a seamless, consistent experience with superior audio and video quality. You can connect with personal and shared room devices and integrate your phone system for calling capabilities. 

Transform your workplace collaboration into one unified digital hub where teams can meet, call and chat. As a result, this will elevate remote productivity by streamlining business processes. Moreover, Microsoft Teams will empower your team by hosting 1:1 meetings, group events or large virtual conferences.

Furthermore, Microsoft Teams helps you stay protected with cost-effective security, which will help reduce costs and risk in the long term. Consolidating to one platform can help your security team to coordinate protection, detection, response and prevention more efficiently. Lastly, this will help ensure compliance and governance across the board.

Communicate through Chat

Microsoft Team allows you to communicate and keep the team in the know through threaded, persistent and contextual chat.
