Microsoft Teams: Embracing the Future Era

By Jeff Teper, President, Collaboration Applications and Platforms, Microsoft

Since launching in 2017, our vision for Microsoft Teams has been to bring all your communication and collaboration tools together in one place, from chat and meetings to apps and files. Whether it’s for work, school or home, more than 280 million people rely on Teams every month to stay productive and stay connected with colleagues, partners, customers, friends and family. Teams also supports a variety of amazing innovations from third-party ISVs, enterprise developers, and system integrators—there are already more than 1,900 apps in the Teams app store and more than 100,000 custom apps that integrate seamlessly with the Teams platform. These applications, combined with the extensive ecosystem of Teams certified devices and Teams meeting rooms, can help you maintain a high level of productivity throughout your workflow.

We’ve been listening to your feedback and rebuilt Teams based on those suggestions. The new Teams app is built on speed, performance, flexibility, and intelligence—up to 2x performance with 50% or less memory to help you save more time and collaborate more effectively. We’ve also unified the user experience to make Teams easier to use and easier to find what you need in one place.These enhanced capabilities also lay the foundation for revolutionary new AI-driven experiences such asearlier this monthAnnouncing Copilot for Microsoft Teams.

more flexible.We know that many of our customers have organizational management needs that span multiple tenants and accounts. That’s why we’ve invested heavily in supporting these scenarios. We’ve improved the authentication model, sync and notification systems to provide a seamless and consistent experience. For example, many customers need to collaborate with external people across organizations, which means they need to use Teams across multiple tenants or accounts at this time. Now, instead of logging in and out of different tenants and accounts, you can stay logged in across all tenants and accounts – no matter which one you are currently using, you will be notified.
