#1: It’s a chat platform
Whether it’s having an emoji war back and forth in real time, video chatting or simply writing a message, Teams can do it all. Follow along with channels to get all company updates (similar to Yammer groups) and post attachments. Of course you can do this all from your mobile device or computer.
#2: Teamwork is the goal
It combines all Office 365 applications — including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint and Power BI. The familiarity of platforms makes it easy for employees to engage in the platform. With easy to share features your team can be more insync with each other than we ever thought possible.
#3: Integration stems further than Microsoft products
Microsoft says more than 150 software integrations will be headed to Teams soon, including Mailchimp, Kayak, Growbot and Trello. Instead of opening a separate browser, you can now add a tab atop a Teams room’s chat window and view stats in real time.
Office 365 offers an immense breadth of tools that you can customize for your team to work more efficiently. If you don’t need the rich collaboration features of Teams, you can rely on Yammer, Word, Excel and other traditional Office apps. The ability to use these features today if you are a current Office 365 customer is compelling.
