Microsoft announced that Microsoft Teams hit 20 million daily active users a huge milestone for them up adding 7 million users since July. Microsoft Teams which competes with Slack for dominance in the workflow market allow one app for chat, meetings, calling, document collaboration, and workflow. Microsoft used to compete with Skype For Business then recently switch to Teams in an effort to be more competitive with rival Slack.
Microsoft said in a blog post today
“The way we work has changed. Today, winning in business requires constant innovation, and this innovation in turn requires collaboration across disciplines, geographies, and cultures. Prior to this seismic shift in the workplace, the atomic unit of productivity was the individual. Now it’s the team. A high-performing team brings together talented individuals and operates as more than the sum of its parts. It draws on the strengths of each member and compensates for individual limitations. But in an increasingly distributed and fast-paced world, even the perfect team chemistry isn’t enough. Today’s teams also need collaboration tools that help them put that chemistry to work. They need technology that can reach across space and time and help team members feel like they’re just a few feet away, even when they’re worlds apart.” Going on to say “In fact, today Teams has more than 20 million daily active users. What’s more, while these users start with simple text-based chat, they quickly move on to richer forms of communication and collaboration. For instance, last month Teams customers participated in more than 27 million voice or video meetings and performed over 220 million open, edit, or download actions on files stored in Teams.”
Microsoft has said the integration with Office365 has driven the apportion rate of Microsoft Teams.
