At an event in New York City today, Microsoft unveiled yet another competitor application, called Microsoft Teams.
This time, Microsoft is competing with the Slack application, which will allow teams to use the service as a chat-based workspace that has a focus on real-time collaboration.
In particular, the Microsoft Teams app will differentiate itself by building in some of Microsoft’s other products such as Skype, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.
It will also link with Office 365 Groups, making it a formidable competitor for the business industry.
Microsoft Teams will also come with customisation features, which will let users design their own experience with cloud services and built in Microsoft Bot integration.
Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella explained more about it with the following:
“Microsoft teams will bring together chat, meeting, notes, Office, planner, PowerBI, and a host of extensions and applications to help teams get work done.”
