Microsoft Teams is a unified communication and collaboration platform that combines persistent workplace chat, video meetings, file storage (including collaboration on files), and application integration. The service integrates with the Office 365 subscription office productivity suite.]


Teams allows communities, groups, or teams to join through a specific URL or invitation sent by a team administrator or owner. Teams for Education allows admins and teachers to set up specific teams for classes, professional learning communities (PLCs), staff members, etc.


Within a team, members can set up channels. Channels are topics of conversation that allow team members to communicate without the use of email or group SMS (texting). Users can reply to posts with text as well as images, GIFs and custom made memes.

Direct messages allow users to send private messages to a specific user rather than a group of people.

Connectors are third party services that can submit information to the channel.


  • Instant messaging
  • Voice over IP (VoIP)
  • Video conferencing inside the client software

Teams supports public switched telephone network (PSTN) conferencing allowing users to call phone numbers from the client.


Meetings can be scheduled or created ad-hoc and users visiting the channel will be able to see that a meeting is currently in progress.
