Here is all that you want to know about Microsoft Teams:


Microsoft Teams opens possibilities to collection and collaboration that we never thought was possible before. It provides entirely new experience that brings together people, conversations and content—along with the tools that teams need—so they can easily collaborate to achieve more. It's naturally integrated with the familiar Office applications and is built from the ground up on the Office 365 global, secure cloud. Now a days teams are more agile and organizational structures are more flat to keep communications and information flowing. With Microsoft Teams, the idea is to create a more open, digital environment that makes work visible, integrated and accessible—across the team—so everyone can stay in the know.
