Microsoft Teams is an incredibly powerful collaboration tool with a million and one features. Whether you are collaborating with a single person in a private chat, sharing memes with your team or collaborating on a large project with multiple groups, Teams has you covered. Teams offers rich chat features that included text, audio, video, file sharing and more. Using Teams, you can store team files, track tasks in planner or make a quick group video call. Teams allows you to collaborate and connect however you want. Microsoft Teams also brings increased productivity with its streamlined tools and expanded collaboration options.
