Introduction video outs Microsoft Teams ahead of official announcement

We're expecting Microsoft to introduce its Slack competitor, Microsoft Teams, imminently at its November Office event. However, if you can't wait, an introduction video for the service has leaked out just ahead of the event, courtesy of avid leaker WalkingCat on Twitter

The text description of the video reads:

Introducing Microsoft Teams, the chat-based workspace in Office 365. When teams have a dedicated place designed to help them be more effective together, there's no limit to what they can achieve.

You can check out the introduction video in the embed above, and we should know much, much more about Teams pretty soon.

  • In office 365... That's going to be restrictive....
  • lol, not for the market that actually has and spends money. Slack can have the startups and free firms.
  • Do you use Slack Daniel? How do you manage there is no conversations/threads? Or the thing you can't answer to somebody attached document/image? I tried a couple of times but can't see the mojo against Yammer
  • does this replace skype for business, please god say yes skype for business is awful and loses messages non stop
  • Never used it but watching the video, it makes sense that it'll replace SfB.
    It's powered by Skype and Office 365 :)

  • This will be a nice addition for Office 365 customers, more vendor lock in effect.
