What you need to know
- The Microsoft Teams app is coming to the Microsoft Store.
- It's slated for May 2022 general availability, though that date is subject to change.
- The app will support different aspects of Teams depending on whether you're using Windows 11 or 10.
The day is almost here when the Microsoft Store will have Microsoft Teams stocked on its digital shelves. As spotted on the Microsoft 365 roadmap, it could be just a matter of weeks before Teams officially hits the storefront.
According to the roadmap, where all good Microsoft product and service updates are found, general availability for the introduction of Teams to the MS Store is slated for May 2022. Do note that roadmap dates are estimates, not guarantees, so until you see the app firsthand on the storefront, nothing is set in stone.
Here's the description Microsoft has for the change: "Microsoft Teams app for work, school and life will soon be available to download from Microsoft store. This app will support work, school and consumer accounts on Windows 10 and Work or school accounts on Windows 11."
With Teams, the Microsoft Store will grow that much stronger. It's already assimilated other storefronts and major browsers, so the logical conclusion was for Microsoft to bring its own communications platform under the umbrella as well.
