Microsoft Teams to exit preview with March 14 global launch
Microsoft Teams, the Redmond giant's answer to workplace chat app Slack, is all set for a general release on March 14. Microsoft announced the service will see a global launch next week (opens in new tab), accompanied by a special online event to celebrate.
Microsoft Teams launched into preview in early November, and has been available for organizations to try out in 19 different languages across some 145 markets worldwide. And so far, it appears to have been a success, with Microsoft stating in January that Teams was already being used by around 30,000 organizations.
If you're interested in tuning in, you can register for the launch event (opens in new tab) now.

Might give Teams a go.
I wish there was a free version to use with Microsoft accounts just like there is a free version of Slack.
And one version for Office 365 Home / Personal.
