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, accompanied by a special online event to celebrate.
On Tuesday, March 14 at 8:30 a.m. PT, we will celebrate the global availability of Microsoft Teams—the chat-based workspace in Office 365. Please join us for an online event to mark the occasion. Microsoft Corporate Vice President Kirk Koenigsbauer and a special guest will share perspectives on teamwork, what's new in Microsoft Teams, and talk about how customers are using Office 365 to collaborate and deliver great results.
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 now.
