Microsoft Teams hit another usage milestone. The collaboration software now has 20 million daily active users according to Microsoft (via OnMSFT). Microsoft announced the figure in a new post (opens in new tab) that shares advice on how to run a successful team. Microsoft Teams continues to show growth and OnMSFT points out that it is Microsoft's fastest growing new Office 365 app.
Back in July, an SEC filing revealed that Microsoft Teams hit 13 million daily active users. That filing included figures through January 31, 2019. The latest post states that "today Teams has more than 20 million daily active users," meaning that in less than 10 months Microsoft Teams grew by over 50 percent in terms of daily active users. The same SEC filing also states that Microsoft Teams had 19 million weekly active users in January, meaning that the service now has more daily active users than it had weekly active users near the beginning of this year.
For comparison Microsoft's biggest competitor - Slack - claimed in October 12 million monthly active users.
Microsoft Teams allows you to collaborate with colleagues, upload files, send messages, and chat through video. It integrates with Office 365 and several other cloud services.
