Microsoft Teams is now at 75 million daily active users, according to stats shared by CEO Satya Nadella during the company's Q3 2020 earnings call today. That's a surge from the 44 million daily active users that Microsoft reported in March, and the 20 million daily users the company reported in November 2019.
Extrapolating further, Microsoft said that it saw more than 200 million meeting participants in one day this month, which generated more than 4.1 billion meeting minutes overall.
A major reason for the recent surge is the ongoing global health crisis, which has forced many companies shift to remote work for the first time. In response to the outbreak, Microsoft has moved to make Teams more accessible for people and companies that are now working from home. Microsoft began offering Teams premium features for free for six months.
In addition to the Teams numbers, Microsoft also stated that Microsoft 365 now has 258 million paid seats. Microsoft 365 is set to expand even further as Office 365 rebrands to Microsoft 365 for consumers. Microsoft Teams will eventually be included as part of that transition as well.
