Such big figures likely come as a result of Microsoft's dedication to improving Teams with constant updates and support, thereby luring in more and more users.
Teams isn't the only sector Microsoft is experiencing huge growth in, either. As seen in the company's fiscal year 2021 Q3 earnings report, Microsoft is growing its userbases and revenue streams across the board. Its gaming division's revenue is up 50%, Surface revenue is up 12%, and most other sectors of the company are seeing similar gains.
If you're not on Teams yet, odds are Microsoft will unveil some new feature in the near future designed to tempt you or your organization. Because at 145 million active users and counting, the tech giant isn't going to ease off its snowballing momentum anytime soon. Be it through consumer products such as the Surface Laptop 4, services like Xbox Game Pass, or platforms including Teams, Microsoft is intent on getting everyone into one or more of its ecosystems.

I saw something odd and don't really know what it means. Cortana voice assistant is active on teams. Could it be that Teams was the app that convinced enough Windows users to incorporate Cortana in their daily productivity that convinced MSFT to resurrect voice activated Cortana?
