What you need to know

  • Microsoft Teams has a revamped store that makes it easier to find apps.
  • The store has a new landing page, curated apps, and tools to find apps used by colleagues.
  • Microsoft also expanded the list of categories and industries to choose from in the store.

The Microsoft Teams Store has been rebuilt to help workers find apps. The revamped experience includes a new landing page, categories of curated apps, and an expanded list of categories and industries to choose from. The new Teams Store will roll out over the next month, according to a recent Tech Community (opens in new tab) post from Microsoft.

The new landing page within the Teams Store features a carousel along the top that spotlights apps. It also has collections of apps curated by editors that will be updated monthly.

The store will show recommendations based on which apps your colleagues and peers are using, which should show more relevant applications. A collection of the most popular apps on Teams will also appear within the store.

There are over 1,000 apps in the Teams Store, which can make it difficult to find tools that will aid your workflow. An expanded range of categories is coming to the store, such as Training & tutorial, Project management, and education. These categories should make it easier to for employees to find apps within their industry.

Microsoft teased other plans for Teams at the end of its post. "We're actively redesigning the installation dialog, adding several new curated and intelligent surfaces to the Store, and we're looking forward to sharing these with you soon."
