Microsoft Teams

Meet the hub for teamwork in Office 365.

It takes a village to turn ideas into realities

When you have a place to create and make decisions as a team, there’s no limit to what you can achieve. Teams brings everything together in a shared workspace where you can chat, meet, share files, and work with business apps.

Communicate more effectively

Get your team on the same page with group chat, online meetings, calling, and web conferencing.

Work better together

Collaborate on files with built-in Office 365 apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and SharePoint.

Customize your workspace

Add in your favorite Microsoft apps and third-party services to keep the business moving forward.

Keep your team secure

Get end-to-end security, administrative control, and compliance—all powered by Office 365.

Achieve more together with Microsoft Teams

Meet with teams of 10 or 10,000. Host audio, video, and web conferences with anyone inside or outside your organization or go big with live events.

Get the option that’s right for your business

Teams is designed for groups of all kinds. Get started with the free, no-commitments version. Or, for a more holistic solution, get Teams as part of the best-in-class suite of productivity tools with Office 365 Business Premium or Office 365 Enterprise E3.
