In order to enhance the collaboration capabilities in Microsoft Office 365, cloud-based productivity helps more than 85 million monthly active commercial users.

As per Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft,

“At Microsoft we aim to empower every person and organization with the technology to be more productive as individuals and in groups”. “Office 365 is the broadest toolkit and platform for creation, communication and collaboration. Microsoft Teams adds a new experience to Office 365 as the chat-based workspace designed to empower the art of teams.”

Some elements that are of the utmost importance in terms of  the Microsoft Team are, they provide persistent, threaded chat to keep everyone engaged and informed, in addition to offering private chat capabilities, and offering team conversations, which are visible to the entire team by default.
 
Within the Microsoft Teams experience, people can start voice and video meetings, as well as work with Microsoft Office documents directly beside Microsoft Graph, which enables intelligence to help with information relevance, discovery, and sharing.
 
Microsoft Teams gives the opportunity for teams to customize the experience to meet their specific needs. To bring notifications and updates from third-party services, such as Twitter or GitHub, directly into the experience, Microsoft Teams supports the same Connector model as Exchange.
 
With the help of a transparent operational model with no standing access to customer data, the data is encrypted in addition to offering global scale and advanced security and compliance capabilities provided by the Microsoft Cloud.
 
Office 365 IT administrators can enable Microsoft Teams for their organization from the Office 365 admin center and it has a wide reach which is evident from the fact that the preview is available in 181 countries and 18 languages.
