Microsoft set to launch ‘Microsoft Teams’ productivity chat app at Windows 10 event

At its Windows 10 event scheduled to be held on October 26 in New York City, Microsoft will be launching a new effort called ‘Microsoft Teams,’ the company’s own productivity chat app which will chiefly compete with Slack.

According to Microsoft, the new Microsoft Teams productivity chat app – which the company is set to launch – will essentially cater to large teams and classrooms that presently use Slack on a day-to-day basis.

Just like Slack, the Microsoft Teams productivity chat app – which Microsoft had originally named Skype Teams – will feature channels as well as private messaging for groups, along with file-sharing, GIFs and emojis.

Moreover, Microsoft Teams will also feature Threaded Conversations, so as to give the app’s users the ability to respond directly to a comment through Facebook threads. In addition, video chats can also be started by the app’s users in private messages or within channels.

Overall, the forthcoming Microsoft Teams productivity chat app will boast the inclusion of most of functions which are standard for such apps. These functions include chatting, support for documents and images, team organization, and calendars, among other things. The app also comes with integration with Microsoft’s other services such as Skype, OneNote, and OneDrive.
