Microsoft Launches Slack Competitor with Microsoft Teams

Microsoft has launched a competitor to Slack and other persistent chat applications that allows collaborators to chat back and forth in real time through a web user experience and mobile apps.

Teams can be activated within your existing Office 365 tenant. With Teams, now Microsoft has yet another method for collaboration including:

  • Yammer
  • Outlook Conversations
  • Teams
  • Team Sites
  • Skype
  • Delve Boards
  • Good ol Fashioned Email

All of these services essentially do the same thing – facilitate discussion amongst teams working together. Some are more real time, some are more document centric, but they all focus on enabling collaboration amongst teams.
