Tech giant Microsoft, in a bid to compete with Slack, launched a free tier of Teams on Thursday.
Earlier, organizations which had not subscribed to Microsoft’s Office 365 suite could only use a 30 days trial of the workplace collaboration program- Teams.
The release of the free tier of the software is excellent news for people. Now potential users, typically startups and small organizations, will find it easy to use the software of Microsoft.
The long-speculated free version of Teams is finally here and is available in 40 languages worldwide. At present, over 200K businesses over 181 markets across the world use this software for collaboration and getting tasks accomplished.
Microsoft’s Corporate VP Ron Markezich stated that freelancers, small businesspersons, people working in big corporations, can all work on Teams.
The newly rolled out free tier, which can be used in an organization with up to 300 employees, will offer several perks. It provides unlimited chat messages and searchable history. Users can access individual or group audio and video calling feature.
