Microsoft has been revamping its Teams platform for some time now. The company has continually introduced new tools to increase user experience and efficiency in the workplace.
Microsoft Teams was recently redesigned to function like any other instant messaging app. It was launched on Android and iOS for personal use and is completely free. It can be used as a WhatsApp alternative and provides more features than what is available on WhatsApp. With Teams, users can chat with their friends and family just like on WhatsApp and can invite people that are not on the platform to join.
With the incoming end-to-end encryption, Microsoft Teams promises to rise into a formidable platform that offers users the best features as well as an indelible user experience.
