Microsoft Teams is a chat-based workspace in Office 365 that makes it easy to have conversations, host meetings, share files and collaborate on documents, and get work done with teams across the organization. Microsoft Teams lets you work in a natural, conversational way — with everything you need in one place — available anytime, on any device.
With Microsoft Teams, you can:
A team is a group of people gathered to collaborate in your organization.
Teams are made up of channels, which are the conversations you have with your teammates. Each channel is dedicated to a specific topic, department, or project.
For example, the Northwind Traders team has General, Marketing, Overview, and 32 more channels. All the conversations, meetings, files, and apps in the Marketing channel have to do with marketing, and everything in this channel is visible to everyone on the Northwind Traders team.
Channels are where the work actually gets done—where text, audio, and video conversations open to the whole team happen, where files are shared, and where apps are added.
While channel conversations are public, chats are just between you and someone else (or a group of people). Think of them like instant messages in Skype for Business or other messaging apps.
