Office 365 is chock full of so many apps that it’s sometimes difficult to keep track of them all. Sure, you have the most popular tools like Word and Skype for Business, but there are three tools in the lineup that seem like they could be used the same way: Outlook Groups, Yammer, and Microsoft Teams.
Despite being late to the group chat scene, Microsoft Teams is equipped with a handful of features and impressive integration that set it apart from its competitors. So if you’re already subscribed to Office 365, here’s how you can take Teams to the next level.
Microsoft Teams is core to our vision for intelligent communications—bringing together conversations, meetings, files, Office apps, and third-party integrations—to provide a single hub for teamwork in Office 365. Teams is now being used by over 125,000 organizations across the world in just six months since its launch.
How it works
In your calendar view in Outlook, you will now see a new button called “New Teams Meeting.” Clicking this button opens a new Outlook invite that includes the coordinates for your Microsoft Teams meeting, which you can customize with your meeting details.

We are pleased to share with you, in our blog of April 27, our webinar on "2017 Office 365 Collaboration Tools".
Microsoft multiplies the collaboration platforms in the Office 365 suite for the benefit of users.
Skype, Yammer, and Microsoft Teams are 3 tools available within Office 365 that are used daily for communication and collaboration within teams and groups. Though they have similar functions, each one of these tools has their own advantages, and optimal scenarios for use.
Microsoft Teams is a new addition to your Office 365 hub. It’s a solution specifically made for team collaboration. Though it shares some of the functionalities of Yammer and Skype, Teams does a whole lot that makes it a unique, formidable addition to your apps.
