Windows 11: Microsoft announces Teams integration to the operating system

During the Windows 11 presentation event, held on Thursday (24), Microsoft announced the native integration of Teams directly in the operating system, eliminating the need to download a dedicated program to use it.

According to Panos Panay, Microsoft CPO, the integration is not limited to which platform the other user is using: “iOS, Android, Windows, it doesn’t matter”, said the executive.

In the video presented by Microsoft, you can see the Teams icon displayed on the Windows taskbar. With one click the user can see a list of recent contacts, and can quickly start a chat by text, voice or video.

In Windows 10 Teams does not come pre-installed with the operating system. To use it, you need to look for the installer in the official Microsoft store, download and then install it manually.

These news point to a strong Microsoft bet on Teams: during the pandemic, the app went from being used exclusively by the corporate sector to over 147 million daily active users, according to analysis from the German website Statista.
