Microsoft Teams

What is Microsoft Teams?

A screenshot of Teams in action

Microsoft Teams is a unified communication and collaboration platform that combines

  • persistent workplace chat
  • video meetings*
  • file storage (including collaboration on files)
  • application integration

The service integrates with Downstate's Office 365 subscription and features extensions that can integrate with non-Microsoft products

It works on all devices.

The best part? It's available to every employee and student at Downstate!

Microsoft Teams will supersede Skype For Business on July 31, 2021.
