Microsoft Teams is now appreciated by almost 250 million monthly active users across the globe, according to Microsoft CEO and Chairman Satya Nadella.
Nadella remarked Microsoft Teams is being used by global users to communicate, collaborate, and co-author content across work, life, and learning.
“Microsoft Teams is the new front end,” said Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella. “It’s where people meet, chat, call, collaborate and automate business processes, all within the flow of work. Teams usage has never been higher,’’ he added. Nadella also commented that the phone category on Microsoft Teams is also growing at an exponential pace with total calls surpassing 1 billion in a single month in the June-ended quarter.
“We’re just getting started. Just like video meetings, chat, and business processes happen in Teams, calls happen in Teams – creating a huge new opportunity,’’ he added.
“We’re bringing Teams to consumers so people can connect and collaborate with family and friends across desktop, mobile, and the web. All this innovation is driving growth. Some 124 organisations now have more than 1,00,000 users of Teams while nearly 3,000 have more than 10,000 users,’’ he elaborated.
“We saw a 70% increase in the number of small and medium business customers. And, it’s reflected in our sales growth – with annual revenue continuing to increase 40% year over year. We are going further to protect organisations, and our recent acquisitions of CloudKnox, ReFirm Labs, and RiskIQ bolster our security capabilities in key areas, including identity management, IoT, and threat intelligence,” Nadella said.
