  • Microsoft Teams hits 13 million daily active users, potentially more than Slack

Catching up so shortly in viewers size over two years when Slack has been around since August 2013 is a feather in Microsoft's cap and could also be a cause why it has opted to attend so long to announce any numbers about Teams.

Microsoft's Teams collaboration app is now used by 13 million individuals on a daily basis, according to data released by the company Thursday, surpassing rival Slack for the first time.

Microsoft is sharing some important details for its Microsoft Teams product.

On Thursday, Microsoft announced that Teams has over 13 million daily active users.

Shift workers are now getting the ability to clock out using a "Time Clock" feature in the Shifts module of Teams.

At the top of the list is the introduction of prioritized communications, including priority notifications and read receipts.

Most of the companies using Slack also favor Google G Suite for day-to-day office tasks, while those relying on Microsoft Office products are mostly Teams users by default because Microsoft bundles Teams with its Office 365 subscriptions for all business clients.

Teams has seen swift growth largely due to the reach of Office 365 and Microsoft's popularity in business. For IT pros, Microsoft noted that Teams is now available to Office 365 Business and Office 365 ProPlus subscribers, which was announced last month.

Microsoft also outrightly bans its own employees from using Slack, Geekwire reported last month. The company says its Microsoft Security service is now generally available and provides more profitability to collaborators and customers. Managers can use geofencing to make sure employees are on location when they clock in.

These features help Microsoft Teams users communicate across multiple channels and send out information more efficiently.

A mere two days earlier, Schuster, in a prerecorded webcast, addressed Microsoft's planned partner investments that the company will focus on during next week's annual Inspire conference in Las Vegas. "Customers and partners alike continue to move to the cloud and accelerate their digital transformation, leading us to new and different levels of partnership", said Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft's One Commercial Partner group.

Microsoft also discussed how it is increasing opportunities it provides to partners.

"Other new partner integrations for Teams include support for contact centers, compliance recording and cloud solution providers". Workforce management solutions integration with Teams is another ongoing partner effort.
