During the outbreak, Microsoft teams became an essential tool for collaborative communication among many enterprises. While based on the enterprise market, Microsoft is also actively expanding the consumer market,So the company today launched a new team for consumers.
This version is still called Microsoft teams, but it is specifically for consumers, or family users. It allows you to contact your family and friends. Although there are big differences in the user interface, Microsoft said that the design concept of team for home users is to help them coordinate, communicate and jointly complete personal projects.
Users can create and share grocery lists in a family group, plan exclusive or jointly create to-do lists, and so on. Although compared with the enterprise team, it still has text, chat and video calls, supports group, list, document, address and calendar sharing, and integrates Microsoft 365.
The Teams for home users also includes a feature called Safe that allows users to share sensitive information. Microsoft explained:
At present, the app has been launched in the form of preview version on Android and IOS platforms, and you only need a Microsoft account to use it. If you have already configured the work account in teams, you only need to configure the personal account again, and then switch in the application. Desktop clients are expected to be released later this year.
