Microsoft introduced Teams in late 2016 as an alternative to Slack, the popular team collaboration tool. Since that time, Teams has been adopted by more than 200,000 businesses around the globe but hasn’t appealed to small outfits and freelancers due to a lack of a free version. Today, that changes.
On Thursday, Microsoft launched a free version of Teams worldwide across 40 languages. It supports up to 300 users and offers unlimited app integrations and search, features you won’t find in the free version of Slack.
