Get the Newer, Faster Microsoft Teams


Microsoft Teams has recently undergone a major overhaul, with the new version being faster, simpler, and more flexible than ever before. 


  • Custom Channel Announcement Backgrounds: Make your channel announcements stand out and grab attention with personalized backgrounds. 
  • Loop Components in Channels: Keep your team on the same page and easily share updates with Loop components. These embeddable modules let you insert live content from other Microsoft apps like OneNote and Excel directly into your channels, fostering real-time collaboration. 
  • Improved Search Experience: Find what you need faster with the enhanced search functionality. Filter results by content type, date, and even domain-specific searches to narrow down your findings and locate relevant information efficiently. 
  • OneDrive Experience: Access and manage your files seamlessly with the integrated OneDrive app. Engage with a familiar interface for storing, sharing, and collaborating on documents, eliminating the need to switch between apps. 
  • Past Copilot Conversation History: View your past conversations, recall previous interactions, and reference helpful information with Copilot, the AI assistant app within Teams. 

To switch to the new Teams app, simply flip the toggle next to “Try the new Teams” in the upper-left corner of the classic Teams app.
