"Office 365 is the broadest toolkit and platform for creation, communication and collaboration. Microsoft Teams adds a new experience to Office 365 as the chat-based workspace designed to empower the art of teams," said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in a statement.

Microsoft Teams is also built on Office 365 Groups, the cross-application membership service that makes it easy for people to move naturally from one collaboration tool to another.

The workspace offers the ability for teams to customise the experience to meet their specific needs and team members can create channels to organise conversations by topic.
