Microsoft Teams English Version

Microsoft Teams is a program that allows you to connect with many people in real time. It's not just a platform for chatting and tele- and video-conferencing, but also a virtual place to collaborate with others. With MS Teams we can share and send files, which will be particularly appreciated by those working in larger teams. The Windows developer's platform can successfully be called a virtual open space for group work. It combines the functionalities of many other platforms, which makes it a powerful tool that we can use for many other things besides contacting other people. In addition to instant messaging, Microsoft Teams is a file-sharing space that we can work on with other people and track changes in real time.
