What you can do in Microsoft Teams

With Microsoft Teams on your PC, Mac, or mobile device, you can:

  • Pull together a Team
  • Use chat instead of email
  • Securely edit files at the same time
  • See likes, @mentions, and replies with just a single tap
  • Customize it by adding notes, web sites, and apps
  • In the cloud so everyone can work together no matter where they are

With chat, you can have private one-on-one or group conversations that are not in the public team channel. And with calls, you can make calls or check your history or voicemail.

View a chat

  • Select Chat and choose a person or group from the chat list.

Start a chat

  1. Select the New chat icon in the top bar (square with a pencil in it).
  2. Type the name of the person or people you want to contact.
  3. Select the down arrow to add a name to your chat group.

Make video and audio calls from a chat

  • Select Video call or Audio call to call someone directly from a chat.

Use Recent and Favorites

  • On the left side of the app, you'll see your Recent conversations as well as your Favorites.

Make calls and view history or voicemail

  1. Select Calls > Dial a number, and enter a phone number. When you're ready, select Call to start the call.
  2. Select Calls > History to see your call history.
  3. Select Calls > Voicemail to check your voicemail.
  4. If you don't have Calls, select Activity to see any missed calls and voicemail.
