Shure To Certify Microphones & DSPs To Work With Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams hits 13 million daily active users, potentially more than Slack

Microsoft Team, with 13 million users has successfully surpassed its closest competitor Slack which has 10 million daily active users.

Microsoft generates more than $120 billion in revenue annually, but Schuster said previously that the rising costs would have required the partner organization to cut back on other key initiatives.

So, these are worrying statistics for Slack, with Microsoft apparently making good progress, despite the fact that many respondents to the survey didn't think Teams was actually as good as Slack. Jared Spataro, corporate vice president for Microsoft 365, underscored the potential of Teams in a virtual briefing.

Microsoft also unveiled a range of new features for Teams at Inspire on Thursday, continuing its efforts to attract front-line or firstline workers to the platform. These should enhance the AV capabilities of the Microsoft Teams software, which enables users to hold both video and audio conference calls with the touch of a button. Slack shares are now trading below its IPO price of $38.50. Slack, on the other hand, has a net score of 28%, which represents a drop of 26% on three months ago, and a worrying decline of 45% compared to the second half of previous year. Three months ago, Slack was showing a 26% year-over-year decline. Microsoft introduced Teams to customers on Office 365 subscriptions in March 2017 after which added a free version in July 2018.

At the heart of the issue was Microsoft's plans from 1 July 2020 to no longer provide free internal use association for product licenses for the channel, meaning they will now have to be purchased out of the partners' own pockets via a commercial arrangement.

This is the most specific Microsoft has gotten yet with information about its group-chatting platform. Teams also is the focal point of Microsoft's strategy to integrate communications and collaboration with its core platforms. You can check out the entire feature list at the Microsoft 365 blog but here are some of the most interesting updates.

The big news is that some partners will be able to launch Teams trials for their customers. But most organizations are using just the base functionality of Teams today, said Cortez La Palme, an executive for Avanade's digital advisory and innovation services group.

Finally, IT admins can apply predefined policies across Team functions including messages and meetings. "But we are also hearing clients ask, 'What's the next step?'"

At the top of the list is the introduction of prioritized communications, including priority notifications and read receipts. Additional new partner integrations include support for contact centers, compliance recording and cloud solution providers.
