As a part of Microsoft’s transition from Microsoft Office 365 to Microsoft 365, there was an announcement regarding the new consumer features in Microsoft Teams. The announcement comes as a move to indicate that the company wants to reinforce its commitment to the consumers. The company made an official announcement last year, but with the new indication, it is clear that the segment is very important to Microsoft. The Teams for families will now focus on moving all the new features from Microsoft 365, into a hub for families and consumers.

The Microsoft Teams for families and consumers is a collaboration, event, and chat planning hub which is targeted only for friends and family conversations. The edge that the company wants to provide for its customers is the ability to do multiple tasks without the need for using another app. Video calling and messaging for individuals and groups. Unique sharing capabilities of Microsoft Teams have features like sharing locations, calendars, Microsoft 365 docs, tasks, and much more. The app allows you to easily switch between profiles so that you can maintain work and personal profiles in the same app. The feature like dashboard is also pretty new to the family messaging app.
