OR Microsoft Teams reached 75 million daily active users at the end of April, a staggering increase from 44 million a month ago. Of course, the increase of 31 million daily active users was fueled by the global health crisis, but on the other hand, the Microsoft says all the efforts he has made over the last two years in Microsoft Teams, finally yield.
And now the company, through its vice president Microsoft 365, Jeff Tepper, claims he expects from Microsoft Teams to continue its upward course. But how far will it go? As Tepper says, “Until it becomes larger than Windows".
Her plan Microsoft is to do it Microsoft Teams greater than Windows. It is an ambitious goal but clearly achievable. The Windows 10 operate on approximately 1 billion devices worldwide, but with Teams development to climb at a very fast pace, it is not difficult to imagine that the platform as a whole can become its new champion Microsoft.
As Teper explained, “H. Teams will be a platform that will go beyond operating systems and will be even bigger than them Windows. We want users to create applications based on Teams running on iOS, Android, web, Mac, and Windows. Thus, the Teams will eventually become the most present platform in the world. It will not exceed the need for Windows, but… "
And Tepper continues: "We will see strong growth, hundreds of millions of people using it Teams. At some point, the amount of time people spend on online dating will logically decrease. The 4 billion minutes a day will continue to increase for the time being, but at some point, that number will decrease because people will not want to spend eight hours a day online meeting if they can meet in person. But as far as users are concerned, I am very optimistic that they will continue to grow. "
Ultimately, the purpose of the platform Microsoft Teams is to become a key part of a really powerful technological system, which the Microsoft wants to create using a range of key products, including Office 365 και Windows.
