Can Microsoft Team Compete with Slack?

Listen To This Article:

The new updates to Microsoft Team come as an update to its Office 365 Collaboration suite. The company rolled out the new updates this week. 

Microsoft Team vs Slack

Microsoft made Team free to use in 40 different languages. Now, you can use the free version of Microsoft Team for up to 300 users.

If you opt to use the free version you will get a storage limit of a 20GB. On the other hand, the free version of Slack comes with a 5GB storage limit. Additionally, you can only read 10,000 lines of chat which can cause much inconvenience. But Team users can search through their entire chat history without any limitations.

Microsoft Teams Video Conferencing

With the latest update, you will also see a new addition to the Video Conferencing feature on Team- Background Blur. If you have to attend an important meeting with your entire team from a coffee shop, just get into it. In short, Microsoft Team will use Artifical Intelligence to blur out the unnecessary faces and objects, saving you the embarrassment.
