Well, there’s some good news for Windows 10 and Windows 11 users in the stores. Turns out Microsoft has finally rolled out its popular team communications app Microsoft Teams on Microsoft Store.
It means that the users will be able to download the communications app directly from the Store rather than from Microsoft’s website. Although the experiences remain the same between the two channels, convenience is the part where the Store makes a clear distinction.
Microsoft Teams is now available on Microsoft Stores
According to the latest update, Microsoft has rolled out Microsoft Teams app on Microsoft Store, it’s very own app marketplace for Windows PCs. Instead of going through the website and downloading it, both Windows 10 and Windows 11 users can now visit Microsoft Store and download it right away without any hassle.
There are a tad bit of differences between the app client for Windows 10 and 11 though. The Teams app for Windows 10 can host three types of accounts i.e. personal, work, and school while the Windows 11 client can host two types of accounts only i.e. school and work.
Although the app remains the same across the board, it is only that Windows 11 will not be able to operate their personal accounts on the Teams app downloaded via the Microsoft Store. Instead, they will have to go through Microsoft’s website to download the same.
Microsoft Teams app currently has more than 270 million active monthly users and the number is growing exponentially, especially during this era where companies are shifting to WFH models instead of WFO.
Both Windows 10 and Windows 11 users will enjoy seamless upgrades on their Microsoft Teams app as these updates will be levied automatically. There’s an upcoming Microsoft Build 2022 between May 24 and 26 where the Redmond-based giant will be releasing some new updates for the communications app as well.
