  • Microsoft Teams is an alternative to Skype for business which is making some good headway in the market.
  • It now seems that on Windows 11, users cannot access the Teams app on 365 accounts.
  • The Teams admin clarified the issue and said it was only temporary as they work on unifying both the work and school versions.

Teams bring together people, conversations, and content to help teams be more productive. It offers a chat-based workspace, modern meetings, and calling, alongside shared notebooks to keep everyone on the same page and a Files tab to store all your documents in one place.

Whereas Microsoft has made headway over the past year with the Teams app with numerous updates and new improved features such as automatic music detection and noise suppression, it now seems that the app no longer supports 365 accounts.

It seems like it is not a problem with Teams per se but that business accounts are not supported. Whether it is because there’s no dedicated “business” client or because Microsoft is treating business users as individuals that use their personal accounts.

Work or school version

Microsoft Teams on Windows 11 is the future of workplace collaboration, and it’s likely to become a central component in how many businesses operate. By providing a single, unified workspace for all your team to communicate, Microsoft Teams is designed to make it easier for teams to work together.

Users gathered on a Reddit thread as they were somewhat confused when they could no longer access the application.

While there is only one Android app for teams, it supports both personal and work accounts.

The Teams Admin was prompt to respond and clarified the confusion. The version you need depends on the kind of school or business you’re involved in. The personal/home version is not intended to be used with educational institutions, so you will have to install the work/school version if your school uses it.

This is only a temporary situation as Microsoft plans to unify both sometime later.
