Access Microsoft Teams in Windows 11

Instead of continuing with the development of Windows 10, Microsoft has decided on a new operating system – Windows 11, which will be released sometime towards the end of this year.

The best news for all users is that they won’t have to pay anything extra, they just have to be careful that their PCs meet the minimum requirements.

But even that can be easily checked because Microsoft is ready with anything and has provided the proper tool to see if your PC is Windows 11 ready.

Windows 11 should be much faster than its predecessor and involves much more practical innovations.

As communication is the key to success, then you should know that Microsoft Teams will become very visible on the new OS, which can only make fans happy.

This communication platform, which allows online meetings and offers chat functionality, will be integrated directly into this system, as opposed to Skype, which will only become accessible in the Microsoft Store.

If you’re wondering how you’ll be able to access Teams after the launch of the new OS, things are easier than you thought.

How can I use Microsoft Teams on my Windows 11 PC?

With Windows 11, the last remnants of the live icons in the Start menu that we’re all so used to will now disappear.

Users are now offered to place the icons of the apps they use most frequently or want to access most quickly in the new Start menu.

And the big change, both visually and functionally, will revolutionize the routine of decades past: the Start menu will move to the center of the screen, and the programs and documents used frequently will be displayed.

But what we’re interested in today is the Microsoft Teams button that comes integrated directly into the Taskbar, which is a big change for users.

From here, you can start chatting or calls just one click away and share documents, texts, or images as before.

Here, users will be allowed to turn off the microphone or launch presentations. The new interface comes with a Meet button in the top left where you can create a video call or invite other users.

A big plus is that other users will be able to join the meeting without needing a Microsoft account or whether they are using a PC, Android, or iOS device.

It’s also worth mentioning that the new Teams platform also supports sending SMS messages to Android or iOS.

Thus, the Meet Now feature of what will already be the former Windows 10 is replaced by the Chat app, which you can easily find pinned to the taskbar by default.

The new cross-platform also comes with another benefit: it will consume half as much memory as the current form that users are successfully using anyway, which is just another big plus.

Another feature worth mentioning for wishers is that the app will allow for multiple accounts and the ability to scale quickly for customers who need it. Businesses can use this, sign up for Teams Exploratory, and try out the premium features for free.

As already mentioned in the intro, it looks like this new vision of Chat will replace the veteran Skype as an OS-integrated messaging client.
